    Something went terribly wrong with food in the mid-20th century. There is a website where a young woman makes mid-century meals and tests them on her husband and son.

    Meat is great and blood is the life.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.

    I hope that you eat too much today, then take a nap in front of a television upon which the Cowboys are losing. Wait, who are they playing? Crap, the Cowboys are going to win. Maybe the Lions will do okay…Report

    I was introduced to Smitten Kitchen when someone sent me a link to her Fairytale of New York cocktail (yes, she does cocktails too!) since I love all things Pogues…and bourbon. Now I go there first when looking for recipes!Report

      I have not seen that one but will look it up, @maria . Being alone with the boys means much less time for cooking so I don’t read/use her as much as I used to/would like to but she’s a staple nonetheless!Report

        … do you think you could get away with “hey, it’s time for a thanksgiving feast! Everybody gets six dino-nuggets instead of five!”?Report

          Ha! Well, Nonna cooks the holiday foods. So we’re all good there. I’m moving them towards more non-kid foods whenever possible. But with time (and to a lesser extent money) a scarce resource, cooking — even for myself — has fallen by the wayside. C’est la vie.Report

        That drink seems like a Christmas-themed Old Fashioned. Does that seem accurate?Report

          Yeah, pretty much. It works, though! My friends made the simple syrup oncoction for me last year, and my husband and I enjoyed it a lot.

          I hear you on the cooking thing. I too am trying to get my kids to eat more of the food we eat, but they are both so skinny I end up fretting about getting enough calories in them even though I know I don’t need to. I have had success with stir-frying chicken marinated in soy sauce, a little sugar, and sesame oil. I will throw in a veg I know they will eat and then see what happens. Alas they are both in the stage of preferring their veggies raw, but baby steps. Who knew feedings kids was so hard!Report
