And Happy Halloween! Hope you all have on your scariest masks today! I'm sure you do!
As the holiday season approacheth, I think we should discuss a very important topic. Namely, you've been taken in by all the "Holiday" advertising and, now, you don't know what to do with all those Forkin' cranberries you purchased.
I mean, really, no one in your family likes cranberry sauce anyway. Yet, you still went out and bought the 5 pound bag from Costco ("It was on sale," you say ... secretly knowing that it was on sale b/c no one in his right mind buys that many cranberries).
Fortunately, you read this blog. And I'm going to share with you a few ideas on how to use All Those Extra Forkin' Cranberries*:
Idea #1: COMPOST.
Idea #2: Pasta Sauce ...
Saute some onions, garlic, and mushrooms in olive oil.
Add chopped zucchini, cranberries, a can of diced tomato, and ... well, hello Chef's Little Helper.
Simmer. That popping sound you hear? That would be the cranberries bursting forth with their juicy tart goodness.
Idea #3: Cranberry Orange Infused Vodka ...
Cranberries + Orange zest + Vodka + about 1 week = YUM (hopefully)

*Which is very generous, considering VUBOQ's uncle (on his mother's side) died in a Horrible Cranberry Harvesting Accident** a few years ago.
**I'm serious. He had a heart attack. It was very sad. VUBOQ had to cut short his vacation in Las Vegas.
