I know it’s early to be doing this, but while you’re reading this, I’m already working on my Thanksgiving dinner. Just think about it this way: if I were in Canada, I’d be a month late.

James and I don’t care about holidays. I mean, we don’t dislike them or anything, but they don’t hold any emotional weight with us, especially religious ones. When we don’t feel like doing Christmas, we skip it. We don’t do anything special (well, anything special that’s G-rated) on our birthdays or our anniversary, and I don’t remember the last time we even remembered it was Easter. So when a blogger I really like and respect asked if I would be part of a Thanksgiving blog event this Monday, I said “Sure!” Then I talked to James, and we rescheduled Thanksgiving. What the heck; we’re grateful every day anyway, and we eat a ton even without the enticement of pumpkin pie.

Every day, I’m grateful for my family, and the food we eat, and the home we have to live in. Every day, I’m thankful that I have a job and health insurance and access to cancer care. And every. Single. Day. I’m thankful for you, the people who read this and share your Mom Food stories and recipes with me. I adore you, every one of you, and I don’t say that lightly.

The menu is set (add Martinelli’s and hot apple cider to drink, and Carin’s mom’s Waldorf Salad); the kitchen is nearly clean, and first thing this morning (It’s late Friday night as I type this), I’ll get going on the turkey and stuffing and all the other lovely things my mom put on our table throughout my childhood.

I talk to mom about it every day: ask her advice, tell her what I’ve shopped for, etc. She doesn’t cook as much these days, and she enjoys the vicarious cooking. She’s also really happy about the project this dinner is for, as am I. Monday, all will be revealed.

Okay, I’m leaving you with this sneak peek of the Waldorf Salad, which Carin made last night. Tomorrow, let’s talk about stuffing, shall we?

Remember, these aren’t just people who need to get laid we’ll talk about those in a moment. Shai’s patients are struggling with real issues, from painful physical conditions Cheap Jerseys like vaginismus (an involuntary nervous clenching of the vaginal muscles) to sexual trauma. Shai talks about one client: “I felt that she was pushing the therapy process too fast, wanting to get naked on the third session. I had to explain, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.’ And by processing with the therapist and myself, she was able to understand that she felt so uncomfortable at the stage where we were just holding hands and talking [because] she was powerless, and she wanted to gain power by having sex with me.”She was rushing to Netflix and chill, when she really needed to just chill.This is the American Twist, a lot more advanced, it’s pretty tough but the idea is you’re getting the combination between slice and top spin. For top spin you’re going from six to twelve, going straight up. For slice, you’re going to be hitting that three o’clock, that right side position right cheap jerseys there. So how do I get back? All you have to do is take the mouse go to the upper right corner and move it down, you get the charms bar and there is a charm there marked start, click on it and you’re back where you want to be, there’s also a one click way to do it, which is let’s say I go to maps this time, if I go to cheap nfl jerseys the lower left corner I see a little start button appear when I’m in the corner, if I click it it takes me to the start button or the start screen. This drill can be repeated three times, once with a low ball, once with a medium one and once with a high one.Bull in the RingHave all of the players form a ring, then choose one player to stand in the middle. The coach will throw the ball to one of the players in the ring and that player must then try to run the ball across the circle.

I run The Mom Food Project, which was born out of love for my mom and a desire to preserve the recipes of my childhood, which didn't actually exist in written form until I quizzed my mom and wrote the recipes down.

  1. You are wise to know ahead of time what is going on.. and the salad looks fab!!

    I just wanted to stop by and say Hi, and that I was thinking of you! Thanks for taking the time to chat with me a BlogHerFood… I really appreciated your kindness!

    Be blessed-

  2. I’m right with you! We had ours last weekend. But that’s the first of many – we have as many thanksgiving full-on dinners as we can manage since we love it so.
    I’m eagerly waiting more news on your dishes! We’d love to try some new versions!

  3. Oh, this brings back memories. I used to always have waldorf salad on the thanksgiving and christmas menus (it was ALWAYS on them when I was growing up), but for some reason it has ‘fallen’ off. You have inspired me to put it back on this year. Sounds like a great project. Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner!
