chocolate cake

I hope everyone had a good Turkey Day. We had a lovely one - though no turkey was involved. Since I'm not eating, Julian doesn't like turkey and the triplets will eat anything, I decided that roasting a couple chickens was just as good. And from what I hear - I was right.

After an emergency root canal yesterday morning, I came home early from work and then slept for almost 20 hours. Eventually I dragged myself upright and started cooking - stuffing, orange-cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, and roast chickens. Seth bought a pecan pie and his cousin brought us a lovely pumpkin pie - which didn't get eaten yet, but we'll have it for Shabbos.

Julian, of course, wouldn't eat anything but the chicken - but I had decided that I was absolutely NOT going to be a short order cook today, and he could eat what I was making or not. Abigail had seconds, thirds, and I think fourth servings of asparagus. Usually Sam loves asparagus, too - but today, Abby had it all.

I'm absolutely exhausted now, and it's not even 7 o'clock. The triplets are asleep - do you think I can manage to convince Julian that it's bedtime an hour early? Hrm.

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely day. Personally, I'm looking forward to next year!
