It's Turkey Time! Time to dirty up every dish in the house after making countless trips to the grocery store for forgotten cans of cranberry sauce or your third box of butter. A day to slave away in a warm kitchen while the rest of your family enjoys a beautiful sunny 75 degree perfect day out back with a mimosa.
Not this year. This year we're saying screw all that business, we want to drink mimosas on a patio, too. Let's go out to eat and let someone else worry about all the shopping, cooking and clean up!
