To all of my fellow Americans, happy Day Before Thanksgiving! Do you have any idea what you’re making for tomorrow?

    1. Yum! I’ve made the same casserole from Cook’s Illustrated. This year, we’re making bacon and apple stuffing, and I’m BUYING a pie. Because I’m tired already, haha.

    2. I was outvoted by my partner. He wants traditional green bean casserole and I wanted Alton Brown’s…maybe we should have a casserole off. I would totally win. Not that it’s a competition. (It’s a competition.)

    1. Oh yeah, he only eats the canned. I make the fresh cranberry for the rest of us. Though, after a few drinks I have been known to scoop out a few bites from that can myself….it’s a fascinating substance.

  1. Was laid off and my car died on the same damn day (as in, really, totally dead) so I am staying in the city for Thanksgiving because I can’t afford a trip to see my family and even if I could I don’t have a car to drive there. Which is okay by me, honestly. I have plans with a good friend and his friends whom I’ve never met but I expect it’ll be good times. I love meeting new people and there will be food and booze and I’ll probably be baked off my ass so what’s not to love?!

    Then on Saturday I’ll be going to another dinner with some really good friends of mine and I’m REALLY looking forward to that. I’ve been a total depressed mess so it’ll be good to spend some time with people I love. Family isn’t just blood.

    Hoping to visit the fam for Christmas, although I hate Christmas (but I do love my family!), but if that doesn’t work out, I do have alternate plans with a really great gal friend of mine. So either way I’ll be set.

    The reason I love Thanksgiving so much is because it’s just a time to get together with family (not just blood family) and enjoy a great meal together.

    1. Hey! You’re a badass, marilove. The world needs more people like you in it. That’s some shit luck you got lately. Hang in there, though. Hang in and hang on.

      I really hope you had a good Holiday. And I hope even more things start going your way. And once they do, I hope they never stop!
