Another year, another mid-day GrubHub Thanksgiving soiree. That’s great and all – truly great, believe me – but how am I supposed to get anything done from here on out? If it weren’t for the Daily Grub calling my name, I’d be down for the count.
Here’s the gist – The Goddess & Grocer delivers a couple turkeys – none of that dry, flaky trash that will be passed around as turkey on tables nationwide next week; this is the real deal – tender, moist and all-around delightful. The GrubHub crew then cobbles together the remaining traditional favorites. Director of Sales on mashed potatoes, Corporate Council on candied yams, CEO on conversation-starting adorable toddler. The only thing lacking is the food-pushing grandmother telling us all to get some seconds.
We gather round the hodgepodge of furniture, give thanks for that amazing run ABC’s TGIF lineup put together in the early ‘90s (Dinosaurs!), and then get down to business. Knock out the first round, knock out the second, sit slack-jawed for half an hour, and then indulge in dessert.
And unlike presumably every other potluck in the whole of human history – everything here is freaking great. From the awful-sounding-but-mind-bogglingly delicious pineapple stuffing to the ridiculously good rice casserole to the Knox Blox. Knox Blox, people – that’s an unbranded Jell-O Jiggler. How can an unbranded Jell-O Jiggler be delicious? I don’t know. All I know is that I need another one. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go scare up a Jiggler, and enjoy the rest of my Friday.
