Happy Thanksgiving from Zoe Strauss

She’s serving roasted cauliflower:

Isayit'sspinach.jpgOn Thanksgiving in Seattle, a pipe froze at my house and burst, just in time for a house guest, who’s arriving from Portland in an hour or so. Fortunately, we are eating elsewhere, and there are buckets of snow in the bathroom for that homey historic touch. As Strauss wrote in her email:

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Whether you celebrate it or revile it, have
a great day filled with love.

Those in the market for gifts might consider Strauss’ America, my favorite book from 2008, already a classic but still available on Amazon for $19.77.


  1. The Artist Formerly Known as M. says

    “Lockily, they were out of broccoli.”
