We had a Thanksgiving potluck at work yesterday. There is so much pressure associated with this kind of thing!! I always have these visions of impressing everyone with my culinary skills (b/c I can cook, wellllll, at least follow a recipe, I swear!!), but usually just end up bringing a bag of chips. This was our very first potluck double pressure.

So, I'm off to Seattle on Friday. It's my first trip there. I've been dreaming of going since my Nirvana grunge days ;) Yes, I had those. Didn't everyone in 1995?

I also had Thanksgiving dinner sprung on me on Monday. I'm making my first ever...sort of last minute. Hardly enough time to thaw the dang turkey!!

Needless to say, I have a lot going on this week.  I did manage to do a little better than a bag of chips, but certainly no mindblowing culinary feats. :)

My big contribution? Cream cheese. On a paper plate(made from recycled material!!). Dump homade (brand) chili sauce over the top. Stick knife in it. Serve with crackers. :P Actually wasn't bad.

Cooking my FIRST turkey (and probably last---not big on the meat thing lately) today. Fingers crossed!!

I am eternally thankful for the silly stress of having TOO much food to cook when so many have so little, for my wonderful and supportive friends that are always up for whatever, for my loving family who I am blessed to be very close with and my fiance without whom I would be lost.

  1. Yum! I like the idea of cream cheese on a paper plate for potluck. Definitely looks better than the big bowl of rice (?) that someone else brought.
