I’m taking a break for a quick post to wish everybody a wonderful Thanksgiving this week. Whether you are the host or the guest you have an obligation to savor the food and the day.
Hosts: I know that this week brings a frenzy of planning, cleaning, shopping, searching (for the gravy boat, recipes and table extensions), and cooking. Your guests are going to love the meal, and you already know the ones you want to join you in the kitchen to “help.” Please remember to relax and enjoy your guests.
Guests: I know you are grateful for the invitation and will show up on time, praise the cook, and follow all pertinent instructions. Please remember to enjoy yourself responsibly and prepare your list of safe conversation topics, unless you want to remembered for the years to come as “THAT” guest.
So, in order to capture the spirit of “pre-Thanksgiving” (which in many ways brings more laughs and memories that the actual holiday) here’s a “BEFORE” photo of a turkey prepped to enter the oven, a symbol of our homespun spirit.
