Inhale pink...exhale blue...
And again, deeeeeep breaths and repeat to yourself over and over, "It's only a meal. It's only a meal. It's only a meal."
Even some of the most experienced and skillful hosts we know are showing signs of pre-Thanksgiving stress, posting Facebook status updates detailing obsessive preparation, and calling guests to confirm, re-confirm, then re-re-confirm the dishes they're bringing - almost down to the ounce.
We've been doing our darndest to make folks less stressed about holiday hosting, but are beginning to suspect that some folks delight in the drama.
And remember – we'll be live-blogging from Wednesday evening through Thursday mealtime, offering kitchen and hosting advice or offering a supportive shoulder and a laugh if you need it. Just leave a note in the comments or reach out on Twitter @eatocracy and we'll do our best to help you keep calm and carry on.
