LaDainian Tomlinson, Thanksgiving Master Chef

It is little known that along with his football duties, star runningback LaDainian Tomlinson is quite the master of the vegetable stir fry.

Q thoroughly enjoyed the excellent Peel N Play vegetable set from his Ama and Agu today. Earlier in the day, he needed quite a bit of help to “cut” the velcroed eggplant and carrot apart, but by evening, he was wielding his toy knife with aplomb.

We also squeezed in a trip to the Wild Animal Park between vegetable slicings and had a grand Thanksgiving dinner.

I hadn’t realized how many of the bloggers I read are Canadian until the Canadian Blog Awards came about and everyone was nominated! So a note to Canadian readers today – I think you guys have it right, celebrating Thanksgiving in October. It’s better to spread out the two biggest travel-to-see your-family holidays to maximize enjoyment.

(Aside: A completely unrelated piece of trivia for Canadian friends. The best show I saw on my last trip to New York, The Drowsy Chaperone, was written and composed by Canadians. It’s the first such musical in twenty-five years to make it to Broadway from Canada, and boy, is it a blast. Returning to the Thanksgiving theme now.)

I’m grateful for so much this year, but nothing means more than my loving family. All the best to you and yours.

Love those pictures! Teach 'em how to cook young...and how to clean even younger.

Not sure how I found you, but had to say that my son has the exact same set of plastic veg! So cute!

And as a Canadian, I'll have to agree with you -- we DO have it right, celebrating Thanksgiving in October. No offense meant, so please don't take any!
