It’s Thanksgiving Day and I’m still far from family and home. I was invited to take part in a group Thanksgiving meal at the Lost Dog Cafe, which was fun. If not for that event I would have been eating by myself in a restaurant. It was great to cook in a commercial kitchen again, and I made a dish and helped with other dishes while having a few laughs. Coincidentally, one of the women in this group invited her father, who happened to be a coworker of my dad’s at Western Electric — or whatever it was called back then. Maybe New York Telephone. It was also AT&T Technologies for awhile and now it’s Lucent. NYNEX was in the mix, too, I think. Really annoying dealing with the name of that company. Anyway, the food – and there was a boatload of it – was tasty. There were three turkeys and lots of sides. Liz made a stuffing with, I think, canned pumpkin, eggs, sage and stock that had a pudding-like quality to it. She used large squares of bread and baked it until it was crispy. Steve, Matt and my Mom had a friend over and Matthew sent me a photo of their turkey via his cell phone, which I will include here. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
