  1. I’ve got my turkey brining away, most everything is done, actually, for the first time since I’ve been cooking the dinner. It’s the way I wanted it this year. Saw a quote in this year’s Denver Post section last week: “Because the truth is, Thanksgiving isn’t about the food. It’s about time around the table with the people you love most. This year, make it special by keeping it simple.”

    I mean, yeah, it’s about the food, too, but the past few years it’s just been a lot of work, and different cooking times, etc. I figured I’d want as much of it done as possible so I didn’t have to mess with it and just enjoy the day.

    I hope you enjoy it and your family too. Sounds like you’re well on your way. :)

  2. Wooo, AG, you can do it! Don’t let those nay-sayers get you down- party hard Thanksgiving style.

  3. Oooh… I can’t wait to see how it goes. All the best to you and your family on Turkey Day!!

    (I’ll keep my fingers crossed on the turkey.)

  4. Oh, you poor boy! I’m exhausted after making enough of one dish for an entire week–I can’t imagine how exhausted you must be.

    I hope that you get to taste all the great food that you worked so hard to make and that you enjoy the time with your family.

    Happy Thanksgiving! :)
