23 - Archibald 223 - Archibald 2 23 - Archibald 323 - Archibald 3 We needed a break from the kitchen today, the day before Thanksgiving.  My sister Erica is here from Germany for her first U.S. Thanksgiving in 34 years, and although we are not hosting the family event, we are doing most of the food prep.  We brined the turkey and made stuffing, a flourless chocolate torte with raspberry sauce, fresh cranberry relish, mashed sweet potatoes, and roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and onion and cranberries and walnuts.  Tomorrow we will roast the turkey, make the gravy, and cook green beans.  Other family members are bringing items to round out the traditional menu, and we will meet at my sister Anne's house in Mt. Airy.  It will be nice to have almost everyone together.
