I mean, I've been fantasizing about it since, I don't know, July? So what the heck happened? Well, here's the thing: if you're a non-food blogging-type (in other words, a normal person), then it's fairly safe to assume that your focus is probably on the T-Day meal as a totality for ... {more please!}
