Doggy Bag: Perfection is Overrated
Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Baked for Thanksgiving: Civil Eats' Paula Crossfield goes poking around the New York Times, and comes up with Mark Bittman, who on Sunday invited readers to take a massive bong hit tomorrow and just relax. Okay, we're embroidering with the bong hit, But, in a plea for readers to cook in advance and just chillax (and reheat) on Thanksgiving, Bittman did write this:
So, cooks: Say "Om," and pretend the situation is reversed. You are going to your cousin's, your mother's, your sister-in-law's, your best friend's. These are people you love, you're happy to have been invited, and you're looking forward to gorging, perhaps drinking too much, yelling across the table, laughing out loud. This is the spirit in which most of your guests will be arriving. They're glad you're cooking for them, and they're rooting for you. Forget your fears, relax, and enjoy it. It doesn't have to be perfect to be good.Maybe we weren't wrong about that bong hit?
