On Thanksgiving, most people find themselves with family, sitting around a table piled high with homemade holiday treats. Thereís fresh, seasoned turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, candied sweet potatoes, green beans, apple pie and so much more. Except in my house that only happens if we opt for the Thanksgiving Dinner for 6 from Fairway Market. So is life in a house sans cook.
Itís that time of year again and while Iím looking forward to some family time and a feast a la supermarket, I canít help but to dream of what the ideal holiday dinner might be like. Iím most thankful for my family, but maybe just once, I'd like to put together a traditional Thanksgiving and then invite someone else. This year I'm changing it up and inviting my personal dream team of movie characters who most influenced my life in 2009. Celebrate Thanksgiving the way it should be, with homemade eats, a little entertainment and even some Hollywood clean-up assistance.
