Signs of Thanksgiving; Nap Time
Just a quick note to check in and to let you know that I've emerged from my cookbook-writing cave and have survived the ordeal. Mister MA stepped right up to the plate and kept this desk jockey well nourished and nurtured. He gets a gold star.
This is all to say that I'm taking the day off from writing in this space in order to recharge and dish up something delicious in tomorrow's space.
Even in seclusion, I noticed that the word "Thanksgiving" has begun to surface in the usual places. Local farms are now accepting orders for Thanksgiving turkeys. Yesterday, I noticed a sign-up sheet at the Smithfresh Meats stand at Columbia Pike farmers' market. Local apple cider is here too, a welcome addition to my fridge. Keep your eyes peeled for the much-anticipated arrival of pear cider, a nectar of the goddesses that is usually available for a few short weeks.
Monthly food mags have begun releasing their Thanksgiving issues; I've already received my holiday copies of Bon Appetit and Food & Wine. Once a few more arrive in the mail, I'll report back on the coverage and trends for this season.
Have you seen any other signs of Thanksgiving in your recent travels? (I don't mean to alarm, but it's 6 1/2 weeks away) Share your T-Day alerts in the comments area below. Tomorrow is chat day; Drop me a line if you're in the neighborhood.
