I'm sure this doesn't surprise you, but I love when people - usually news anchors or school administrators - develop instant nostalgia. You know... the way people talk about something that happened yesterday or maybe the day before with such awe and reverence that you start to question yourself and your lack of concern over that same, fairly insignificant event.
The Gosselins: Where are they now?
(Personally... I'd watch that special. I know it hasn't even been a week since their finale on Monday, but I miss them.)
Anyway, I'm already getting nostalgic about yesterday's Thanksgiving meal. It was... really quite good. I blame the chef.
Literally, my Thanksgiving meal was made by a friend who is a former executive and then restaurant chef.
The most moist, delicious, roast turkey I've ever had.
Also on the plate: roasted root vegetables, garlicky asparagus, melt-in-your-mouth onion, creamy mashed potatoes, and baked squash. Not pictured: amazing gravy made from reduced drippings, and cranberry pear relish spiked with orange Stoli.
Luckily, my nostalgia will be calmed a bit when I eat my plate of leftovers tonight.
And stay tuned for dessert. You can look forward to a better picture (and an explanation) of this guy...
And his awkwardly portioned friends.
What'd you eat yesterday? Thanksgiving or not... I'm just curious.
