Thanksgiving Sunset on Overdrive

Those who know me know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday by far. This past Thanksgiving1 was an extended holiday. Steve spent about a week out on the west coast and cooked his best Thanksgiving meal ever! Delicious. In our typical fashion of trying to minimize waist2, we did’t cook a turkey—just a ham.
