I have kind of dropped the ball on Thanksgiving posts. I mean in all honesty, I feel obligated to post about Thanksgiving. It's my first year with a blog and I feel like I need to stick with what everyone is doing...which is flooding the pages with Thanksgiving. But I HATE feeling obligated to do things, and I'm having issues really getting into Thanksgiving this year. I'm not going home, I have to work, and I am just kind of ignoring it.
But I know not everyone is. So I thought I would post some things I have found lately and see if they don't help you out a bit.
Don't want to cook? Check out Kerry Saretsky's seriouseats article HERE. Tons of great links, especially OpenTable, HERE. Sounds wonderful to me at this point in the Thanksgiving frenzy.
Deb Harkness on seriouseats posted about Thanksgiving wine HERE. I really love this article! It's simple, casual, and user friendly. I guess here I will throw out that I am obsessed with Rieslings. Appropriate or not, if I went to Thanksgiving and someone served me a glass of Riesling, I would think it was the Thanksgiving ever!
HERE is a yumsugar article on fast Thanksgiving drinks. And HERE is a short post on yumsugar about stocking up early on supplies. We are under the week mark, so you may want to glance at the article. And HERE is a yumsugar how to for pecan pie. Calorie bomb? Yes. But delicious treat? Also yes. Just do it. Or, try deep fried pumpkin pie HERE. Wow. I honest to goodness feel like I NEED that. At least allow yourself regular pumpkin pie if nothing else. Less calories, some great carotenoids, Wikipedia page HERE, and delicious.
Also, check out the Fat Dietitian, HERE. She's been a lot better about posting recipes and such than I have. Way to go FD.
