What American accent do you have?

You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

I hate it when that happens.

Thanksgiving Menu

We'll be having turkey for Thanksgiving. How 'bout y'all?

We are hosting a small T-day get-together for the warillever family -- just me, Mr. warillever, his mother, Uncle Ichabod, and the Agents. Nothing like the forty-person dinners that I'm used to at my folks' house.

Dinner for six should not be stressful -- I do it frequently -- but this is the mother of all feasts, a holiday based upon the abundance of tasty food. I am a little nervous. I have my menu planned, and have been testing out squash dishes for weeks. By the way, I have settled on butternut squash casserole from It is too sweet for my taste, but Mr. warillever approved of it, which might be a first for him on a cooked veggie.

Otherwise, everything will be quite plain:

  • Turkey
  • gravy (jars as backup)
  • mashed potatoes
  • squash casserole (make on Wednesday, in oven last hour of turkey)
  • green beans (steam on stove)
  • corn (frozen)
  • carrots (boil on stove)
  • stuffing (Thursday am)
  • cranberry sauce (from can)
  • crackers/pretzels/breadsticks (from bags)
  • veggies (chop, blanch some)
  • 3 dips (Wednesday evening)
  • oatmeal raisin cookies (kids make Tuesday)
  • apple pie (kids make Monday, bake Tuesday)
