Five things that made me happy today:

1. Cooked off and on all day. Even had to borrow pans from the Sotos because I don’t have any big ones any more.

2 The turkey was a big winner. I dry brined, which I not only have never done before, but I’ve never heard about it before.

3. The recipe was a result of following different internet trails and finding something that sounded interesting.

4. Universal acclaim — super tasty and moist. And perfectly done. Twelve of us ate almost every ounce of a 16-pounder. There might be enough left for ONE sandwich. And that’ll probably be gone before tomorrow.

5. A really nice dinner with my immediate family (minus one who was home tonight) and a cliff hanger of a Dallas Cowboys football game.

Bonus: Mañin Soto and Max helped clean up the rest of the privet out front and get it carried to the alley. Yay!!

And you? I’d love to hear what made you happy today.

Keep going.
