How to overcome a food coma

Did you go a little too heavy on the mashed and gravy yesterday? Did you really need that second slice of pie - however teensie? Did you forget to put your hand over your wine glass when someone started to pour? (In our family, it's not necessarily the host who pours: it's whoever's closest to the bottle(s).)

If you're like most Americans, you're just getting over your food coma.

Thanks to my sister Kathleen, I have the perfect antidote:

Turkey hat

Cured? I thought so. The shock alone...

The above picture is of a "sexy turkey hat" and ultra-practical tea cozy from craftsperson extra-ordinaire Angela Catirina.

Check out the holiday patterns - this is actually not the only turkey hat available. Check out the tea cozies - I particularly like the eggplant and the artichoke.

You don't have to be a knitter or a crocheter to appreciate the designs. Just wild.

And just another testimony to the creative capacity of the infinitely interesting and entertaining American economy.

Happy Day After Thanksgiving.

(And what are you doing reading a blog? You should be out exercising your right and duty as an American to go shopping.)
