Thanksgiving is the week in the U.S., which immediately catapults us into the "You Will Be Festive, Dammit" season of cheer, beginning with the traditional trampling of the competitors at various insane black friday sales.
Obviously, there is a high potential for both regular and holiday-related whines this week, and we are here for you! But please also feel free to share your favorite recipes, stories of amazing feasts, and the like!
And any gratitudes you'd like to share, of course! Antiwhines are always welcome.
We're going to son's girlfriend's parents' Thanksgiving, which features an abundance of family, friends, food, and dogs. It's hilarious, too, because GF's dad always invites his best friends and their families, so they pull out all these stories from high school and college, break spontaneously into song, etc.
Anyway, we're taking a savory sweet potato gratin (oh, heck -- forgot the cream) and an apple-blueberry pie. I'll make some cranberry sauce, too -- for us, they don't need more at the feast.
What's cooking with you?
