Maybe I Think Too Much!

Cranberry sauce: Boil up some sugar and water, add some fresh cranberries, heat till they pop. Add other stuff if you want. Cool, serve. Who knew? Yum. Amazing. Years ago when I could still influence my kids, I made sure that they agreed with me that cranberry sauce was meant to be jiggly, and smooth and slip with a satisfying "slurp" from a can. None of that sour grandma stuff with lumps. Not at Thanksgiving, not ever. Well folks, I have been enlightened. Ocean spray go away. Come again another day. Or not.

Just Finished: Room *** A unique and unusual voice, fascinating story!
Currently Reading: Unaccustomed Earth - Jhumpa Lahiri

I never liked the smooth jiggly stuff in the can....... we like the whole berries with all the other good stuff added to it...Suppose to be good for you too!

I have 'Room' on my coffee table and I'm almost read to dive in. Must finish 'A Son of a Circus' first.

Cranberry sauce is one of my specialties ... Ocean Spray/Bah Humbug.
