Thanksgiving food coma: A national pastime

“The funny thing about Thanksgiving, or any huge meal, is that you spend 12 hours shopping for it and then chopping and cooking and braising and blanching.  Then it takes 20 minutes to eat it and everybody sort of sits around in a food coma, and then it takes four hours to clean it up.” – Ted Allen

Dear Ted Allen,

Whilst I agree with the majority of your statement, I find myself lying on the floor after a large holiday meal, face up and spread-eagle, contemplating life, AKA napping. Please see the above photo for reference.

Love,

A gluttonous foodie
