Mamacita says: I love Thanksgiving. Sexist though it may sound, it usually takes a woman to fully comprehend what goes on in the kitchen before all that wonderful food appears on the table. I have several male friends who know, too. Painter Doris Lee portrays it beautifully, and some things haven’t changed all that much since a holiday kitchen looked a lot like this one.
Preparing large meals for a crowd is one of my favorite things in all the world to do. I need to buy a boarding house. The more I think about it, the more I think that would be just the life for me.
Every dinner would be like a Thanksgiving dinner: a crowd of people around the table, conversation, and company.
I think I need to get out more.
I like planning the meal, and even eating the meal, but prepping and cooking all of that food? nah. I’m getting to the age where I would much rather have someone else do the heavy lifting.
