Ladies, this LC thread needs a little more LC in it Just found out we're having an early Thanksgiving potluck at work Nov 1st, anyone have thoughts on a not-too-difficult vegetarian dish I could make? I could cop out and donate $ for drinks or something but that's kinda lame

re: **TWSS LC Chatter Thread**

I mean Thanksgiving always needs mashed potatoes.

I do a thing where you boil the potatoes, then when they are done mash them then mix them in a baking dish with salt, pepper, butter, cheese (romano or parmesan work very well here but you could use others) and cover with bread crumbs. Heat through in oven until the bread crumbs are toasted.

If you use garlic when you boil the potatoes you have garlic cheesy mashed potatoes. It's ridiculously simple but pretty tasty, and definitely vegetarian. And you need potatoes for Thanksgiving. Unless you are one of those yam people.

Can I like both??

Idk, I guess I had kind of assumed the basics (turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes) would be handled by the organizers since there are ~90 people invited to this thing and I'm sure several will just pitch in cash and let them handle it. I guess I should try and get clarification or at least see if there's some kind of sign up sheet to organize it. Odds are I will be hosting thanksgiving this year for my family anyways tho so I'm definitely going to try that out either way!

Don't laugh at my noob questions pls but do you mean like Panko breadcrumbs or do you make your own?

re: **TWSS LC Chatter Thread**

Either is fine. You can do it without breadcrumbs at all, it's just a nice textural contrast.

Every Thanksgiving I go back to this great list of simple dishes that Mark Bittman ran in the 2009 New York Times. There are about 20 recipes that I like most, but it's still fun to get inspired.

And it was sad to see that omahahahahaha (now banned) differentiated genders in that thread by saying that helping a disabled woman is significantly more acceptable than a disabled man. So I don't blame you for the "let's pile-on post". Assistance by need is more appropriate. Having a milder case of CP, I am on the fence on what I would want him to do. If I can do it myself, it's not necessary for him to help me. But him standing there waiting for me to do it myself (as he described in the thread) would be awkward as hell too. In that case, I'd probably just rather him help me.

Unfortunately, I struggled with that issue lately on airplanes. Airplanes don't believe in adequate space for anyone, except maybe children. Last flight was to Disneyland/Vegas, and I tried to retrieve my overhead bag from a few rows back. Someone politely stepped in to help me because i was struggling a bit. My g/f and I had a 9-day trip ahead of us and didn't want to pay a checked bag fee, so our bags were packed to the max. I obviously appreciated the help at the surface, but at the same time felt a little crappy that I couldn't do it myself without risking smacking someone in the head.

I guess it's hard for someone who doesn't have this experience to be able to truly empathize. I get offered help from time to time because a) I'm female, and b) I'm short enough that sometimes I struggle with reaching object up high (airplane bins, grocery store shelves, etc.).

I guess there's always a tinge of embarrassment but honestly if I'm struggling for whatever reason I always accept graciously. I don't feel less than in any way just because I don't crack 5'3" and this impedes certain things. What I was younger I'd bristle more (where the **** is my growth spurt yo!) but it is what it is.

At any rate I don't think the vast majority offering help to people (short people, lady people, disabled people, w/e) are doing so to take anything away from the person they are offering to help, but because it seems like common courtesy to them, even if it doesn't always feel as such to the person being offered the help.

Been doing some reminiscing & such as I near 10k (official) posts on 2+2, & one of the things that I'm most proud of is being part of this forum.

Been really nice watching it grow, and hopefully it will continue to flourish in the future.

Thanks everyone

I've been really good! Had a few ****ty jobs and few ****ty boyfriends but overall it's been a good crazy few years!

I studied wine at the start of last year so I'm now a qualified sommelier (wtf random I know) which took me to live and work in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia on an island resort (worst thing ever don't ever do it haha its like being in jail). That is probably the most interesting thing I have done. I am back at home now studying again, I've finally stopped procrastinating and I'm finishing my finance degree. And trying to poker. Trying.

Here have a pretty picture
