Happy Thanksgiving!!!

   All around the US of A today, people are cooking. The same thing is going on at our house. I'm doing a Tuscan style pork loin in a mustard crust roasted on a bed of fresh herb branches, polenta in clay with a porcini mushroom ragout, green beans and pearl onions sauteed with my own home cured bacon, a pear and arugula salad with shaved Parmesan cheese, those biscuits, Muhummara and flatbread and a Beehive Cake for dessert. 
   Many people like to cook and eat and watch football today. At our house it's a little bit different.
 Today is the National Dog Show direct from Philadelphia.
Patsy has been glued to the TV all morning. After all She is a former show dog... Best Bitch at the Phoenix Dog Show 2006....Best Bitch at the Rogue River Valley Dog Show 2006. 
Here is Patsy "standing pretty" with her handler... (this was before we knew her) back in the day. Here's Patsy now as she awaits Thanksgiving dinner.
 Even though the glory days are behind her and she only sometimes "stands pretty," she has a lot to be thankful for today... and so do we.
