i am looking over the holiday division of power, and i'm not sure the scales of justice are evenly weighted.

NKK: roasting a turkey. Perhaps making a dressing.
JEK: roasting garlic, boiling, etc and finally mashing potatoes (mr quayle?), stringing beans, making gravy, making cranberry chutney.

of course, they're hosting the thing. But, for some unknown reason, I am always ready to keel over before the food is served.....

Hmm.

Cleaning house, setting table, making sure there is room in dishwasher, buying flowers, making sure there is clean towels in the bathroom.

Oy.

I would skip the garlic and embrace potatoes without anything else.

My mom is doing everything. I am merely providing a clean house, silver, ernest and flowers.

Actually, I lied. I am going to roast the turkey. Its really just a big chicken when you think about it.

We'll toast the K-Ks tomorrow with a nice local pinot.

i can't skip the garlic, it has been requested.

as for the rest, well, there are people hired to do the cleaning. And don't think there's no help around the house.

Love the Quayle reference...although I'd guess he'd go with "potatai".

another winner from z! I am stealing that. Potatai. It's wonderful.

And i'm not really grumbling about the cooking. I'm just stunned that it took me so long to figure out why I always look so wrecked in the thanksgiving pictures. It's because I've been scrambling!

PS: i don't even eat half the things I prepare for this meal. But they're "tradition."

Am I the only person in the world that hates garlic mashed potati?

i have a feeling you are.
some plain mashed potatai are always set aside for the invalids, children, and picky eaters, and I'm sure they'd share. Warning, i do use buttermilk.

Oh yeah, PS...I have to admit I stole "potatai" from an old Shelley Berman album where he referenced "stewardai" - that was the funniest thing I have ever heard!
