Give thanks, for real.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
It might be my favorite holiday since cooking is truly a meditation for me. I get to cook a whole bunch of stuff that's as complicated or as simple as I want. Giant meat birds, greens, mashed things, Mama's carrot soup (oh my freakin' god that soup is good!), bread things... I get to make tried and true recipes and also complete exeriments and try them on friends and loved ones, this year I also added a handful of cashew nuts and dried crandberries to the stuffing.... note to self: do that again!

Give thanks for the fact you can be online, maybe even eat a huge thanksgiving spread too. There are people starving... to death. Not to be morbid or anything, but perspective isn't morbid to me. Know what's important.

Sometime between now and Christmas.... try and give something back. Volunteer, give a homeless person a $5 bill and a Power Bar, donate to your favorite charity, leave a huge tip... do SOMETHING!!!
