Green Room - Week 29 - Day 8

What was your Favorite thing the Great Turkey brought you yesterday?

(What do you mean "What's the Great Turkey?" He comes into your house on Thanksgiving Eve and leaves presents and fully cooked feasts for all the *good people of the world*. Well, maybe *that's* why you don't get visited....)


What's your Favorite thing in this week's poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/809247.html ?

Heck, what's your Favorite thing in our Amazon store: http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20 ?

What are some of your Favorite books (that you think we should add to the "Other Books You Might Enjoy" section, for others to check out)?

Or you could always just type in your Favorite number into that Paypal link from yesterday. :P http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/809887.html

How likely to do you think "Favorites" is going to be something that shows up sometime soon? ;)

I've never had Turkey.

*Worries that 'favourites' is going to be a worrying twist.

Writer-brain: I saw a chair on the pavement on my way home. And my mind instantaneously came up with a complex story involving a chair being passed from house to house on a road, and when someone not on the road tried to take the chair they would mysteriously disappear.

Never had turkey? Are you vegetarian?

Still reading the poll, so can't say as far a favorite as yet. I think I've got 25-30 to go.

The Great Turkey provided me with such a wonderful feast! The only thing lacking was actual pumpkin pie, because the cousin brought a pumpkin bundt cake instead. I made a new recipe, one of Rachael Ray's, for Butternut Squash Mac 'n Cheese and it was delicious. You can't really taste the butternut squash in it, I think it mostly just adds color. :)

As far as things go with the family and the feasting and whatnot, my son superficially injured himself in a very me-fashion. Yep. He is definitely my child. =p

I have a whole thing of my Aunt's sweet potato crock pot recipe thing and it is so amazing and I could eat it forever but I'm going to eat all of the pie/cakes we took home instead, first, because I want to savor that sonofabitch.

Meanwhile I am being a "good" sister and baking a pumpkin pie for my brother though I'm not so sure how it'll turn out because I've literally never made a pie before. (I cheated and got a premade crust because I knew I would not have the energy for that after working midnight 'til 730am.)

I may be biased here but my own book, Akin to the Truth: A Memoir of Adoption and Identity is the item to buy!

Hope everyone had a happy one. I had a school parent make rum cake! It's like being in the islands, mon! AW

Yesterday, the Great Turkey brought a calm and mellow Thanksgiving for which I'm thankful. ;) And I have leftover pumpkin cheesecake for breakfast!

Still reading entries!

Ooh Pumpkin cheesecake sounds delicious, glad you had a good Thanksgiving :)

Yesterday's Great Turkey brought us lots of travel time, but also great company and a chocolate cream pie that was to die for. First real sugar splurge since September, so back on the wagon now, but damn-- it tasted chocolatey, instead of like that artificially-chocolate stuff you get at diners/restaurants/the frozen food section. Wow.

I was hoping for more Black Friday cyber-buys today, but looking through the amazon toys to donate for kids... meh. The current crop of toys is too merchandise-based and boring. Not enough "play" in the playsets. Where's the mondo multi-construction-vehicle playset I bought last year, huh? Huh?

ETA: also, am I the only one who looks at a toy, like a deep-sea diving ship with a creature inside, and thinks, "That could be weirder..." ?

the great turkey brought me so much food yesterday i had to go lie down so as not to hork all over the table. (no, seriously. i couldn't even finish my last dessert! and i ALWAYS finish dessert!) my parents and sister and i are on a mini-vacation in vermont, so we had thanksgiving buffet at the inn where we're staying, and it was SO GOOD but there was SO MUCH.

the dessert i couldn't finish was a maple mousse in a martini glass with bourbon jelly at the bottom, and it was so phenomenally tasty but by that point i'd eaten pretty much everything i could fit on my plate - and i made three trips to the buffet - i'd saved the mousse martini for last - that i just couldn't put the last bite in my mouth. i had a pecan pielet but no pumkin pie, but also i made pumpkin bread with chocolate chips on tuesday, so i felt like i'd gotten in my thanksgiving pumpkin baked good already.

(the stuffing was good but my dad's stuffing is better.)

just thinking about turkey is making me hungry.

i'm also still reading entries (and finishing my nanonovel >.< ) (on vacation) but suesniffsglue's entry is adorable.

Thank you so so much!!

My favorites from this week are already up. :D

As far as favorite books, I keep a running list of what I recommend to people. It's here. :)

The Great Turkey brought some kind of stomach bug to our house. Trip to Washington postponed in light of the partner being sick all day yesterday, but I'm gettin' stuff done around the house and I didn't get sick, so woo. :)

Thank you so much for including me!! Means a lot to me.

The Great Turkey brought me a much needed bit of time away from home with dear family. And a ridiculous amount of food. We ate blue crab and stone crab and lobster that my dad and brother in law caught this summer and then followed that with Thanksgiving traditional foods. And I'm getting caught up on my idoling, which feels fantastic. Dang but there are a lot of impressive writers in this thing. I need to go to bed, but there are entries still to read.

Book recommendations ... relevant to Idol, or mass writing, or something? I dunno. (But if you like my stuff, you'll love Deathless.)
