Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.
Last year, I started a new tradition and had some friends over for Pizza on Thanksgiving (TM).
Everyone loves pizza, right? And it's way less stressful and overwhelming to make than a turkey, especially if you're a single person.
Pizza on Thanksgiving (TM) doesn't pretend to be a traditional thanksgiving dinner, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on what made thanksgiving great when I was a kid, and that was being a kid with a lot of cousins around, good food, and fun. (Even that wasn't without its conflicts, however, since as a girl, I was expected to be all dressed up, and dressed up meant I didn't get to go outside and play football with the boy cousins.) Instead, Pizza on Thanksgiving (TM) is about sharing a relaxed, informal meal with friends
We make adult pizza, so not the overloaded saucy pizza of kidness. Instead, we've got a variety of choices, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, a crumbly goat cheese, basil, oregano (both fresh), quartered artichoke hearts, olives, and mushrooms. We'll see what folks want to do with the different pies.
Now if I can get some grading done, my weekend will be much better!
