Okay. It's almost Thanksgiving and you might be freaking out. It's probably because of people like us, who've thrown recipes for this one meal at you for the past few weeks like it was the last meal any of us would ever eat. Now, we'd like to apologize for that and recommend that you take a few deep breaths and remember it's just dinner. And, if by some outside chance that doesn't work, you should watch this video of Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg making mashed potatoes together.
This video is certainly not new -- this magical moment showed up on the internet in 2008 -- but it still has valuable Thanksgiving truths to teach us.
Thanksgiving dinner is a time of notorious tension between families and other loved ones. Have a brother-in-law who makes you want to climb the walls? Does your mother make you want to lie down on the floor and cover your ears? Just think of Martha and Snoop: if this unlikely duo can get along, world Thanksgiving peace is totally possible. Afraid you'll screw up the mashed potatoes or burn the turkey? Just think of Martha and Snoop: he poured a little cognac into his mashed potatoes and she didn't lose her damn mind. Your mashed potatoes are going to be awesome.
Above all, we hope you guys eat some awesome food this year and have a fantastic Thanksgiving. One more deep breath. Now, let's eat.
