Music For Turkeys to Cook By
Music For Turkeys to Cook By... how I love that phrase! This turkey will be baking dozens of rolls, making a pan of apple crisp, and roasting several pounds of brussel sprouts today.
And the music? I'll start with something classical: Bach Preludes or some of Yo-Yo Ma's cello pieces will make the dicing and slicing go faster.
Bread rises best when accompanied by quiet jazz, so my favorite pianist, Cyrus Chestnut, will encourage the yeast with his album "Blessed Quietness".
We will be celebrating the holiday in a home that was built not long after the first Thanksgiving on the shores of the Connecticut River...
What are your plans?
