Taking the neurosis out of food, one meal at a time.

You've got your turkey, dressing, gravy whatever tradition, come the fourth Thursday in November.What I'm curious about, is what do you do Thanksgiving eve? Thanksgiving morn?
Years back in Brea, as a waitress at Alphy's, wearing my comely fall colors (orange skirt, thick brown waistband, white peasanty shirt, and nylons. Nylons!) I worked Thanksgiving morning. Who, I asked myself, would go out to breakfast on the morning of the feast day itself?! Our beloved neighbors, that's who, all five of them filled up the counter I was working, the very same neighbors with whom
we were later feasting. Yah, they tipped well.
Lately, up until this year we shared Thanksgiving Eve with our friends-- a simple pasta or deli dinner, rounded out by a number of bottles and laughs. This year, instead, we'll be picking up our daughter at the airport. And now I'm wondering about you. What do you do before the iconic meal? I'd love to know. Btw, have a warm and bounteous Thanksgiving~
