Thanksgiving Dinner

I know . . . it's way to early to start thinking about Thanksgiving and planning the menu. But I just received the Thanksgiving issue of Bon Appetit -- the one issue that I look forward to all year. There is just something about Thanksgiving that I absolutely adore. Or, perhaps it is a combination of everything: the food, the tradition, family. For me it is the ultimate comfort day. I don't mind the work in the kitchen, the planning, or the clean up. I truly love everything about it.

So, when I opened the mailbox and saw Bon Appetit with a beautiful Thanksgiving plate on the cover I sighed with joy. I will spend hours leafing through the pages, coming up with a variety of menus before finally settling on one that will deeply satisfy. That's what I call comfort.

I feel the same way. I love to plan the meal, and all that goes along with setting the perfect scene. I actually have my Thanksgiving cocktail already chosen.

I love reading all the recipes, doing the mix and match until I'm certain I have the right combination.

Thanksgiving is great because it's all about the meal and eating it with friends and family. Christmas is all about the presents with a fat ham thrown in...I love Thanksgiving and i'll be anxious to hear what you plan. I'm actually going cranberry picking to make my own sauce (welcome to New England ;) )
