Food For Thought

My husband and I are going to my brother and sister-in-law's house for Thanksgiving this year. There will only be four of us for dinner but it seems like we're cooking for the other 30 people who might show up.

We've decided on a Southwest theme which, I admit, is a few years behind the foodie trends. Three years ago, we would have been hip and trendy with our menu choice. Now it's like we're dressing our turkey in a leisure suit.

But it'll be good dammit so who cares what our culinary peers think!

By 6 PM on Thursday-- or 7 depending on how many Manhattans we drink-- we'll be dining on salted roast turkey with with chipotle glaze and carmelized onion gravy, mashed sweet potatoes with chipotles, mashed yukon gold potatoes with carmelized onions and sage, corn bread and chorizo stuffing, green beans, popovers and pumpkin mousse with whipped cream.

Oh, you can bet this GERD girl is going take Prilosec! (And there will be plenty of Lactaid pills for the men.)

Oops, I think I just drooled on my keyboard.
