Thanksgiving miracle

I love the family Thanksgiving tradition of drinking Bloody Marys while we wait for dinner to be ready.

Thanksgiving 2008

Here's the recipe, in case you want to join the fun:

48 oz V-8 Juice
1/4 cup horseradish
10-20 Tabasco -- start with 10, and add more to taste
12 oz. Heinz Seafood Cocktail Sauce
1/4 cup Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce

Mix all together. Use celery sticks as garnish ... and jumbo green olives, too!

When Cousin Adam is the bartender, he mixes up a blend of spices to put on the rim of the glass.
He uses Old Bay seasoning or celery salt, and recommends trying the Old Bay "if you feel like rockin' out." And his suggestions for possible garnishes are a tad better than mine: shrimp, sour pickles, lemon, lime, and/or blue cheese stuffed olives.

Before the drinking begins, I'll be filling this with apples and cinnamon and other good ingredients.

And while the pie is baking, I might go for a walk to take in some of this:

Happy Thanksgiving!
