Didn’t get an invite to your friend’s Thanksgiving this year?
If you’ve waited an entire month for your friends to extend an invite to their family Thanksgiving table but alas are still plan-free this entire weekend – you can have some solace in not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner
Perhaps The Cooking Junket is a little bitter, or perhaps just looking at the glass half full this Thanksgiving but hey, we see the bright side to every dinner drama and here’s our top reasons why you should be thankful for not having a Thanksgiving party to go to this year
If you’re a gym-freak, you should be thankful for not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner because:
According to the Calorie Control Centre, an average person consumes approximately 4,500 calories in just one Thanksgiving dinner – whoa! That’s 3000 calories for the meal and 1,500 calories on snacks.
If you’re not a meat-person, you should be thankful for not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner because:
If you’re a vegetarian, Thanksgiving is probably a huge issue for you when that giant bird gently is placed right in front of you – do you run or just smile politely? This is why vegetarians should be thankful for not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner. Especially with the Avian Bird flu outbreak in the mid west, you probably should rejoice in the fact that you don’t have to stuff your face with infested bird. The fact that ‘experts’ are saying that the bird shortage should not affect Thanksgiving crops because they are already frozen and shipped out is even more worrisome – what happened to eating fresh is best ?
If you’re a meat person,
you should be thankful for not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner because:
Your friends may just be vegetarian, flexitarian, vegan or whatever is trending right now… so you might find yourself eating a basin of processed meat errhhhh!
If your friends are not great cooks, you should be thankful for not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner because:
There’s nothing worse than pretending to enjoy a meal that your friend affectionately made you, despite it tasting pretty horrible. A classic example, Ms. Bridget Jones and her blue soup or the classic fork toss from Christmas Vacation… love it!
If you’re an enviro-nerd, you should be thankful for not being invited to a Thanksgiving dinner because:
The Cooking Junket loves pie, apple, pumpkin, berry, pecan… bring it on says The Cooking Junket but if the world is going to be dead because there are no sweet potatoes…just to make sweet potato pies for Thanksgiving – we really have to put a picket fence to stop eating sweet potatoes and save the world.
We thought of some other nifty pies to help fill the void… what about Taro pie from Taiwan or Cassava Pie from Vietnman? C’mon… a pie is a pie right?
Hey – if McDonald’s can do it – so can you
