i can’t think about food, I can’t write about food and I can’t eat anymore food…sorry, you’re on your own today!
take a break and check out: Thekitchn.com Turkey-Shaped Food to Add Some Humor to Your Holiday it’s great!!
Dear Ask Mom, it has been a particularly rough year and I don’t think that I can celebrate the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. What should I do?
Since you are writing to me you must be doing better than many, many, many people. Go volunteer at a homeless shelter or battered woman’s shelter or go read stories to kids in a hospital. You’ll see in a minute how much you have to be thankful for. Hopefully it will change your attitude and maybe your life. If you wrote to me expecting sympathy, you made a big mistake.
Mom, every year at the last minute a couple of friends or acquaintances tell me that they have no where to go for Thanksgiving. Is this a hint to invite them? I don’t have a big place and a couple more people really makes a difference. What should I do?
I don’t think it matters how last minute the conversation is, you do what you would want someone to do to you. The food or amount of room you have or lack thereof is not the point…if you can help someone not be alone on Thanksgiving do it!
If you are always eating on the run here’s an easy cook and eat on the run breakfast, lunch or dinner that’s very good- Spanish fried eggs
To make a Spanish fried egg: Heat about 1/4 inch of olive oil in a very small, heavy skillet. Heat over medium-high heat until very hot; it should just be beginning to smoke. Crack an egg into a cup or mug. When the oil is hot enough, carefully slip the egg into the oil and immediately turn the heat down to medium-low. Spoon the hot oil over the egg as it cooks. Cook for no more than a minute and a half then take the pan off the heat and remove the egg with a slotted spoon.
Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh pepper and enjoy immediately with a hunk of fresh bread-it will keep you running longer…
