they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

notes from thanksgiving (or the things i learned)

1. you will lose silverware in the hustle and bustle of turkey day. next time, use plastic.

2. tim's turkey gets better every year.

3. next year, don't let sister and tim take the majority of the turkey leftovers. put your foot (and your Tupperware) down.

4. do turn mashed potato leftovers into potato pancakes stuffed with brie.

5. always have pre-ground coffee for early morning thanskgiving emergencies. because something always breaks on turkey day. and it could be your coffee grinder.

6. do enjoy wine beginning at noon and ending at midnight.

7. keep your coat closet stocked with coats if you want thanksgiving guests to take a post-dinner walk around town.

8. breathe. doing that many dishes only happens once a year.

    Make your smashed taters ahead of time & nuke when needed. Also for awesome gravy use chicken broth if you don't have enough turkey juices & use brown powder gravy mix. The best!

    no recipe really, i just made it up :)

    but, it was easy. usually you bind the mashed potato mush with egg and flour, but i didn't have any. so, i put about a 1/2 inch of sesame oil in an iron skillet and then fried them until crispy on each side. that's when i placed a hunk of brie in the center of each pancake and then folded them over - to let the brie melt and get goey.
