Happy Thanksgiving!!


Happy Thanksgiving, dear reader!! As you can see, in my neverending (and, frankly, exhausting) quest to keep ahead of the curve, I've already had my Thanksgiving dinner: chestnut soup, sweet potato and cheesy biscuits, stuffed pork (little bit edgy, but I've already peaked on turkey this month) with all the trimmings, deeeeeeelicious French cheeses, pecan pie and persimmon pudding. And a couple of bottles of wine each. By the end of the evening, I felt thoroughly (my italics) American (no mean achievement) and went around telling everyone I was going to "bust their ass" and asking if they were "talking to me? You talking to me?." Marvellous. Actually, I should confess that it was my very first Thanksgiving dinner EVER, but I'm never one to look a four-course meal in the mouth, am I? Many thanks to Laura and Braden, the only friends I have with enough plates, knives and forks to contemplate organizing something like this (and without whom I'm sure I'd be a good 10kg lighter) and, of course, my fellow cooks/guests, for a top evening.
P.S. Rhino's TOP TV PICK OF THE WEEK: "Dirt" with Courtney Cox. LOVIN' it.

Ohhhhh I'm SOOOO jealous!! No Thanksgiving meal for me this year, I'm afraid. Actually I haven't had a real Thanksgiving dinner in, um, six years. But that's what you get when you move to France... Sometimes it passes me before I realize it, but I'm even more homesick this year than I've ever been. Thank goodness I'm going back to visit my family for New Year's -- I need an American fix! Even if it comes with some junk food...

What? Ryan is so going to kick your ass... Canadian Thanksgiving counts too.

Nardac, as always, you are completely right and I deserve to have my ass whupped!! I meant, of course, that it was my first U.S. Thanksgiving Dinner. I find it hard to imagine that anyone could top my first Canadian Thanksgiving, thanks to Ryan's way with stuffing and an 8kg bird!!

I tend to prefer the phrase "bust their balls"....

Hope your holiday was as good as the meal!

I find it hard to imagine anyone topping my turkey either -- it's in poor taste, unhygienic and almost certainly against modern SPCA and Butterball guidelines.

Perhaps it's a bit dated by this point, but I still love the phrase, "Break my foot off in your ass!"

It's all subjective of course :) HA!

Such a fancy Thanksgiving dinner, sounds/looks excellent.
