|our 2010 Thanksgiving turkey|
Being Williams-Sonoma, of course, the instructor was a little snooty and gave disapproving glances to a woman who confessed to using a grocery-store aluminum pan to roast her turkeys. The store's roasting pans are very nice and were even on sale, but really? who wants to spend $199 on a roasting pan to use once or twice a year? They have an even bigger model for $279. What? And these are sale prices, kids. After lunch we stopped in Home Goods, and they had an equally fabulous Cuisinart roasting pan for around $59. Personally, I use my grandmother's old enamel roasting pan. Anyway, the class was fun and we got to save 10% on our Williams-Sonoma purchases. I managed to control myself and only got a couple of whisks that I really needed.
learned to crochet very recently, but I think the cloth turned out well. I made a similar one for my daughter last month. I found the pattern, Bubble Dishcloth, on Ravelry; it's easy and pretty quick to make.
Two and a half weeks until Thanksgiving. I'm already feeling thankful today -- for my old pan, my new whisks, crochet thread, and mostly my family and friends.
