Thankgiving wines and winter gardening

Had a lovely Thanksgiving meal with friends in Marin. Lovely people, great food and Navarro Gewurz and Reisling, Cobb Pinto and Gary Farrell Zin, along with something sparkling that I did not see the label on. Everything was wonderful but the standouts for me were the pinot and the cauliflower gratin. Also, bacon on turkey works.

Today, still exhausted from the endless flu, we planted broccoli, cauliflower and pea starts along with random flowers for K and some fava bean seeds. last year the favas were a huge success, but were from starts.

Now time for "gingerbread puzzles" from a Martha Stewart recipe. Holiday weekend plus 7-year-old=much baking.

Tomorrow, more canning.
