01:13 am - Culinary possibilities
Out amidst running various errands today, teaotter and I stopped at a nearby farmers market that is normally closed for the year, but had a special pre-Thanksgiving day. I picked up the carrots I'll be using for carrot soup at one of the two Thanksgivings we'll be doing this year (the large one on Thanksgiving day, the other, with less exceedingly social friends, like xtricks & athenian_abroad on Saturday). Wandering around, I saw an odd fruit, I picked it up, realized it was a quince, and was then deliciously overwhelmed by the smell. They have a smell that partakes of both fruit and flowers and is utterly amazing. I got two, and if I see more at any of the stores I'm going to, I may get another. For the Thankgivings I'll make carrot soup, pumpkin pecan pie, a pumpkin pie, and Thai chicken and potato samosa like appetizers. However, a few days after both, I will take the quinces, and some apples, and make this pie or something similar - this one is just for the three of us :) In any case, I've never cooked with quinces before, and they look to be amazing.

Y'know, between you and Lyssa and Ben, I'm feeling like a really crappy cook. Then again, if I really wanted to place myself correctly, I'd torment myself by letting my sister cook Thanksgiving food. Her stuff is so bad, the dogs won't eat it. I have proof of this, by the way.
