Happy Thanksgiving ... have a cranberry in Marsala wine on me

I am up to my earlobes in yams, pumpkin, citrus salt, sausage stuffing, maple glazed carrots and there's a turkey in there somewhere. Rock 'n roll is blaring and I couldn't be happier. But I needed a pause - to say Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
I figured out how to make cranberry sauce Italian - Marsala wine! Cooked it in sugared-Marsala with Pom syrup and pomegranates. The jewel-like recipe is here (in case you hadn't decided yet!). May you be well-fed, well-loved and warm. Happy Thanksgiving!
