Here's a recipe for scalloped potato gratin... Ingredients 1 1/2 cups heavy cream 1 sprig fresh thyme 2 garlic cloves, chopped 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Butter 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for broiling Directions Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a saucepan, heat up the cream with a sprig of thyme, chopped garlic and nutmeg. While cream is heating up, butter a casserole dish. Place a layer of potato in an overlapping pattern and season with salt and pepper. Remove cream from heat, then pour a little over the potatoes. Top with some grated Parmesan. Make 2 more layers. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle some more Parmesan and broil until cheese browns, about 5 minutes. Enjoy!

RECIPE IN TWO PARTS PART I A psychic recipe good for re-balancing family-wide mood shifts at holiday times. If you live long enough, and have a large family, you will likely discover holidays starting with Thanksgiving, sometimes yield a sense of foreboding, as though you are about to once again, lead the family through a mine-field, where lovable Uncle Joe's drinking, sweet Aunt Millie's menopause, dear Nephew's unemployment, or Dad's dumb business mishap, create high-tension households where one misstep cascades anxiety filled hours for nearly everyone present. There seems to be a recipe most important to follow: Flavor: Add milk of human kindness (tastes like the non-alcoholic "Southern Comfort Egg Nog" sometimes in Safeway) “Is there a peculiar flavour in what you sprinkle from your torch?” asked Scrooge. “There is. My own.” “Would it apply to any kind of dinner on this day?” asked Scrooge. “To any kindly given. To a poor one most.” “Why to a poor one most?” asked Scrooge. “Because it needs it most.”

PART II Marinate Yourself along with all House Guests first: Drain all negatives out of yourself and each willing guest physically, taking special care of each guest. Draining techniques --- any one of which seems sufficient: ----- Go to Lake Del Valle at 8:00 am and take a two hour kayak ride $20 per boat http://tinyurl.com/88j7f9u ----- Host Thanksgiving out-of-town in a place everyone likes to be --- rent a convenient beach house for the entire gang. Then let the ocean do the draining work for each one on their own. ----- A 2-hour, two way walk out and back, through Sycamore Park http://tinyurl.com/7lk24fr ----- Take the up-hill walk off Arroyo Road parking lot to the loan Oak Tree overlooking Lake Del Valle on the North End of Lake. http://tinyurl.com/7hd4yvn ----- Walk along the creek trails from the Rodeo Grounds to Stanley Blvd and back. http://tinyurl.com/7vcead9 ----- Visit the Vets at Livermore Veterans Hospital http://tinyurl.com/8aykyss -- hold their hands -- you don't need to say anything. In fact, you probably won't be able to speak. Then settle in and eat your meal together. It usually works. Be careful not to over bake. Pass The Love --- http://youtu.be/r_YOG3jMlV4
