The Ultimate Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet

default-image

The countdown begins: Nine more days until that ultimate holiday, Thanksgiving. That means it's about eight days before I typically start preparing (I'm a big procrastinator). The day before, I'm usually frantically running around to buy pie from the Little Pie Company or get a box of my all-time favorite cookies—the chunky coconut—from Birdbath Bakery to take to my family in Boston. (Unlike me, they usually have everything cooked and beautifully prepared in advance.) For those earnest planners, F&W offers an amazingly thorough Ultimate Thanksgiving Guide packed with fantastic recipes, menus and an excellent slideshow section. For those like me, I offer another resource: F&W's How To Fake It/How To Make It Guide, my compilation of top restaurants and food shops around the country that will offer Thanksgiving dishes for pick-up. Maybe this year, I'll vary from my dessert theme and surprise my family by bringing a pit-smoked turkey from Hill Country with me on the Bolt Bus.
