To all the amazing men and women who decided to make some incredible sacrifices to be the best Thanksgiving chefs ever, this post is dedicated to you. You’re the real MVPs. I mean you guys prepare a menu a month in advance, go to war in those crowded grocery stores and cook your ass off for days, simply to feed your greedy families. And as one of the members of the greedy committee, I must bow and say humbly, THANK YOU! Somehow, year after year, you just kill the cooking game with all that fat, cholesterol, salt and sugar and manage to not actually kill us. If that’s not a miracle from God, then I don’t know what is.
So on behalf of us, greedy folks, I am so sorry for our impatience at times. I know we are like…
Please know that we are only this out of control because we KNOW that your food is about to hit our souls in a very special way; and we just get teased by all those wonderful smells. There is also that other reason that is truly all of our faults but we always take out on you. Sorry about that. We just don’t eat breakfast. It’s like we don’t believe in that essential first meal of the day on Thanksgiving because we want to make even more room for your delicious dinner. It’s all about you at the end of the day. So I would say take it as a compliment when we have a nervous breakdown about the inevitable wait. It’s all love, L.O.V.E.
And when we all leave and take as much food as possible, then you get to enjoy your leftovers. And you can do so much with them! I’m sure my boy, Kevin Curry a.k.a. Fit Men Cook may have some ideas that you would be interested in. You can watch below and get inspired to cook a little more for us…I mean for yourselves. Whatever you’d like. It’s your world. We are just happily living in it. 🙂
