Channeling Martha Stewart

October 12, 2010

As a teenager I hated Martha and all she stood for. Thinking back it was probably left-over resentment from one of my dad’s girlfriends who was a little too crafty. I never was very domestic and somehow got away with basically having no chores throughout my teenage years.

I have taken an interest in cooking and entertaining.  So in an effort to channel Martha I took some inspiration from her website to set my Thanksgiving table.

    Family is advice is great. I once called home to ask if chicken is the one that you want pink inside, or was that beef? I’m a vegetarian and I was attempting to cook something for a boyfriend. I was told to stick to veggie food.
