How’s everyone enjoying their Thanksgiving week? We’ll be dining with one of Chet’s colleague’s family tomorrow, and the rest of the week I’m hoping to avoid the holiday shopping crazed crowds! We’re planning to get out of dodge completely on Black Friday and relax by Biscayne Bay. The weather in South Florida is perfect right now for just chilling outside for hours at a time. I can imagine the breeze by the water is going to be bliss. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of friends, family and food! And here are some links to celebrate this short week…

Have you been listening to Serial? This chart made me laugh. I love that “actually pretty good at lacrosse” falls in the “stoner” category. So true.

Anywho, what are your plans for Thanksgiving? I’ve been promoting the holiday (and all it’s signature dishes) for the past month, so whatever the day brings I know it will be ending with a big glass of wine and a relieved farewell! On to Christmas! Have a wonderful Wednesday and a truly happy Thanksgiving, and here are some links for your enjoyment…
