On Thanksgiving and Sweet Potatoes

On top of all the other joyful madness that occurs this time of year, in my world Thanksgiving means conjuring strange foods we eat only once a year, leaving the house to buy the one item I forgot despite multiple grocery store visits, unbuttoning my pants ’cause I ate too much, then sitting comatose on the couch watching football, spending the day with my mama and Jill, carving and brining and folding and napping and catching up, and drinking wine, and reading uninterrupted in a comfy chair for at least an hour, and some really blissful...

Two Fall Favorites

Patience is not one of my particular virtues. As evidence, I will cite my rather aggressive driving style, the way I get bossy and dictatorial with indecisive friends, the fact that I never make it to someone’s actual birthday before giving them their birthday present, my intolerance of chronic whiners, and the extreme distractedness I feel in the days leading up to a party or concert or other much-anticipated event. There are two zones of exception for my impatience, my classroom and my kitchen.  With my students, it’s easy for me to be...
