Dinner to remember

Next time you pour yourself a glass of champagne, add a blackberry or two. There are endless hours of fun to be had watching the bubbles force the fruit to tumble in the glass. I am sure this is illustrative of some important scientific principle, but I have no idea which one.

I cracked open the Veuve Clicquot at about 10:30am yesterday. The reason? I have been accused of being something of a control freak in the kitchen and, since Hansel was determined to take charge of the Thanksgiving dinner, everyone thought it was best that I chill with a glass in my hand. It worked. I was completely happy and carefree all day and Hansel did a great job at the stove.His particular triumphs were the stuffing with sausage meat and the collard greens which he cooked with turkey necks. That meat was actually much more delicious than the big bird itself. Not all of these dishes photograph well but I document them below, a proud record of a great achievement from a promising cook.
