Thanksgiving is right around the corner: 20 days and counting!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner: 20 days and counting!

To most of us, Thanksgiving is one of the most favorite holidays of the year. Family and friends get together and pleasantly over indulge in eating and drinking. As most of you know, cooking is a hobby, an obsession and a pleasure for me. There is something very special about making everyone feel good with food.

Diane has invited a very good friend of ours over for dinner. She is a New York Transplant and we are Boston Transplants to Los Angeles and none of our family is near us.  On a side note outside of our favorite Baseball Teams rivalries, we actually get along. I will be in Red Sox Garb and she will be in Yankee GarbJ

Diane has no idea about what it takes to cook a fantastic Thanksgiving Dinner. I do and that is part of the fun and the challenge.

Two days before Thanksgiving, I must get a Grad A, extremely flavorful, very juicy and of course fresh turkey. Now where will I get it?? I like going to Trader Joes and meeting this very important requirement. I do not want to disparage Super Market Turkeys, but if you want good food you must get good ingredients.

I do not have the luxury of going to a local farm and getting a fresh free range Turkey, but Trader Joes comes close to it! I also do not have the budget of ordering from Top Chefs to deliver us a Thanksgiving Meal. Take my word that would be the easy solution, but the most expensive one too. Then again what would I do?

 Keep in mind we live in Marina Del Rey, CA and there are some super star Chefs, that could cook for us: Wolfgang Puck of Spago’s fame and the Oscar Parties and he has quite a few restaurants in Beverly Hills, Thomas Keller of the French Laundry and Bouchon’s fame has a place in Beverly Hills as well, and I could go on and on, but that would be another blog post and it would be:  the who is who of Chefs in the greater Los Angeles area.

So if you do not want to cook and create a memorable meal and day on your own, you know you can reach out to these super star chefs. I on the other hand need to start planning now between all the increased real estate activities!

Making a thanksgiving meal reminds me of, like buying a home: you need to get organized, plan, research, investigate and get the best value for your money and work hard and you will get great results!
