I remember as a girl playing over at my friend Kristen's house around Christmas time and her mom gave a a can of faux-snow to sort of fog the edges of the window panes (actually, they were faux-window panes too). No faux-snow, or rather faux-fogging, here.
We are going over to friends for Thanksgiving, so no major rush or meal planning here. In fact, I've just been trying to cook from the cupboards this week. Providential meal planning. Great fun. Especially when you have everything on hand to make something that turns out kind of fancy. Dan came home from work and saw that I had the French cookbook out. He's always happy when he sees that. So poached fish in white wine with a mushrooms cream sauce it was. Who would have thought that could just come from the cupboards??
