I am thankful for cool weather and sunshine. I am thankful for the booming laughs when my family is together. I am thankful for football and how many games we will watch in the next few days. I am thankful for the few heroic leaves that cling to the trees while the rest lay in a colorful heap beneath. I am thankful for the Christmas music and movies that are just waiting to be enjoyed. I am thankful for wonderful food and people with which to share it. And especially this morning, I am grateful for new and delicious experiments!
Orange Cranberry Sauce (recipe adapted from Julia Child via A Kitchen Muse)
- 1-12 oz. bag cranberries, washed and picked over
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- zest of 1 orange
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Wash and pick over cranberries, and place in a large sauce pan with other ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until cranberries burst, about 10 minutes. Cool and serve.
Cranberries are just so darn pretty.
