Mostly not turkey

At moiread's request, I have posted my chili verde recipe. For those of you who have a lot of tomatillos on hand or can get them, mostly; for some of you this will be a recipe for next summer/fall. Our plan is to see how much we miss chili verde when we've used up all the frozen tomatillo goop and then judge from there whether we'll put more tomatillo plants in the garden next year. Processing tomatillos is tedious and sticky, but the results are very satisfying.

My contributions to tomorrow's holiday meal are fairly incidental and easy to accomplish, so I am not in the turkey-induced panic some of you seem to be feeling. When I did the main dish for Thanksgiving, we had lasagna, because I don't like turkey particularly; on the other hand, I don't dislike turkey so much as to be unable to eat it for one meal (one yammy, stuffingy meal), and my grandmother really loves it. So it's just as well that Mom is willing. And we'll have lasagna Saturday night anyway, so all is well on that front.
