Thanksgiving 2010 did not go as planned. My best friend was visiting from New York and we had grand plans and a full house for Turkey Day. But instead, both of us were couch-ridden with a particularly nasty bout of flu. What do you do when you're sick on Thanksgiving?
I did have something to be thankful for. We were already planning a collaborative, cook together Thanksgiving. While the invalids amongst us wallowed in blanket forts and tissue piles with the comfort of DayQuil, hot tea, and The Proposal
, my roommates and our guests rallied and made dinner happen. Though it was hard to let go of the control of my kitchen, I was so lucky to have people there to cook when I couldn't.
Have you ever been sick when hosting a holiday? How did it turn out?
