Thanksgiving

  • I’ve always looked at those pictures from the all-gay cruises and thought, “I wish they had these when I was younger.” The ads are all filled with guys with perfect bodies, perfect abs, perfect pecs, and perfect, unlined faces and, let’s just say I’m not any of those. 

  • Sometimes the only thing you want to make for Thanksgiving is a reservation. If you prefer not to slave over a hot oven, there are a number of options, at all price points, for dining out. Do your own version of the Turkey Trot and head to one of these places for a hassle-free Thanksgiving dinner.

  • I wouldn’t say my family was trailer trash, we never actually lived in a trailer, but my mother sure cooked like we were. She had every cookbook put out by a food company. Campbell’s, Kraft, Birdseye, Betty Crocker. Her cookbook shelf was like a directory of Fortune 500 companies. Her “secret” chocolate cake recipe was a box of Duncan Hine’s mix and a can of Campbell’s tomato soup.

  • (CNN) -- If you're heading to the Northeast for Thanksgiving, you might want to get an early start.

  • On this Thanksgiving, I want to thank you, the SFGN readers and advertisers.

  • A few weeks ago, I wrote a column suggesting some alternative ideas for Thanksgiving, both places to dine out and restaurants that were offering entire meals to go. If you prefer not to cook, there’s another option; prepared holiday meals from grocery stores. Most chains now offer entire Thanksgiving meals which can be picked up fully-cooked and merely heated up before serving. Here’s a run-down on what’s available locally. Most require little more than 24-hours-notice. If you snoozed and didn’t order in time for Thanksgiving, they’re also available for Christmas or New Year’s Day. The prices indicated are for packages that serve 6-8, unless otherwise noted.

  • For many of us, Thanksgiving will be the first time in a year and a half that we’ll be able to gather with family and friends for a traditional holiday.

  • It may be hard to come up with a reason to give thanks for the “blessings” of 2020.
