How grateful and exicted are turkeys for Thanksgiving to you think? :)...
We've rather largely lost our way, bit by bit, with a myopic fascination with food as the defining moment of what now consititues our Thanksgiving haven't we?
But, this deficit of heart is beginning to take its toll in the sensibilites of more and more people as they reflect how unfilling this holiday can end up being at the end of the day when our guests can't leave quickly enough after the food has been eaten.
I've been in some homes where the feast is more like an in-home fast food feast and in a blink of the eye the cooks are abandoned, the relationship time together goes up in a puff of tail--pipe smoke as the cars speed away to the malls. Anti-climatic, indeed!
Days of preparation. Feasting. And everyone sticking their face into their cell phones and rushing off to the nearest and biggest sale of their desires for getting something for a deal. And there the chefs and company experience an anticlimatic event.
The heart of visiting and sharing our company, stories, and being drifts away from the hearth of our homes and enters the competition for goods. Is that becomeing an unappealing feeling-experience for you... more empty, dissapointing, useless than something to celebrate and something more along the lines of a hefty investment of time with a disproprtionate return (ROI sucks)?
When the preparation far outweighs the event, it fails to excite and satisfy in the same deligthful manner. Let's visit a warm hearth together and consider ways we can return our families to a Thanksgiving that feeds our belly and our Souls!

In THINGS I DID WHEN I WAS HANGRY: Navigating a Peaceful Relationship with Food, Annie Mahon shares her journey toward a healthy and mindful relationship with food. After years of struggling with negative body image, eating disorders, and food-related anxiety, Annie tells a story we all know of growing up in a culture that constantly pressures us to be thinner while simultaneously encouraging us to eat more.
Today we’re going to talk about how to apply mindfulness practices to change the way you eat, cooks, and think about food for the better. Annie’s story serves as a guide for anyone who is searching for a healthier and more mindful relationship with eating. Her website is www.rawindfulness.com.
in Pop Culture
According to some sources, the term may have first been used in 1962 by civil rights activist and poet Amiri Baraka. 1962 was the same year that Sylvia Woods opened her now-famous Harlem restaurant Sylvia’s; today, Sylvia is known by many as “the Queen of Soul Food.” Soul food restaurants and cookbooks continued to be popular through the ’70s.
Soul food is basic, down-home cooking with its roots in the rural South. The principle staples of soul food cooking are beans, greens, cornmeal (used in cornbread, hush puppies, johnnycakes, and as a coating for fried fish), and pork. Pork has an almost limitless number of uses in soul food. Many parts of the pig are used, like pigs’ feet, ham hocks, pig ears, hog jowl, and chitlins. Pork fat is used for frying and as an ingredient in slowly-cooked greens. Sweet, cold drinks are always a favorite.
“Soul” or “Southern?”
To a lot of people, all that just sounds like a description of Southern food. The distinctions between soul and Southern are hard to make. In his 1969 Soul Food Cookbook, Bob Jeffries summed it up thusly: “While all soul food is southern food, not all southern food is ‘soul.’ Soul food cooking is an example of how really good southern Negro cooks cooked with what they had available to them.”
Soul food has its roots in slavery, when African Americans had to make do with whatever food was available to them. For the next hundred years after the abolition of slavery, most African Americans lived in poverty, so recipes continued to make use of cheaper ingredients. Of course, this isn’t entirely a black/white issue.

Hour two: Kitchology. Iris Sherman, Co-Founder and President of Kitchology
Kitchology is about overcoming food allergies through the power of technology and community. Their thesis is that 1) when food is the problem, the cook is the solution and 2) as there is power in numbers, ten cooks are stronger than just one cook. Kitchology puts cooks at the center of their design to make cooking social as a means to deal with special dietary needs. Using powerful tools, cooks plan and build recipe collections that account for food allergies/intolerances, diets, preparation time, and ingredients they love. Based on their profile, Kitchology automatically provides ingredient substitutions, integrating flavor management and nutritional content. Kitchology encourages cooks to share their insight, discover and follow other cooks “foodprints".

Host Wanda Wiedman talks about Week 7 Fantasy Football Starts and Sits.
Start quarterback Cam Newton of the Panthers against a questionable Philidelphia Eagle defense. Sit Joe Flacco of the Ravens against a strong Arizona defense. Sleeper choice is Blake Bortles of the Jaguars who play the Bills in London.
Start running back Todd Gurley of the Rams. Wanda's value pick while injured, Gurley returned in a big way. Will do well against Browns who lead the league with 887 rushing yards allowed. Sit Dion Lewis of the Patriots. Against the Jets, the run game may come to a full stop. Sleeper will be Brandon Oliver of the Chargers. Melvin Gordon has not produced well, but Oliver is making a case for himself.
Steelers wideout Martavis Bryant will score high against the Chiefs defense who have allowed more fantasy points to wide receivers. Sit Amari Cooper of the Raiders. Even though he produces high fantasy points he may be shut down by the Chargers defense. Sleeper is Willie Snead of the Saints. He has fared better than Brandin Cooks and Drew Brees loves throwing to his slot guy.
Tight end Jason Witten of the Cowboys will be interim quarterback Matt Cassel's target in the end zone. Sit Zach Ertz of the Eagles who has not seen a lot of touches and against the Panthers, that will not change.
Start Rams in defense but sit Eagles.
