    You ever forget to cook something? Twice now I have done that. This year was the rolls.
    Sometimes we forget something. Yesterday it was only the olives, but I remembered where the ladies forgot.

    All my buddies and I do all the cooking(or almost all) for our respective families. Most chicks don't know greasy goodness and they should be out making their 77%.

    My family divvies up the cooking. Wife makes pies, I usually do the turkey, oysters and beans, sister sweet potatoes, mom cranberries and stuffed celery and a couple pies. Every year is different.

    My wife is a coowner of a restaurant and some days is sick at looking at food. That is where I come in. We split our cooking about 50/50 or so.

    Last night I made a reduction of frozen tomato's from last summers garden, cooked until thick with salt, pepper and olive oil - umami!. Also cooked greens from the garden, rapini, turnips and mustards with olive oil and sardine paste. Blackened some bee liner fillets and ate the whole mess over a bed of cheesy grits!

    I do all the cooking period. Yes this year about 10 minutes before the beef wellington was done, i realized i forgot the creamed spinach. The wife and daughter had been monopolizing the kitchen backing cookies and stuff while i was watching it and my mind wandered. Still came out good but i had to be quick.

    The communist one. Civilization.

    It's actually a pretty neat place and their model is a coop. They pay a living wage and motivated workers buy in as owners and get profit dividends.
