This holiday, I totally did NOT wait until the last minute to decide I'm making a turkey, then spend all of Thanksgiving Eve submitting said turkey to cold water baths just to thaw it out in time.
No way, I never procrastinate like that!
I also did NOT
make the most perfectly delicious Martha Stewart turkey, basted in white wine and butter, to just turn around and stuff it with boring, pre-made stuffing cubes that only liberal servings of gravy will save. And I most certainly did NOT feel guilty about it when my mother-in-law discussed how she made what was probably a very delicious and complex stuffing with apples and cranberries for their holiday meal. Le sigh.
And I subsequently did NOT feel bad about feeling guilty over something so silly and little! Because I have two little kids, one of whom is not even 6 months old yet and totally unable to help bathe a frozen turkey at 30 minute intervals.
