I'm thinking like a real cook!

I'm heading up to my kids' for Thanksgiving and my first thought was, "Should I bring my knives?"

Good thinking. The answer is yes.

I bought a small rollup knife bag for just this reason. It seems that wherever I visit, I am expected to "be the chef," or I jump in (only if invited, of course) and and wind up chasing everyone else out of the kitchen. If you don't know enough to say "I'm behind you." while I'm prepping or carving or whatever, get out of the kitchen! I like my digits at ten.

I get that too on occasion, I find that Denying all Knowledge of cookery a few day before the date (and a few times whilst there) works wonders

If you're expected to help and the host does not have good knives, you are in a bind.

I have a couple of kinfe safes for when we go to Aruba every year and I take a chef's and a utility knife. The kitchen equipment there is the worst.

I really have no idea of where the festivities will be held. There is a choice of 3 homes and I don't know who is handling it this year.

Actually I know my son has ceramic knives that he picked up in Japan and he sent me one for Mother's Day. Those suckers are impressive.

Unlike me, you are thinking like a real cook.

I'm thinking - how much booze will we have to buy when we get there?
