me: I know.
12:26 PM What are you thinking about Thanksgiving?
I mean, it's not shocking that you are.
me: So, Ashleigh and Mo and her mom will be here.
12:28 PM I know that our place is not totally conducive to entertaining a ton of people, but I thought maybe a small group of us would be pretty cozy. Do we have any other orphans?
Sean: Not sure.
12:29 PM me: Is that crazy?
I was thinking really low-key, sit on the floor casual.
Sean: And yeah, when people are over when we're cooking, it gets a little nuts.
After we've cooked, it's fine. But before and during...
me: Right, we'd have to have a lot of it done beforehand.
Which is good for Thanksgiving anyway.
Here's (obvy) the impetus for this line of thinking at all:
12:31 PM I'm going to start experimenting with making my own green bean casserole from scratch.
So, just prepare yourself to eat a lot of leftover mushroom soup and failed fried crispy onions.
12:36 PM Sean: HA HA HA!
I think sitting on the floor and eating is good.
12:40 PM me: And, I was also thinking of maybe saying fuck you to roasting a whole turkey and doing braised legs and maybe roasting a goose or something instead.
12:42 PM Sean: Hell yes!!!
It's my least fave part of it all, to be totally honest.
me: I love turkey, but I ALWAYS want dark meat.
12:43 PM Sean: Fair.
me: Which is why I was thinking of legs only.
me: One for each person, like cavemen!
12:45 PM Sean: HA!
12:46 PM Yes!
Mashers with red chile.
The bean thing.
And people can bring the rest.
me: That's what I'm thinking. Stuffing will be involved.
Sean: And I'll be drinking whiskey all day.
Sean: Ah, yes.
12:47 PM The leek bread pudding? (Dear reader - in a forthcoming entry: LEEKFEST 2010)
me: Red chile mash is all I want to eat.
Maybe a little less eggy, but YES.
Sean: HOLY FUCK, DO WANT.
