Chats on the Farmhouse Porch

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!
