Thanksgiving Malaise

Mmmfff… too… much… food… in… tummy.Robert and Mike came over today to share in some Thanksgiving goodness. I think Jennifer and I overdid it as far as our first Thanksgiving meal. We made: golden cheddar soup, green beans, Waldorf salad, stuffed pork roast, stuffed cornish hens, stuffing, mashed potatoes, garlic bread, and pumpkin cheesecake. Mike contributed some garlic bread with homemade garlic spread and some homemade vanilla ice cream. Never having prepared such a large meal before, we had some timing problems getting everything ready at the same time. Having one only one oven with so many things requiring an oven was a pain. Also, not having any experience preparing cornish hens or port roast led to a bit of guessing. The pork roast turned out to be way too dry and overcooked. The cornish hen turned out well, though. Oh, and the extra stuffing was too dry, too. And much of the other stuff was cold by the time we got to it. Ugh. We’ll get it right eventually.As a side note, I had Kruder & Dorfmeister‘s The K&D Sessionsô in the hi-fi while cleaning up after dinner. The second track of the second disk has a remix of a Sofa Surfers song called Sofa Rockers. When it came on, I realized it’s the same music that plays when you first install a copy of Mac OS X on your computer and are asked to register with Apple. I’m not sure if the track that is played during registration is the original or the remix since it only playes for about 20 seconds or so and then fades out. I guess I’ll have to track down the original to find out.
