I meant my choice of the word shackled yesterday only to refer to the contrast between an in-house day and a hiking-adventure day. Yes, I did considerable cooking, but that was so pretty much the only big thing (that is, to cook from scratch) I had to do today was make the pies. Shown here. And smelling terrific!
Fortunately, our guests are bringing most of the sides not related to the turkey, and appetizers, so I’m on EZ Street today!
