What are you doing tonight? My Thanksgiving Eve’s used to consist of all my friends piling into a car driven by one of our parents and getting dropped off at our local bar for drinks on the “biggest party night of the year” (and yes, we got picked up by the same parent. We were all well into our 20s. Safety first?). This year…well, things have definitely changed. I’m hosting Thanksgiving for 12 adults. Oh yeah, and I have a small child which means I don’t have time to be hungover ever again. Hah. Today is going to be a marathon of cooking and prepping and brining. My hope is that tomorrow will involve SOME relaxation, but as host, I feel like that expectation is usually a little inflated….
I’m going out on a limb today. I think the limb is sturdy, though. Hopefully you agree.
If you know me well, you know that my favorite snack of all time is Cheez-it crackers. I cannot resist them. In fact, I have banned them from my house because I will eat an ENTIRE box (yes, really) in a single sitting. And I’m damn stingy about it! I actually say “I don’t want to share” out loud when I’m eating Cheez-its (something I normally only say internally, hah). I’m convinced that they are sprinkled with crack….
