I Love This Time of Year

It's a beautifully crisp night out tonight - weather that reminds me strongly of the Northeast. The air is very cold and smells like decaying leaves and far-off chimneys. Your breath hangs in the air after you exhale or talk...it just feels right. I really love this season the best, but can't point to just one thing - it's a combination of them all.

Mrs. Monkey and I are getting things in order to put Thanksgiving Dinner on the table this year. It's going to be a lot of fun this time around - we'll have Mrs. Monkey's mom and grandmother here, as well as our good friends A&E. We're very excited about the full table. I'm going to cook some of my famous pork stuffing and Mrs. Monkey is making her famous pumpkin pecan pie. Yum!! Any favorites out there? The stuffing is something my mom made every year and I just LOVED. I could eat it all by itself by the pound. What was your family's favorite dish?

Oh, and I have a TV in my office that stopped working a few months ago. It just all of a sudden up and died one day. Was the strangest thing... Well, I've tried to turn it on and see if it's running a few times but the status hasn't changed. So, I was sitting in there the other night, and I just had this feeling I should turn it on and check...I ignored the urge for a while, but finally I turned it on, just to appease the notion. Well, sure enough, it was working again. It was the weirdest thing. But, at least it's working again.

I'm all about the side dishes. But if I had to narrow it down to one thing, it would have to be Luigi's cannolis. (Luigi is not a family member, it's a bakery and a fine one at that. We even got our wedding cake there, but I digress.)

I've been wanting to try TurDuckHen for a while, but haven't ever had it. Let me know how it is if you do, FU...

Are you bringing the Cannolis A? There's gonna be lots of good food here, regardless.

E - right you are, my man. Mrs. Monkey said she wanted to give you a hug for that statement...there have been no truer statements made this week...
