SYBIL'S THANKSGIVING HOSTESS "DOs & DON'Ts!!!" .......

Thanksgiving Director (1020).jpg

....... Ladies! If your husband has invited over his boss and the wife.... or maybe some fussy in-laws, it's YOUR job to select a cuisine that covers everybody's dietary needs and whims! Is Aunt Cornelia on the left a fruitarian?....Maybe a "Boston Bananas Foster" is her idea of a main course! And what about nice Mr. Hekoki there in the middle from the office? He might want to have an "Eastern" influence for his Thanksgiving.... maybe wild rice stuffing with daikon radish shavings and tofu! ... with tonkatsu sweet potatoes!! And isn't that Uncle Herb on the right? Is he a football-all-day-with-a-drumstick type??...Well what could please a true meat-eater more than a Toledo-sized "turducken". Ask your local butcher for the jumbo portion of that new-fangled Holiday entree.....perhaps he has special chicken, duck, and turkey specimens from Chernobyl or Three Mile Island!...or even Fukushima!!! ...and remember that many guests may be lactose intolerant (no cheeses or ice cream!), or even vegans (no cheeses, ice cream, deviled eggs, or honey!!) ...whatever the case, it's up to you as the hostess to make everyone at your Thanksgiving table feel welcome...and grateful! You'll have every one of your Pilgrims yelling "Yay!"..and "YUM!"...and “私にもっとサツマイモをくれ!!!”…
