As if the rest of the animals weren’t causing enough trouble, the sheep went to work yesterday when Miss Jacob escaped while we were trying to put the rogue lamb back.
Today is a major work day here. That sounds funny since every day is a major work day here, but today is especially set aside and the children relieved of their social lives to devote themselves to outdoor farm labor. ALL DAY. They’re very excited. Meanwhile, I’m roasting a turkey and putting dressing in the oven.
Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing, set to meld flavors overnight before baking.
I like to cook “Thanksgiving” dinner numerous times throughout the year. I think it’s too good to just have once. You? (I stopped short of making pumpkin pie.) I fixed most of the meal in advance so that we could work all day and come inside to a lovely dinner. (I’ll pretend the maid cooked it!)
