I got home late this evening (session with Arthur), and I still have to make a chocolate pie for the Thanksgiving lunch at work tomorrow. Luckily the recipe is VERY easy. The hard part is the chocolate cookie crust, which is easy. The filling gets whipped up in the blender and then it's refrigerated. It's the first of Alton's recipes that I've tried. I think I just won't mention at work tomorrow that the filling is based on tofu. Well, douse ANYTHING in enough chocolate...
Work has been extremely busy and it doesn't help that my boss keeps stopping me. "Call these people today. Write up this refund today. Work these edits today." It apparently all needs to be done today.
But on the upside, she approved the extra day off I asked for next week, as well as the day after Christmas. So I'm getting two five-day weekends in one month. I would love to have had New Year's Eve off but since I'm the payment poster I can't have the last day of the month off any more.
I hope they let us go early after the lunch tomorrow. That way I can go to the craft store before my grocery delivery arrives, so I can get the yarn for the afghan I want to make. Meantime, I've submitted a couple of questions for Thanksgiving Live, and I'm recording it just in case they use one of them. Hearing my name on the Food Network -- that would be AWESOME.
Less than 24 hours to the weekend.
