Post Thanksgiving Food Coma
It was a Thanksgiving smörgåsbord! I’ve enough leftovers today (Sunday) to feed a small third world nation. Seriously. I’m staying away from turkey or any type of turkey product for at least a month.
Tonight’s dinner – a warm bowl of farina.
What ever happened to the simple pleasure of thankfulness that supposedly marks this day? I found a lot of comfort food and football but little reflection on what we are thankful for in our lives.
When are we thankful for what we have right now? Next year, instead of two turkeys, stuffing for atleast 5 turkeys, a dozen side dishes, an endless supply of potatoes and finally desserts too numerous to count. Oh, I did forget the hors d’oeuvre pre dinner? My bad. How about a more flavorful yet pared down menu with an extra large serving of thankfulness.
Sound dishy to you?
