[quote=""Leyland""]Just finishing a cup of Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spice Holiday Herb Tea. Yummy - I've never thought about ginger tea before.

My young very sweet neighbor boys brought over a box past Saturday in sympathy - silly silly me tried to make a quick jump over the plastic dog barrier lying on my hardwood hallway but I caught a toe on the edge and feet went skidding. Next thing I know, I've fallen hard on the floor and am staring up at the ceiling. Very ouch. Kinda like getting tossed off a horse.

Ack! Poor you! Take care!

[quote=""LCW""]Today I found Tim Tams at the grocery store. I remember someone metioning them on this thread so I had to try them. Delicious!!! I had some with a nice cup of my favorite Darjeeling tea this afternoon. I also had the most delicious German Gingerbread cookies that I found at Trader Joe's. A decadent afternoon for sure!

And tonight I'm cooking cornish game hens, roasted cauliflower with gruyere cheese, fresh baked bread, and pumpkin flan for dessert. I took today and the rest of the week off so I have time to cook and play! I'm putting my new Kitchen Aid mixer to good use. I love it! It has completely changed baking for me!![/quote]

I had heard that they were releasing them in the US now, after Hugh Jackman took them on Oprah! The only problem with that is that I always used to put a few in packages when I sent them around the world! Guess I don't have to any more!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

The usual. Turkey with cranberry-orange-pineapple relish, pecan yams, mashed potatoes and gravy, deviled eggs, Waldorf salad, green beans (with bacon for most, without for the vegetarian DIL) and pumpkin pie with ice cream.

I am not the domestic type, so I prepped a lot of it ahead of time, only to face the daughter's disappointment. "Fixing the food is most of the fun!" says she. Now I know why I leave most of the festive cooking to her and the SIL.

Nobody paid attention to the food anyway-- the new granddaughter stole the show. :p

MLE, that relish sounds great! I do an orange cranberry one every year, just a bag of cranberries, the zest of an orange, and one cup of orange juice. Simple but delish!

I'm still full from yesterday!! We had turkey, mashed potatoes w/ gravy, brussel sprouts with raisins and pine nuts, roasted beets w/ carrots and pearl onions, my sausage apple rice dressing, maple orange sweet potatoes w/ pecans, rolls, and pumpkin pie and cherry corn cobbler for dessert!

Lots of food! And we're doing it all again tomorrow with my family!! We're going to switch up the menu a bit!
