We also were fortunate that the local grocery store was open today because when it came time to start applying the marinade Lisa wanted to do, she couldn't find any of the several jars of honey that she was sure we had. Looking meaningfully at Kuma Bear (who looked quite innocent), we popped over to Scolari's and supported local farmers by buying a jar of alfalfa honey made in Lovelock, Nevada.
Making something of an occasion of things, we ate in the living room (rather than our normal dining table in the trailer). Here's what things looked like just before digging in.
We thoroughly enjoyed dinner. The duck turns out to have been just the right size for us, so we won't be having to work our way through days of turkey leftovers. We went for a long walk after dinner to the Fernley Nugget casino (about 4 km round trip), where Lisa sat down to play a slot machine, but not for long, because she hit a jackpot on the third or fourth pull and walked away $4 ahead before we headed home. My blood sugar level when we got back wasn't as low as I would have liked, but low enough that I think I can handle a slice of pumpkin pie.
Lisa says this is the best Thanksgiving she can ever remember. Lisa says she was very happy to be so domestic today.
