Turkey Lurkey Doo

As soon as I receive a magazine in the mail, I turn to the most obvious page; the last one. It sets the tone for the rest of the issue. (you read magazines from the beginning?)

One my favorite sections of Bon Appetit magazine is the back page where they interview a celebrity. Sadly, a couple of years ago they eliminated my favorite question: “If you could invite anyone to your dream dinner party, who would you ask?”

So I thought I would devote this post to creating my fantasy Thanksgiving dinner guest list.

Drumroll please....

Elvis Costello – I suppose he could bring his wife
Sig Hansen – he would make crab dip
Betty Grable - hands off Elvis, you've got your own bombshell!
Little Edie Bouvier Beale – when things get dull she could perform cabaret
Frederick Law Olmsted – maybe he could give me landscaping advice
Paul McCartney – he would bring the side dishes
Louisa May Alcott – someone has to perform the post-dinner reading of “Little Women”

I think that’s a well-rounded group, don’t you think? I’d be interested to hear your choices!

Looking forward to turkey sandwiches and football tomorrow,
