So you might know that my parents like to change things up sometimes. You might also know that they aren’t the worlds biggest fans of turkey. This led them to cooking thanksgiving with inspiration from the flavors of India in 2010 (deemed “Indian Thanksgiving 2010”) and then to forgo turkey for fish last year (“Salmon Thanksgiving 2011”). This year was going to be “Kimchi and Empanadas Thanksgiving 2012” but I was flaked out on making empanadas and there wasn’t much room on the table for kimchi. So we had regular Thanksgiving, meaning Grisha painted the house all day, while I played with kitchen supplies in my pajamas , and the guest of honor, Galen, my parents friends corgi, sniffed out the Old Fashions my dad mixed up for everyone.
