I’m well! Excited for Thanksgiving break. How are you? RT @BeaCamilleri: @ggdarcy How are you Miss Darcy?Gigi Darcy
Yes! Looking forward to hanging with him over Thanksgiving. :) RT @DeBelle77: @ggdarcy Will you be seeing your brother?Gigi Darcy
In a fit of madness, I decided that I would prepare thanksgiving dinner this year. Which is why I’m up at this ungodly hour.Caroline Lee
Menu: coffee bean turkey, stuffing (regular and gluten-free for @ggdarcy), brussels sprouts, yamsCaroline Lee
I think I have everything I need. I hope.Caroline Lee
and @FitzOnTheFitz made me promise to let him handle dessert. He’s making a pie of some kind. Pecan or pumpkin, something starting with “p”Caroline Lee
Here I go, off to the kitchen. Wish me luck.Caroline Lee
Damn. I don’t have any cheeseclothCaroline Lee
Anybody recommend a good youtube video on how to truss a turkey? The ones I’ve seen are…contradictory.Caroline Lee
Oh, thank you! RT @MiPiAi: @that_caroline search the new york times site for their turkey tips: trussing video. Quick and fool proof.Caroline Lee
How can we have run out of twine?Caroline Lee
Had to wake @bingliest up and send him on an emergency supply run. And to get more coffee.Caroline Lee
@bingliest where are you? why aren’t you back yet?Caroline Lee
@that_caroline sorry, it’s a madhouse out here. on my way.Bing Lee
since @bingliest is still not back yet. I’ve had to enlist @fitzonthefitz to go out and get a few more last minute thingsCaroline Lee
Remind me, why did I want to do this?Caroline Lee
@that_caroline you need a better oven thermometer that that old busted one. picked up one for you.Fitz Williams
I swear I shall bend this kitchen to my will by the time @wmdarcy gets back from picking @ggdarcy up from the airport.Caroline Lee
Turkey is in the oven. Finally. Now to do…everything else.Caroline Lee
Still peeling chestnuts.Caroline Lee
So maybe we’ll all have the gluten-free stuffing. That casserole dish was hideous anyway – nobody will miss it.Caroline Lee
Okay, I think everything’s on track. I’m just going to quickly change clothesCaroline Lee
Apparently, I didn’t change fast enough. Sprouts are burntCaroline Lee
glad to be with @wmdarcy and friends on Thanksgiving. And thanks to @that_caroline for cooking an awesome mealGigi Darcy
@ggdarcy don’t forget about those incredible pumpkin and pecan pies that @fitzonthefitz made.Bing Lee
I win Thanksgiving! #nomFitz Williams
