It’s that time of year again! I love to think about Thanksgiving abstractly, but usually, I run out of time and don’t get nearly as much done as I’d like. Still, it’s nice to dream, right?
Here’s what the Thanksgiving of my dreams would look like:
The Entertainment: Christmas music on the record player, the Macy’s parade on silent in the background, a couple brisk walks
Appetizers: cheese plate, fried ravioli, Italian bread (with olive oil)
Main dish: I’m a fan of dark meat, so I’d be fine with a couple turkey legs. It’s all about the sides for me!
Sides: stuffing, wild rice, really fresh green beans, fluffy mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce (canned AND fresh), Parker house rolls, potato salad
Drinks: so much wine, vodka and cranberry juice cocktails (not to be confused with cosmopolitans)
Dessert: pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream, Jell-o mould (it’s a family tradition), apple pie
Midnight Snack: a cold turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce sandwich!
