Cranberry Orange Cornmeal Cake and a Storm

This is a perfect recipe for Thanksgiving.  It makes a wonderful dense, moist cake with terrific Thanksgiving flavors.
 You can find the recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2010/11/cranberry-orange-cornmeal-cake-recipe.html 
Zest the oranges before squeezing.

 The link will give you directions for a single recipe, double it to make a 10 X 13.

 Make sure to sprinkle the top with 1/3 cup of sugar before baking.

 It gives it a nice crunch when it is done baking.

 I like to refrigerate it to make it even denser.

 We have a big storm on the way.

 I shoveled a couple Teddy paths at 4:00 am this morning and it has come down consistently since then.  The heavy stuff hasn't even started yet.  We could get up to 10 inches.  Perfect thanksgiving weather...perfect me weather!!!
