My second favorite holiday! Sending love your way on this great day of thanks from Los Angeles, Oceanside, Las Vegas.
If you had asked me this time last year, when I was cooking a big Thanksgiving feast for all my Scottish friends (I think I'll forever associate them with giving thanks & also my ability to cook a meal of that scale), where I thought I'd be today, a year later, I don't think I would have imagined all the places I would have gone in one year.
But I'm thankful for this past year--- it was sort of like an out of body experience.
Meanwhile, I'm off to drive down the coast to see my mom's family. Wish me luck.
For this lovely holiday, I can't think of any better pairing than food and poetry. Check out The Hungry Ear, a collection of food poems.
