Thanksgiving Questions, ASKED AND ANSWERED
because there is nothing I love more than telling you what to do
Welcome to A Newsletter! Thank you for being here. If you’ve found your way over by some miracle but are not yet subscribed, let me help you with that:
Hello! While tragically, sadly and unfortunately there will not be a Home Movies Spectacular this year, I of course could not stay away from what is arguably my favorite time of year to dispense advice and cook salty foods I would otherwise never cook.
I ran out of Instagram filters to be amused by, so we made a real Q+A video for your endless rewatching pleasure. Questions such as “Turkey, do I have to?” (no) “Thoughts on wine?” (I love the stuff) and a shockingly high number of questions related to….camping on Thanksgiving?
There will also be an ongoing thread available to all paid subscribers, going out in a separate email today.
If you ask me, those threads are truly one of the best places on the internet to ask and answer questions specific questions about recipes and other holiday-cooking related needs. Because all of you are so smart, it’s an excellent, safe place to ask and answer. Thank you for keeping this little corner of the internet so useful, wholesome and FUN, while the rest of it burns down around us.
YOUR MENU NEEDS
A Thanksgiving menu is a highly personalized thing that nobody can decide for you. That said, I DO love to tell people what to do (see above). Fueled by your most popular questions (Do I have a Macaroni and Cheese recipe? Someone to decide which, if any, potato dish you should make. The best stuffing recipe. A turkey that’s not a roasted turkey? Green Bean Casserole— can it be good?) I’ve compiled a menu of sorts—a few new recipes, some old recipes that I am convinced can’t be improved upon, and very specific ideas of what makes A Very Good Thanksgiving Dinner.
here’s where you subscribe so you don’t miss that email on Thursday
There will also be one early dessert drop from my next book, Sweet Enough, because I essentially developed it for this specific holiday. It’s a Caramelized Maple Tart— for those of us who enjoy something custardy and autumnal but perhaps do not enjoy pumpkin pie, a thing that is not that good.
Is this week a little late to be publishing that kind of content? Who cares anymore, I’m a last minute person and maybe you are, too. See you Thursday!
