If you're reading this and you aren't aware today is Thanksgiving, you might be in for a rude awakening.
But for those of you who haven't left the kitchen in hours, today is the day your hard work pays off. Soon enough, you'll be enjoying the cranberry sauce, Brussels sprouts, gravy, mashed potatoes, and turkey (or delicious vegetarian alternative) you've been stressing over all week. And guess what? We promise that none of those cooking disasters will matter one bit after you sit down at the table.
So let's take a minute to appreciate all the hard work you've done this week preparing for the big day. And don't worry if Thanksgiving snuck up on you this year. Get started right now and there still might be time to make a last-minute feast -- or to dial up your favorite take-out restaurant.
