Nice accidental period.

Creepy as fuck now. I had a balding obese former child actor try that on me once and it made me sad

I always make the pies, homemade breads (last year I made 4 kinds!) and a few healthier veggie sides. I know not a lot of people get excited about vegetables at Thanksgiving, but I agree with the other reply that they are a good way to add some freshness to the meal, and to bulk up the plate without feeling guilty.

I love getting baby carrots with the stems attached and roasting them til mostly soft and tossing in honey or real maple syrup and something spicy like Aleppo pepper. I made a roasted cauliflower dish once that had garlic, capers, sherry vinegar, and olive oil with lots of flaky salt, and people were asking for the recipe. Frozen peas are super easy—try sauteeing a minced shallot and garlic in butter or olive oil, then add the peas and some thinly sliced basil or mint. Classic and so easy and fresh tasting. Sometimes we do spicy garlicky schezuan green beans instead of that awful gloppy casserole. Broccolini tossed in lemon and garlic. Or barely-cooked asparagus with lemon and garlic. There’s always a big green salad with a good homemade vinaigrette and lots of fresh and pickled veggies in it.

I find it quite nice to fill up 1/3 of the plate with veggies like these, then do the rest with the turkey/ham/whatever, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc.

It’s 50/50, assuming his wife doesn’t have it.
