Thanksgiving and Beyond

This year we had a delicious US Thanksgiving full of cakes, casseroles (family recipes, of course), and lots of turkey. Three to be exact: smoked, roasted, and deep fried. Yum. We even discovered a delicious "mock-tail" recipe. So delicious, in fact, that I thought I'd send along the recipe (and a picture of the "ice ring"!).

2 (2 liter) bottles of ginger ale, chilled
1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice, chilled
1 (64 fluid ounce) bottle white grape juice, chilled
Fruit or edible flowers

1. Make the decorative ice ring.
a) Fill a ring-shaped cake pan to 1/2 with ginger ale.
b) Freeze until partially frozen. At this stage you can place edible flowers or pieces of fruit around the ring. (Decorate to your heart's content!)
c) Fill the pan with ginger ale and freeze until solid.
d) Place in the punch bowl just before serving.
2. Combine 1 bottle of ginger ale, pineapple juice, and white grape juice, and enjoy!

So, we ate. We drank. And now ... we work out. We're on the home stretch of our fitness challenge, with only a couple of weeks to really kick it into high gear. Our luggers have until December 12 to make it across the Lug Fit Club map. Who will win? Sure, the right answer is that we've all won because we're all more fit than when we started, yada, yada, yada. ... But that competitive spirit is strong on the Lug team, and our Luggers are sure to make it a close race to the tape! We'll keep you posted!
