Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and please, please, please don’t freak out over it. Remember:

  • It’s just a big dinner like any other.
  • You’ve got all day to cook.
  • If your turkey isn’t cooked enough, throw it back in the oven.
  • If it’s too cooked then, well, that’s what gravy’s for.

Be grateful for the friends and family you get to spent time with. Be grateful you have enough food to eat. And if you’re feeling a particular surfeit of gratitude, consider sharing some of it with the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

And we all have neighbors who are alone and would love an invite or a dinner delivered to their house. Many people are shy to say they’ll be alone — so reach out.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

“If your turkey isn’t cooked enough,” that’s why God created restaurants!

Happy Thanksgiving.
