back in the kitchen

I am home and I am cooking!  I picked up my turkey today from the butcher and it is HUGE...oops there will only be ten for tablenosh, but I guess we will enjoy any leftovers.  We had an awesome time in Fiji and I did indeed find a cookbook and managed to bring home some curry powder too. That country could pretty much just live off coconuts if they wanted, there is so much you can do with a coconut tree...who knew!?  The cookbook I got uses coconut in every recipe, I am looking forward to trying them out soon.  Maybe once I make it through tomorrow!

I think I may be a little over-tired and exhauasted from the trip as I am feeling a bit unsure about tomorrow night.  Just hoping I can whip up some of the classics from my family as well as add some extras.  The spiced pumpkin cheescake is in the oven now and I just finished making my Aunt Isa's cranberry-apple sauce.  I am waking up at the crack of dawn to go to the veggie market and pick up the rest of what I need.  I have managed to figure out how to extend my table to seat ten, so it is going to be a full house.  I just hope I get it all ready by 7:00!!!

Okay I better get myself to bed so I can wake up tommorow!  Here's to 'tablenosh' dinner is gonna be family style fun.  Just like Christmas :)
