As this Thanksgiving weekend comes to a close, let me just say that I have a million things to be thankful for. I feel dopey naming them, as the dear ones are the greatest cliches: people to love, an able mind, hands that can work, work to do with them, kind days. It has been a good year and I am grateful for it all.
Let me also say that I am grateful for that wonderful pop! cranberries make when they are boiled in sugared water into sauce. And I love the feel of pecans under the knife. It is a good, good time of year.
