"A good meal is like a present, and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for yourself allows you to be strange or decadent or both. The chances of you liking what you made are high, but if it winds up being disgusting, you can always throw it away and order a pizza; no one will ever know." (Jenni Ferrari-Adler)

Thanksgiving 2010

Holiday season is finally here and all of a sudden invitations start flooding your email box to the point you'll be triple-shifting 5 nights a week in order to keep up with the social agenda... because you know.... out of sight out of mind, and you don't want your friends to delete you from their Facebook page if you don't show up.... worse yet.... how would life be if you are not tagged in any of the pictures?

This is also double scores for those of us living the single life..... we get to eat for free at our family/married friend's house for 1 month! Yessssss!!!! And as long as you can endure some of the derogatory comments about how you are getting older, and how these are hard times, and how you should just settle for some loser douche bag, because you know.... its really hard out there and you are not getting any  younger...., than I promise, you'll be fine! Just mentally repeat to yourself "free booze, doggy bag" again "free booze, doggy bag". 

Well this year the joke was on me and my sister, as our mom will be out of town the week before thanksgiving and the 2 of us will have to organize and cook for 20 people.  Thank God mom will make it back to take care of the turkey hehehehe. Turkey the real true time consuming pain  in the ass this year will be courtesy of the Kosher market YEY! 

T. and I are pretty good in the division of labor. She bakes cakes and desserts, i'm encharged of all savory sides and vegetarian dishes and of picking up the wine.

As soon as we get the whole menu down i'll be posting it here.

How exciting!!!! forget accounting this is what i should be doing for a living! I love partying!


  1. Partying...eu fico farta da época de festas onde há jantares todos os dias com pessoas diferentes. Acho que sou caseira de mais!

  2. Eu adoro sobretudo organizar as coisas e preparar a comida. thangsgiving aqui e como o natal em portugal toda a gente esta no espirito. O natal aqui e uma seca.

    Mas concordo contigo, depois de um mes inteiro de festas (alias 1 mes e meio pq para mim ja comecou a semana passada..... depois n podes ver ninguem pela frente :D so apetece ficar enroladas no sofa com um belo de um livro e uma mantinha.
