I have just returned from my annual 'Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner- Grocery Store Shopping- Trip', from Hell!!!!
Two hours, two shopping carts full of 'stuff' and $170 later, I hit the checkout line and suddenly realize..... I FORGOT MY WALLET!!!!!! They were nice enough to guard my carts(s) while I went home and retreived said wallet. Some of the items on 'The List' I had never heard of before but I managed to find everything. Almost!
The one missing ingredient was Kern's Pear Nectar, which I KNOW I have seen there before. And don't even ask what it was to be used for.... No clue. But probably some sort of fancy-smancy cocktail thing.
Soooo, back to the store I got to buy pears. They HAVE to be ripe. Now, has anyone tried to buy ripe pears in a supermarket?? Billiard balls are softer than those things are!! But after squeezing 247 of them I managed to come up with 6 semi-ripe ones. Now the fun part!! Making homemade pear nectar!! I brought in the juicer but it's up to Becky now.
As for the complete menu, she lost me at Turkey. But I'm sure it will be great. My wife IS a wonderful cook!
I just wish the ingredients were easier to find. And Oh yeah!! I DID find those dried Crimini mushrooms. I'm so proud!!
I wish all of you a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
And Never, EVER forget your wallet!!
