Things I Love Thursday

What I love this Thursday--Thanksgiving, of course! I think about my grandmothers a lot on this holiday--they loved to cook for the holiday. I am not even a fraction of the chef they were (I wouldn't even know how to begin cooking a turkey!). But I make a great cranberry martini...

2 ounces vodka (or gin)
1/2 ounce vermouth
1/2 ounce cranberry liquer or cranberry juice
Fresh or frozen cranberries for garnish

Pour the first 3 ingredients into a cocktail shaker
with a couple ice cubes--shake well and strain into a chilled
martini glass. Then give thanks!

I'm so thankful for all the great friends I've made through books and writing! What are you thankful for today?
