Yesterday was Saturday. So was the day before. And so was the day before that. Tomorrow is Monday. Today, when I first remembered that tomorrow is Monday, I couldn't remember what projects I'm working on and thought, "I wonder if I still know how to program..." Time will tell.

One of my family's best traditions is Practice Thanksgiving. Here's a good way to imagine it (remember these from elementary school?):

Practice Thanksgiving : Thanksgiving :: Rehearsal : Performance

After this year's two practices, the real thing went very well. We elected for the "healthy" yams instead of the healthy yams, the rolls were butter-sodden and fluffy...

Aside: I'm pretty sure I'm going to leave this earth clutching my failing heart as it struggles to pump blood through my dry, sealed arteries. Either that, or the butter and bacon grease lubricating my veins will ease my heart's burden to the tune of 40 extra years of life. End aside.

...I made a banana cream pie with a pecan, graham cracker crust (ingredients: 1 pkg graham crackers, 3/4 c. or so pecans, 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 stick butter). Definitely my favorite pie. The turkey, potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce (made fresh by Mom), gravy and green beans all tasted great. And it was fun to spend the day with my family.

No pic today. But the square root of 689 is about 26.3

Hahaha. Yeah, we also had rolls that had butter in the dough, butter brushed on them before and after they were cooked, and then butter on the table. Also, the green beans that came had bacon on them, and the yams had sugar and marshmallows.
Also, I appreciate the analogy.

That crust sounds divine...thanks for the ingredients!

And just to let you know, math never has been, nor will it ever be a replacement for images. ;D

That banana cream pie sounds absolutely divine! Also, I am so glad to hear that somebody else in the world has a mother who makes her own cranberry sauce--it is so good!
