For me, the past few Thanksgivings have been quite different from each other:
One year I decided to prepare a full Thanksgiving meal in my tiny NYC apt kitchen. Mom repeatedly asked me the whole time if I had felt claustrophobic living in my apt. It didn’t help that with the oven on all day, it made the entire place hot as hell & super uncomfortable.
To top it off, since I own a limited number of dinnerware place settings, I had to continuously wash dishes after the appetizers and until dessert.
year, the fam & I decided to take a break from the traditional full-day-o-cookin’ and opted for a fantastic
at a fabulous
Italian resty in Midtown – complete with fresh mozzarella made at the table!
Can’t get more fresher (or easier
) than that folks
Then last year, I spent Thanksgiving day in the hospital with my mom since she had just suffered a stroke on the 22nd of Nov. Worst Thanksgiving (& year) ever…
Thanksgiving, I am hauling Midtown Pups & myself to my parents house
to spend it with them. All I have to do is – SHOW UP
Crossing my fingers that they will have the fried shrimp & ribs I requested as part of my fav additions to the traditional Turkey feast (sorry – sooo NOT a fan of Turkey!)…
And this year, I am thankful
that my mom is home & healthy and that I can spend the holiday
the way is should be spent…with my family
Midtown Girl & Midtown Pups wish you & your fabulous families a wonderful, happy & healthy Thanksgiving holiday.
Sooo thankful to have you dahlings as part of our extended family – kissies for everyone!!!
