This is what I’m thankful for: adventures with the family.
There’s not much I like more than cooking with my roommates and friends. I’m a lucky man to have so many great people willing to eat my food and teach me more about cooking. And as much as I love having others eat what I make, eating what others prepare for me is equally satisfying.
That being said, here’s a couple features of food graciously provided not by yours truly. Except for the stuffed squash. That was mighty good.
First up, Dougie’s baked chicken breast with sweet potato, onion, and green pepper. What a dank lunch that was.
That night (or was it the next one?) we had a feast with all the goodies we could wrestle up. Dougie’s mom’s spinach pie and her red sauce over whole wheat linguine rounded out a squash stuffed with the last of the leftover tofu vegetables from last week. And garlic bread. With bread ends. Again. Nothing fancy, but we made good use of what we had those days.
And, for all this to be possible:
A big thanks to the infinite list of people that make my life such a beautiful dream, from Mom, Dad, Bro, and Nieces to my generous handful of wonderful best friends to my mentors to my huge circle of talented comrades to my dedicated mentors to my out-of-this-world-incredible boyfriend. Seriously, I may have a lot going for me, but I would have nothing without all of you.
Okay, enough sentimentality. Go get drunk and stuff your face. ‘Cause that’s what we’re doing right now as we cook a mighty feast. Expect a turkey day review next week!
