Thanksgiving- In photos

Cornbread batter poured into hot oil in the cast iron skillet...yum!

Snow works good for cooling down cornbread quickly.

It was a little sad to break apart all that cornbread for dressing. I might have eaten a bite or two.

Yum yum yum!

I thought of you yesterday -- there is an oil and vinegar store in my parents' downtown area, and I bought some fig balsamic vinegar! (I also bought a honey-ginger WHITE balsamic vinegar that is to DIE for!)
