Martha Monday--Thanksgiving Hotline

From today until 6pm CST on Wednesday, Martha's radio show is hosting a Thanksgiving hotline, where you can get your Thanksgiving questions answered by Martha, Emeril, Nigella Lawson, Mario Batali and other celebrity chefs.  Get the details here.

I might call just so I can chat with Martha and invite her to Thanksgiving dinner at my house.  Since it's actually on Friday, she might be free, right?  It's worth a shot!  I'll make extra green bean casserole just in case. 

Finally, for those of us hosting people in our homes for Thanksgiving, Martha has a bunch of tips for making houseguests feel welcome and for making the stay as pleasant as possible for everyone.  Her first tip is to make these so-cute-it's-almost-nauseating pie boxes to package desserts as favors for guests. 

Isn't that too cute?!  And a project for people who obviously have some time on their hands.  I certainly strive to be a domestic goddess like Martha, but in the TMI house, any leftovers are sent home with guests in cleaned out Cool Whip containers. 

Even if Martha herself did come to Thanksgiving dinner on Friday, I would still send her home with green bean casserole in a Cool Whip container.  That's just how I roll.

leftover pie? you're joking, right? that's like leftover wedding rings, or leftover tires after a balance and rotation---THERE SHOULDN'T BE ANY LEFTOVERS! Martha has crossed the line. L

Wow, you're nice. I tell people that want leftovers that we do the BYOC method - bring your own container!
