This Thanksgiving

I could spin a heartwarming tale, but that’s already been done. Instead, I’ll stick to the cold, hard facts.

I am thankful for the everyday vegetable peeler. Because if such an implement didn’t exist, prepping ten pounds of potatoes would wind up a bloody mess.

Instead of just a mess.

We’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, and the gathering is going to be a little more intimate than in years past. Hence, out goes the 23+ pounder and in comes the 15’er…

Shrinkage is not so much a result of the number of mouths being fed as the host’s ongoing propensity to hoard leftovers.

I’d disclose the double-super-top-secret recipe but nobody returned their confidentiality agreement – for those without security clearances I can say it involves lots of paprika, oranges, onions, and honey. The preparation process for the mashers, however, is not classified – once you’ve completed the squashing, make sure to add in a brick of cream cheese and an ample supply of sour cream. Finish with finely hand-diced garlic, lightly sprinkled while churning.

And don’t forget to bring dessert!

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
