Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

Snapshots from the Week


Hey guys! I hope you had a great week and are enjoying your weekend so far.🙂 I'm a bit late on this post, because I had to rest yesterday. That's what I get for thinking I could go from my simple physical therapy workout to 40 planks and pikes and 20 side planks without some consequences. I did however recover well enough to enjoy a date with my husband last night, and we've enjoyed some time off this week as well.

We had a very nice midweek lunch at Lassalle's downtown Tulsa. I really need to do a separate post on that place. It's so amazing for several reasons, like their pralines! Last night we had Pei Wei before our movie date. It's another favorite, especially whenever we're in a hurry and don't have time for a restaurant with wait time. If you like sushi, you absolutely must try their Kun Pao Shrimp Roll. It's so amazing that I actually finished my food before Ken, which very rarely happens as I'm the world's slowest eater.

After dinner we saw The Circle. It's getting mixed reviews, but we both thoroughly enjoyed it. It's the type of movie that gets your head spinning and sparks conversation long after. And despite some of the reviews, it isn't about just one aspect of the right privacy or the social world or communication or accountability. It's about all of those things, and it displays both the pros and cons of both sides of each of those issues. One of my favorite parts was after Emma Watson's character goes live 24/7 and says to her followers, as she brushes her teeth, that if they're watching and enjoying it, she's worried about them. There were much more deep parts of the film I'd love to address, but hey, it's Saturday morning...I've got my coffee, the rain is pitter-pattering against our bedroom window. So time to wrap this up and enjoy the weekend with my love.💕
