Thanksgiving 2021

A quiet day at home

With on/off rain and a chill in the air, this year's Thanksgiving was a quiet affair.

Still aware of COVID-19, and relatives recovering from chemotherapy, means we are on our own today.

Had a lie in and played a little Destiny 2 in the morning, with an eye on the work Slack channel in case anything stopped working.


Coffee and a light Breakfast, skipped Lunch, and had a huge cooked Dinner:

  • Roast chicken breasts
  • Sweet potato casserole
  • Roast potatoes (came out great)
  • Roast carrots
  • Yorkshire puddings (not great, need more practice)
  • Stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Cranberry jelly
  • Crescent rolls

Overall I was very happy with how it turned out. And the three of us eating together.


Spent the early evening catching up on RSS feeds, listening to the Hypnogogue podcast, and eating some cheesecake.

I also spent a little time going through Evernote, looking for draft posts. Found quite a few. Going to try and finish a couple before the years out.
