Month: November 2011
I was out for lunch with one of my best friend’s (okay, it was my mom) and I overheard some people talking about their favorite common ‘taters. I wasn’t listening very closely but I thought it was interesting that they were having a whole conversation about potatoes. Being the overly social person that I am,
Thanksgiving is now behind us and I keep running across articles about “repurposing” your Thanksgiving dinner. This makes no sense to me. The purpose of the food is to feed you, right? So why can’t people just call the food exactly what it is…leftovers. Apparently, this is the new “buzz” word that I can’t stand.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends, family and faithful readers of my blog. I get all choked up when I start to think of things I am thankful for in my life. The challenges that are presented to me on a daily basis due to my complications of Crohn’s disease have made me view
As Thanksgiving approaches, I get kind of sentimental about thinking of all of the people in my life that make me thankful. As I am going down my list, there is one name that sticks out, Brian. Who is Brian, you ask? Well to my brother in laws disappointment, I am not talking about him
Thanksgiving is only a week away. Are you ready? Some of my readers (okay, it was only two people) have emailed and asked me to help them organize their timeline for the Super Bowl of dinners. (This is where the OCD people take out their lists and the unorganized people start to roll their eyes!)
I went to CHILL and the food was multiplying. I was losing control. ‘Cause the delicacies they were supplying were electrifying.

Choo! Choo! All aboard for the gravy train!!! Thanksgiving is in less than two weeks and there is one thing I demand be made by scratch and that is the gravy!! It is one of the easiest things to make and one of the tastiest! It can revive a dry turkey, enrich the flavorless potatoes,
In the midst of all my foodie fun, I have got to talk more about my imaginary Thanksgiving dinner. Let’s face it; the turkey is the star of the show but what about the supporting cast of characters? You know who they are….the side dishes. The side dishes don’t get enough credit for the role
Well I had a wonderful day on Saturday. What did I do, you ask? I had the opportunity to take a macaron class at the Alliance Française de Chicago. Macaron? Alliance Française de Chicago? What am I talking about? I didn’t know either of these things existed either until I received an email late last
Happy November!! I want to dedicate this month’s posts to the all-time Foodie holiday….Thanksgiving!!! The hardest part of the holiday for me is the emphasis on a big meal. I am a grazer and I like to eat all day. Sitting down to a big meal and calling it quits just doesn’t work for me.
