    Let me brag a little. I’ll be part of the officiating crew working the highest level football championship in my state Saturday evening.

    Also, Thanksgiving dinner at a Wisconsin supper club. Other than that, pure laziness.Report

    Reading and sleeping.

    I started things off right today by sleeping from 8pm last night until 8:30 this morning, then from noon-3:30 this afternoon.

    So good.Report

    Harvested a deer on Monday, butchered on Tuesday…prepping loins for Thanksgiving.

    Today harvested 2 ducks we raised and just finished rendering about 1/2 cup pure golden duck fat. So excited…maybe too excited.

    Planning to saute the livers in the fat as a side to the grilled Breasts and Venison Loin… which we’ll sauce with a fermented cherry and cranberry chutney.

    Trying new sous vide technique to confit the thighs…about 30 more hours to go. Will start duck pancetta tomorrow.

    Looking forward to pairing with my favorite wine, Chateau Musar from Lebanon…probably my last bottle of the 2002.

    Love harvest season.

    College Senior daughter is bopping around Quebec, but college sophomore son is home. 4 yr old is still 4. All the in-betweens still betwixt. Just us for dinner. Will watch the Bears and talk religion and politics all day because we can.Report

    Many New Zealand shops have started offering Black Friday sales.

    Also, it will be 2 weeks until the next big expansion for my favourite game will be released.

    These two facts combined may have resulted in me buying a giant Lego rocket.Report

    Heading to a cabin on the side of Mt. Hood, just the wife and I for two days, then a couple we share times like this are coming up.

    Nothing planned, except maybe cold cuts and beer/wine.

    Glorious lack of stress. Oh, and I even talked the wife into bringing real books.Report
