Normally I prepare a big thanksgiving dinner with friends, but this year I'm very busy so I decided to order out. I ordered the food several days in advance and Iím picking it up tonight. We're postponing the real thanksgiving meal till December. crazy

I take the day off. That's it.

Besides being revolted by essentially Christian holidays, I have no reason to go to any such trouble. What family I have alive lives several states away, I do not particularly favor turkey, and I eat as much as I can possibly hold every single day regardless.

As a kid I generally dreaded Thanksgiving. Now all those half-ass relatives and in-laws have to crowd in shoulder to shoulder with us, we must eat food of varying origin and widely varying expertise of preparation, and when it's over we'll be eating the fucking leftovers for the next week and a half until it goes bad. No thanks!

My sentiments exactly!

We've already changed our tradition with Christmas dinner and I'm working on Thanksgiving starting next year. For Christmas dinner, I let my kids pick a country and we make a cultural meal based on that country. Last year was Korea and it turned out quite good. This year is Egypt so I have to start my research now I think.

Funny because most likely my dinner tomorrow will be imported herring in horseradish sauce.

Yep and it's one of the few ways that I've found to get my fickle kids to try something new. Since it's their idea, they have to eat it!

Awww, did being editor of My book screw up your plans? Tell ya what, take the day off, get together with your friends and have a good time. It's okay, but it will use your last sick day. crossbones

I just tried this and it is simple yet fantastic! It makes approximately 6 servings.

12 oz. blackberries
3.5 oz. dark chocolate (I prefer 85%-90% cocoa content)

Melt chocolate, dip blackberries into chocolate and place on a flat surface to cool then enjoy!

This is very decadent recipe yet it contains only 7.5 grams of sugar and just over 500 calories for the entire 6 servings if you use the Lindt & Sprungli 90% cocoa chocolate bar. coopdevil

Mmm. Fruits in chocolate are delicious. smile
It's kind of tradition on Christmas in my family.
I add, some flat fruits can be put between biscuits (then of course the value of kJs increases) and put in chocolate that way. This kind of biscuits is probably the best choice (always used it), can't tell it's name in English.
Sliced banana is good for that purpose, because it is not too wet fruit and connects with the rest well.



Combination of fruits and chocolate always disappear very quickly. smile

The look like Nilla Wafers, but I guess they are probably Biscotti, which is an Italian name,but also used English. That does look delicious and I think you've inspired a bonus dessert for tomorrow. For Thanksgiving, I guess I'm thankful for Spelled Moon.:)

No, being your editor is only one thing thatís currently occupying me. Even if I wasn't doing that, Iíd still have a lot on my plate (haha, Thanksgiving humor). I think Iíll hold onto my sick day. grin
