Oh that’s right, it’s Thanksgiving weekend. Well, it’s Canadian Thanksgiving, often referred to as Proper Thanksgiving, Better Thanksgiving, or More Righter Thanksgiving. Not to be confused with American Thanksgiving, or Wrong Thanksgiving (Wrong-giving), which happens at some other point of time. So, before I start work on the Thanksgiving dinner mise en place, I need to get out the G.O.B. Mise en Place where we talk about stuff, things, and you get a peak at what is coming soon to the blog.
What’s Going On-
Cooking, cooking, cooking. Getting ready for our own family dinner set for 16+ is enough for one weekend. As a Red Seal cook, the brunt of the burden usually automatically falls to me. It’s cool, I do enjoy it. And, my father is usually a big help too. Anyways, I have a lot of prep to get done today. I also started a tradition of making a crab apple pie a couple years ago. So, yeah. This’ll be a quick Mise en Place, cause I got work to do for Proper Thanksgiving.
We have a special guest visiting our home this weekend. Alex’s kindergarten class pet, Chester. Chester is a stuffed racoon who has already had great adventures like dressing up like a superhero or camping out with some of Alex’s other classmates. The goal is to invite Chester into your family activities and share it with the class. So, it only makes sense that Chester would make an appearance on the Mise en Place.
Last Week’s Posts-
- Check out October in Pop Culture History.
- Ploggy-Ball is the title for the latest sports/musical Plog the Podcast episode.
- I finally got my review up of Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
- Deconstructed featured Flash this week with one of the craziest covers we’ve seen yet. Check it out!
As always you can look forward to a fresh episode of Plog the Podcast on Tuesday. I have no idea what that will look like yet as we are hitting record later today. I have been plotting a fresh Top 10, which I haven’t done in a while. So, look forward to that in the next couple weeks. There is a couple book reviews on their way still. I think I will set a day of the week dedicated to reviews. That way each week I can do a review of a book, graphic novel, or kidlit and there will be a steadier stream of such. And, what if there was a fresh Deconstructed up for the weekend?
Thanks booknerds, happy Better Thanksgiving weekend.
