turkey or takeout
It's kind of a different year, huh? A different holiday season coming up? Understatement.
So how are you handling it?
The "should I buy a 20 lb turkey or order takeout (again)".
Will the table be full or will it turn into "a big lunch on Thursday"?
We are way scaled back this year in my home so I'm adjusting my expectations and my plan for the holiday meal. The one that I usually take days to make, boiling the chestnuts on Tuesday, setting the table on Wednesday, getting a sub for my yoga class on Thursday, as I prep, peel, chop, cook & bake all morning long.
Hmmmm, not this year.
If you have a hard time with handling the unknown, this situation may be wearing on you as it repeats itself month after month.
So what are you going to do about it?
Because that's the bigger question here. Not what happens to you, but what do you do about it?
Can you let your shoulders drop?
Can you maybe, secretly, enjoy the possibility of a "quiet" holiday?
Can you get creative with how you'll spend the day? The long weekend?
Can you make a different plan for the next and final(!!!) 6 weeks of the year?
All subject to change, of course:)
For traditions sake, I am sending you my Cleaned Up Holiday Recipes,
hoping that you make something for yourself, your family, your friends or whoever you spend time with in the coming weeks.
