From blog to kitchen...

As previously mentioned, in addition to the usual turkey, apple pie and autumnal sides, we decided to add a little cake to our Thanksgiving this year.

[Ideal] & [Actual]

Assembled by my dad - despite universal doubts, and with an exuberance that led to an unintentional doubling of the number of marshmallows - it actually tasted pretty good. So much so that almost everyone had a slice for breakfast the next morning.

[sorry haters- yum!]

Then on the drive home, I found two more foods to be thankful for...

Eating a potato chip that tastes EXACTLY like a juicy pork rib is a testament to the very best applied science (post-Wright bros) has to offer. Anything is possible!

Anyone interested in an impromptu trip to Disney World?

Baseball's Winter Meetings: Monday Dec 6th - Thursday Dec 9th

I'm headed down there from the 5th - 9th, but from my past experiences with the winter meetings, I'll only have a few short amounts of time where I'll have baseball related things to do. Otherwise, I'll have a lot of free time, and it might be fun to have some company down in Disney World. Plus, you'll get to see lots of famous baseball people.

Think about it.
