Basic Training: Yams, Cranberries and Turkey–Oh My!

By Nina Kaufman, Esq.

The only training going on today is the training for my stomach to expand past all reasonable girth.  I’m staring down not one, but two holiday meals–the blessing (and curse) of having parents and in-laws in close proximity. Close, but not close enough for the families to come together for one meal . . . and besides, with more than 20 in my husband’s family alone (his mother, sisters, their spouses/significant others and kids), there simply isn’t room. 

So on this holiday of thanksgiving, I give thanks to all of you Making It Legal readers and your quest for knowledge. I’m also giving thanks to the inventor of pants with elasticized waists.  🙂
