So, today is “Black Friday,” which retailers attempt to make the Biggest Shopping Day of the Year. (Online retailers have been grabbing for a piece of that pie as well with the relatively recently dubbed “Cyber Monday.”)
If today gets a color name, I think yesterday should too. I’m going with “Orange Thursday,” because really, aren’t most of the traditional Thanksgiving foods in the 590–620 nanometer range? Pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, turkey, gravy, stuffing…
We hosted Matthew’s family (including his sister in Texas via Skype!) and their significant others at our house. Everyone contributed to cooking for the meal or selecting wines. My favorite parts of the day were Dan (Matthew’s brother) explaining to Ricky (Joanna’s boyfriend) the entire plot of “While You Were Sleeping” (I got it on video!) and spinning the laptop around the table on our Lazy Susan so Amy could say hi to everyone. My favorite foods actually came after the mail meal, when we had a late supper of appetizers: cheese ball, stuffed mushrooms, and bacon-wrapped dates.
What (if anything) did you score at a sale today? What was on your plate yesterday?
