Tom & I have been staying in NYC for Thanksgiving for the past few years. We've been flying Kyle out here & cooking for him & our friends. This year we are not cooking or flying Kyle here. We leave for Costa Rica Saturday at 5 a.m. so, it doesn't make sense to make a big turkey dinner. We won't be home to eat the leftovers. We were going out to dinner until my friend Roxanne invited us to her house. She has what she calls an orphan Thanksgiving. She invites people who don't have any other place to go or don't want to travel. She is going to let me set the table & put together the centerpiece. I'm psyched. I'm also going to make my Aunt Maria's cheesecake cause the crust didn't come out right the last time I made it. I'm going to pass on some of our favorite Turkey Day recipes to you throughout the week.
