The great bird itself is the most unnerving part if you’re roasting one for the first time, or if you only do it once per year and can’t remember the details.A frozen turkey is what nearly everyone buys, but the thawing process is time-consuming and potentially hazardous.Once you get the turkey and the dressing in the oven, the next thing to make is the two-ingredient cranberry sauce, which will have plenty of time to set up in the fridge: post has a recipe for a tart-style crust that complements the creamy filling and is much simpler to get right than traditional pastry pie crust.Besides some form of sweet potato (this menu has simple baked ones), nearly every Thanksgiving menu I’ve seen includes the ubiquitous green bean casserole.Frankly, I think that successful women holding out for more successful men is as counterproductive as wealthy men doing the same thing – which, as you might have notice, they don’t.I would love your thoughts on whether women should continue to hold out for men who make more – with these two caveats: 1) Please don’t accuse me of being sexist for making the observation that most women want a man to outearn them. 2) Please don’t accuse me of encouraging women to date deadbeat slackers with no money, no ambition and tons of credit card debt. Just as I say you can compromise on chemistry – from a 10 to a 7 – I’m simply wondering aloud why a woman with her own money can’t date a man who makes K, the exact same way a man with his own money can date a woman who makes K.And yes, that also means a post on cooking a frozen turkey without thawing it first.Nonetheless, it can be done, with everything homemade and tasty, and without going either broke or insane.
I’d think that at this stage of life (late 50s) a year or two (or 10) hardly matters.I think we can all agree that dating is an embarrassing tangle of awkward attraction mixed with the overwhelming hope that a few hours could possibly turn into something meaningful, something passionate, something that isn’t a complete bore. Since we are currently living in the age of hookup culture, where casual sexual encounters are encouraged and long-term commitment doesn’t necessarily always play a role, traditional dating is a rarity. For a self-sufficient, high-earning man, a woman’s earning potential carries very little weight. Because we have always been taught that nobody is going to pay our way in life.This gives men the freedom to choose a partner based on what matters most – character, kindness, fun, humor, compatibility – as opposed to mere earning potential. So why do women treat being high-earners like it’s a curse?
