Got the best email ever today from ManBear S, who is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday.


I am very excited for this Thursday. I hope the feeling is mutual among all of you. Wanted to write and give you all details for the big day.

Arrive: 2:30; we’ll probably eat around 3:15; Cowboys game starts at 4:15; Texas game starts at 8 (all are welcome to stay at my place for the entire marathon, there should be plenty of beer/cocktails/leftovers)

Roasted Turkey (perhaps two of them)
Oyster Stuffing
Sausage Stuffing
The Ultimate Potato Gratin
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potatoes
Sweet Corn Bread Pudding
Cheddar / Asiago Cheese Popovers

*Notice, there are no desserts listed here. This is what I will call on everyone else to bring for the feast.  B, if you can make a chess/buttermilk pie, then I will love you forever. Also, if anyone has any dietary concerns (beyond the caloric intake) please let me know and I’ll work around them.

GASPPPPPPPPPPP HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK IS OYSTER STUFFING TELL ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my 3rd consecutive Thanksgiving with S, and I just know this will be the best one.  This year promises especially good things as S has invited over 4 of his male coworkers to join in the Thanksgiving feast.  YES.

Looks like I’m not the only one who’s in the spirit of Thanksgiving — D is too.  I love how everything revolves around pumpkin around the Thanksgiving holiday.
