So, I had heard the name Alton Brown before, but I had never seen him before last night. I was struck by his resemblance to my friend Brian. Is Alton Brown Brian's real father or is he a future version of Brian, who has escaped the apocalyptic destruction of the future in a time machine to come back and be a culinary celebrity? You decide.
In other culinary news, I spent all day cooking Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and Jason and Chris came over for a couple hours and ate a little bit. The turkey came out well, though it was sort of scary when I first started carving it and it was oozing all over. I guess I hadn't let it set long enough. My pies came out a bit underdone. Not sure what happened there, but my vinegar pie developed a thick top crust on the filling, but beneath that it was gooey. The crust was really good though. Jason brought a good apple and sweet potato mix and some kicking cranberry relish/chutney. The rest of the day was about cleaning and Puzzle Quest. I did finally buy Naruto and I've started playing that today as a way to take a break from Puzzle Quest which is getting a lot harder now. But I must learn the Death Gaze spell!
