A quick nip into Patrice's warm kitchen. Maybe some of those snacks that she had for her staff and volunteers are still there, but it's late in the evening. I am often the last one to arrive at the chat!
If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, what are you looking forward to most on Thursday?
I am looking forward to running a 4-mile "turkey-trot" with Chuck and my step-daughter, Kaitie. Sunny California, flat and at sea-level. What could be finer than that?
My favorite Thanksgiving dish is stuffing. Hands down. Just give me a big ol' plate of it with gravy, and I don't need no stinkin' turkey.
Do you ever go through periods of time when you get hooked on a specific food?
No, that never happens to me. Unless you count Honey-Nut Cheerios. That has been my favorite breakfast (the breakfast of THIS champion) for about 15 years. I actually get up in the morning and think, "Oh, goody! Time for my O's!"
What's the best stuffing for a turkey?
I love all of them, in all of their wet-bread glory. But a great stuffing would have apples, walnuts and dried apricot.
When you were a child, were you ever in a Thanksgiving play, pageant, mock pilgrim dinner, or anything different to celebrate?
No. Boring childhood. I watched Charlie Brown do all that in his Thanksgiving Special, though.
Next entry from Santa Barbara! Yay!
