Happy Thanksgiving

Our chef at work made my turkey, chestnut stuffing, gravy, and cranberry-orange relish.

Our Thanksgiving turkey this year has a spicy rub.

I’m responsible for the vegetables: corn and mashed potatoes.

We have some spicy gravy and turkey both to make more.

And maybe some more gravy.

Last year we had pumpkin pie from real pumpkin. This year it's sweet potato pie.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving — that’s what we’re planning.

What’s your signature dish.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. It looks like you will be having a delicious meal. I’m taking cranberry orange relish and pumpkin pie over to my sister’s house where the main dish will be ham, not turkey. Turkey just always seems a little more than we can handle – maybe at Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to you both and to your new tenant, too.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Jo and Charlie! I’ve been making the same stuffing recipe since 1984, when I found it in a Glamour magazine (I still have the tattered, torn-out page). It has currants, dried apricots, and dried cranberries in it, and I just love it!
