For all my friends in the U.S., I wish you a happy Thanksgiving.
May your fat pants not become just "pants."
May your turkey be thawed on time and not necessitate a tumble in the clothes dryer.
May your relatives all have fun together—or go home early if they don't.
I'll be home, making the fun stuff (a.k.a. my super-fluffy homemade rolls, pumpkin pie, and other desserts) while my husband tackles the staples of the meal—he cooks the turkey better than I do because he likes turkey more than I do. It works well for us.
Have a wonderful weekend, don't trample Black Friday shoppers a mere twelve hours after being thankful for "everything," and give yourself some grace when you have to let out your bathrobe. That extra helping of all the dishes on the left side of the table only happens once a year.
