It's that time of year again -- the time when the holiday cooking magazine issues arrive. Last week we received Cook's Illustrated and today, my favorite, Bon Appetit arrived. And a bonus when I opened it up: I'm published! Okay, not really. But a couple years ago Big J and I had dinner at Southpark Seafood Grill and Wine Bar in Portland and I had the most amazing martini I had to write into RSVP to get the recipe. They finally put it in the magazine and I can't wait to try it out, perhaps with oysters on the half shell for a Thanksgiving appetizer.
So no the fun begins -- planning Thanksgiving dinner. It's a little over a month away and I have a lot of work to do! Stay tuned.
