It's hell when cooking gets in the way of cooking!
So as we all begin preparing our feasts -- or traveling to our feasts -- I leave you with the following, from Charles Dickens:
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Indeed. Happy Thanksgiving!
(Special thanks to Alex, who brought this Dickens quotation to my attention earlier this week.)
