Busman's Holiday I

Busman's holiday - when you do on vacation what you do for a living. I? am cooking.

The turkey, seasoned, vinegared and oiled, is upside down in the oven. Also in the oven is a cut up butternut squash, two cut-up pears and a lot of slices of ginger. This will be soup. The stock for the soup - the squash seeds, more ginger and some salt - is simmering.

On the stove as well is a saute of mushrooms, onions and celery, plus veggie stock, rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper. This will be mixed with challah croutons (made last night) and an egg plus more veggie stock to make dressing.

In the microwave is a mixture of carrots and parsnips sliced long. These will be tossed with shallot and olive oil for a side dish. There will also be spinach.

We have classic rock on the radio, having listened to "Alice's Restaurant".

Mother-in-law is bringing dessert and cranberry sauce. Jonathan is about to go shopping.
