    That only works when the "guests" understand that they are guests and don't imagine they can cook every bit as good as a former professional.

    OK, you have a more serious problem then: your guests simply don't want you to cook, and worse, they think they can do it better.

    That's a serious problem. It's beyond my pay grade to solve that problem.

    Speaking as a current professional, I'm pretty much the opposite when it comes to home/holiday meals. I like it when others want to cook or bring something and I don't assume it won't be as good as what I would do. Basically the only real difference between a professional cook and a good home cook (regarding just the actual cooking) is timing, speed and consistency. Remove the need for those factors and there's nothing preventing a home cook from cooking just as well as a professional.

    But I understand what you're saying. At work, it can be a difficult thing for me to relinquish control. If I didn't have the outlet of doing it all day almost every day at work, I may be less laid back with it at home.

    But they make your poop red! So if you ate some peas at the same time, you could make a seasonal splash.

    Happy Thanksgiving! Dinner will be turkey, dressing, smashed taters, gravy, rolls, pumpkin pie, and a salad. Pretty basic today as it's just 4 of us and 4 dogs.

    I ran 3.3 miles on the treadmill, heading out for 20 miles on the fat bike, then the turkey will go on the grill. The biking is always a great time to clear the mind and reflect on what there is to be thankful for. Most of us are very fortunate in the grand scheme of things, and we take it for granted. Have a great day everyone who celebrates it!

    I like turkey. The rest of the family likes ham. So this year we’re going to do a beef brisket in the crockpot for 11 hours or so...
