Menu: Thanksgiving Prep

The middle of the month has come and gone and I’m up to 30k words for Nanowrimo and I’m not sure I will make the whole 50k but I’m happy that I got this far. The cold weather has started rolling in and it makes the morning feel really long and slow but I am enjoying the turn away from a short and busy fall. In the meantime I’m still doing mostly boring cooking thanks to being so busy. I even crocheted a scarf this week!
