My gratitude list, Thanksgiving 2011. In no particular order:
1. My roommate, Kurt, who opened his home to a virtual stranger. In addition to keeping a roof over my head, introducing me to his friends, treating me to theater outings and being an amazing cook, he is also an adventurous eater. Case in point: this lamb stew I concocted and served over grits before I flew to Quincy for the holiday.
kick-ass pumpkin pecan cheesecake with candied pecans for Thanksgiving. It was a huge hit! Just as awesome as it looked on the cover of Southern Living. Too bad my own sister didn't get a slice. Looks like a remake is in order.
Ready! Aim! Fire! Grateful for a year full of new discoveries in 2011 and excited to see what's in store for 2012.
It's always good to go back to Quincy and remember that matter how far I roam, there's no place like home.
