For me, Thanksgiving has long been a weekend for escape and then appreciation.
Until I started doing the Rockton Fair every year around 2003~4, I used to go canoing on the Grand River for three days and camping on the river side each night. Then I’d come home and take a few days extra holiday.
Now my daughter and I do sound for the fair for four days (really takes almost six days with set up tear down) and then I take the rest of the week to spend with family.
Not a huge Thanksgiving celebrater, though I don't pooh-pooh it. The wife and I will have a quiet meal at home.
The local Loblaw's had a bin of Honeycrisp apples on for 46 cents a pound. That's right, not a misprint. Mind you, they looked a touch ugly, and were designated as "orchard run", but certainly more than good enough to eat. I seized the opportunity and bought 10lbs or so, to make an outstanding apple crisp and a few jars of apple-berry compote, with plenty of apples left over. The peels weren't pretty, but hot damn, those are tasty apples. And since they usually go for anywhere from$2.49-$3.99/lb, I figured "When am I ever going to be able to go hog wild and make baked goods with Honeycrisp?". Hell, what do you think a retail jar of Honeycrisp applesauce would sell for...IF you could even find it?
