Too Many Cooks: We're Getting Animated

November 23, 2012

You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.

Words are good and all -- and we find ourselves using them often around here -- but what happens once we've all just cooked a Thanksgiving meal? What happens if we're too tired to articulate how we feel? Too tired for the business of word-finding, of complete sentences? 

Well, people, when that happens (or even sometimes just for fun) the team at Food52 turns to gifs. For our Too Many Cooks: Turkey Day Edition, we're answering the question: Now that Thanksgiving is over, how do you feel? Gifs only, please.

Now go on, see for yourself. 


On the other side of the spectrum, there's Kristy, doing this.

Kristen: My brother Billy and I are going to be all like this.

And here's Amanda Li, after the 4 consecutive Thanksgivings in her family.

Lindsay-Jean: I feel like I need to do 50 of these followed by 30 minutes of this (just look up). 

Michael: I'm going to look like this like this, but, inside, I'll feel like this.

Kenzi: How I will feel after we pull off a Turkey and the Community Picks, all in one day.

Karl, ever the gif overachiever: After to the all the stimulating family conversations and hard work in the kitchen I'll probably be enjoying some peace and quiet and sitting down to eat some leftovers.

After everyone leaves Merrill's house tomorrow, this is what she'll be doing. 

Brette: After Thanksgivings #1 and #2 (yup, I get 2!), I'll be like this


Gheanna: For sure the team will be feeling like this (left) after Thanksgiving season is over, but I'll be feeling like this (right) when the meal's festivities are over. 

Christina: All this food is great and all, but thank goodness the dishes are done, man.

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
