I have a can of cranberry sauce in the fridge, so we're set. The rest is just fluff.
I will make a pot of cranberry-orange sauce. I love that stuff!
One of my favorites is cranberries with sugar and frozen fruit-- thawed in the sugar just in time all blended together-- -blackberries/raspberries. The sugar draws out the juices and the cranberries join right in. So good and low effort.

Per text blast from IL Governor,

Effective today all of Illinois enters Tier 3 Mitigation. Work from home when possible, avoid unnecessary travel, and celebrate the holidays virtually with extended family. To slow the spread of the virus, remember the 3Ws: WASH your hands, WATCH your distance an WEAR a mask. Please stay home to save lives.

We are going to mom's for thanksgiving, masks, hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap in the mud room as we walk in the back door.

Apparently the 'Rona gets extra funky after 10:00PM so Gov. Hair Gel is now mandating a curfew.
Most sheriffs here in CA publicly announced they will not enforce Gov. Hair Gel's curfew as they have more important things to do. :chili:

I've never been happier to live in this tiny, isolated desert town, 105 miles from downtown Phoenix and surrounded by 5000 square miles of silence.

The Right to Life Banquet and Silent Auction was supposed to be tonight.
Gov Hair Gel can't stop us!
The auction will be on-line and the meals came semi cooked, picked up in the parking lot behind the catering company, and the cooking finished at home in the oven (directions included.)
And everyone gets a bottle of Cru wine :D and a Nothing Bundt cake for dessert! :chili: :chili: :chili: :chili:

My corner of the San Joaquin is officially on lockdown at 1:00PM today.
We were already on lockdown, but now we're more locked down---we're locked downier? :confused:

Just heard that the time has been changed to midnight.

I haven't been going anywhere-- last night I went to pick up food and my car had trouble starting-- battery hasn't been used in a while. And as I backed out I really got the first look at our Christmas lights on the house.... we've had them up after Thanksgiving.

So... we try to help the local restaurants (and even some chains) by doing takeout but ... I suppose we're doing our part of being home bodies-- even before next lock down.

Effective today, high hospitalization areas in Texas are subject to immediate bar closures, restaurant scale-backs, and elective hospital procedures cancellations. That’s most of the populous areas in Texas.
