Tonight is the annual harvest dinner at our church, a big shindig wherein a couple of hundred of us celebrate God's goodness, stuff ourselves with a huge pot-luck feast, and enjoy a wide variety of down-home entertainment.
It occurred to me, though, with precious little time left in the afternoon, as I was considering what I would bring, that the main course tonight is turkey.
It is a turkey dinner.
I'm not sure if I know how to eat a turkey dinner without my great-grandmother's traditional carrot bread.
I mentioned it to the kids, and they were in.
I do believe the three of us just set a new land speed record for the making of a triple batch of carrot bread--one hour twenty minutes--including grating the carrots and chopping the walnuts.
Bonus: I now have a loaf to serve with a breakfast this week and another to save for our next class. I can make plenty more for the holidays later.
