For Amara and others that are over Turkey on Thanksgiving, I am here to tell you that Lasagna is THE perfect holiday food. You make it a day or two ahead. Clean the kitchen. Then the day of, just add bread and salad. It will feed lots of people and/or lots of leftovers and pretty much everyone likes it. The timing is very unfussy as far as cooking, reheating and getting to the table, which I think is essential for holiday foods.
Next year, I am not going to volunteer to do as much. There is this convention that I have been attending/volunteering for that happens every Thanksgiving weekend. There is a big job that one woman has always done. Last year she was doing the martyr act and whining so much that I said "Fine, I will do it next year." I said that mainly because I decided I'd rather do it than hear more whining. She continued to whine. I did it. It was horrible. Then I also did the thing that I normally do. Then a friend asked if I'd lead the Sparkling Wine taste, and well, It was Sparkling Wine! So, I did that too. Wayyyyy too much. Bronchitis not, probably as a result.
