Although I did miss my family very much today at dinner (and yes, I even missed my dad's stories that he tells over and over and over again), it was nice to have a quiet dinner with Jason that we cooked together, and it felt especially nice to start new traditions and try new things.
Really, the newest thing about Thanksgiving this year was that we made tofurkey.
It's tiny and kind of salty, but it was a good alternative.
I also made my own cranberry sauce, only I tried it with less sugar, and it tastes better that way!
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar (let the two boil together)
3 cups cranberries
Let cranberry skin pop and serve. Easy peasy.
Happy Thanksgiving from my crazy family to yours!
