Geek Out: Thanksgiving Shtuff

November 24, 2010

I generally dislike Thanksgiving on a very primal level. As in, every single thing inside of me hates Thanksgiving. I love giving thanks. I love the food. I hate the cannibalism that sometimes affects my family (and many, many others) that includes symptoms such as: Bragging about the year’s accomplishments in such a way that put others down, laughing at the weakest link of the year’s expense…I know, it sounds like a lovely holiday, doesn’t it?

I do love certain parts about Thanksgiving. Spending the entire day with my mom, which doesn’t happen often enough. Learning a few recipes a little better than last year. Spending the week preparing with my mah, cooking desserts, pie crust from scratch…and what not.

But because most people don’t hate Thanksgiving, I’ll share a few Thanksgiving inspired posts that inspired me recently.

Liz’s “Thankful” post. Read it.

    What an awesome compilation! I love your round-ups. Enjoy spending time with your mama and enjoy that pie with homemade crust (yes, that is jealousy in my type).
