What was the last thing you said thank you for/who was the last person you thanked?

Who was the last person that said thank you to you?

What are you making for Thanksgiving? 

Bonus:  Do you shop on Black Friday?  Any favorite stops?

    "Nobody was talking about ground coffee from a week ago. Do you drink coffee that's an hour old?"
    Not often, simply because 95% or more of the coffee I drink is prepared in my own kitchen in the morning, and we drink it within thirty minutes or so.  Why?

    There are household uses for used coffee grinds too. :-)

    DD1 was a barista for about 5 years.  I have got many a lecture about the proper handling of coffee.

    "Coffee loses it's aroma if it sits in a the basket overnight.. That's your experience? Sounds like cheap coffee to me." ----- LOL, no, it is not cheap coffee. I learned it in one of the restaurants where I worked. The owner strictly forbade having filled baskets of coffee sitting there. They had to be filled immediately before brewing and the coffee was always kept in the fridge. I do the same.

    Same for all the couple of different restaurants I worked in over the years.

    In my experience, most hotels and restaurants use packets of coffee, a packet is enough for one pot, that way they don't lose the flavor.

    Bord, I keep the long-term supply in the freezer (we usually get 3 lbs at a time), but keep a small can in the fridge. The can is refilled from the freezer supply.

    It seems kinda weird not to have pie, but it just didn't make sense this time around.  I consider pumpkin to be an inedible substance, and always have sweet potatoes with TG dinner, so I usually end up with the pies I really like (as in, enough to make) which are either raspberry, blackberry or lemon chess.  My brother and his SO are going to be our only guests this year ... one is allergic to both raspberries and blackberries, and the other isn't into pie at all, so I just nixed the pie idea altogether.
