T-minus two weeks

The BIG DAY (and by that, I of course mean Thanksgiving) is rapidly approaching and I could not be more excited. The menu is still under development, so I have nothing to share on that front, at least for now. In the meantime, here's a hilarious picture of Wyatt in his Halloween costume (He'd be so embarrassed if he knew I was sharing this with the world):

And moving on. So, I really enjoyed plowing through all those foodie quotes a few weeks back, so I thought I'd share some Turkey Day related ones -- some heartfelt, some humorous, all relate-able. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. -- Erma Bombeck

A lot of Thanksgiving days have been ruined by not carving the turkey in the kitchen. -- Kin Hubbard

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. -- E.P. Powell

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. -- John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. -- W.J. Cameron

Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day. -- Robert Caspar Lintner

After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relatives. ― Oscar Wilde

The funny thing about Thanksgiving ,or any big meal, is that you spend 12 hours shopping for it then go home and cook,chop,braise and blanch. Then it's gone in 20 minutes and everybody lies around sort of in a sugar coma and then it takes four hours to clean it up. ― Ted Allen

America has developed a pie tradition unequivocally and unapologetically at the sweet end of the scale, and at no time is this better demonstrated than at Thanksgiving. ― Janet Clarkson

Remembering with thanks is what causes us to trust - to really believe. ― Ann Voskamp
