Something I didn't even know was on my bucket list has been achieved. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner with Martha Stewart. I vow to follow the gospel of her teachings and do my very best in the remarkably less glamorous kitchen of my own home... without the luxury of magically appearing prep bowls filled by a staff of sous chefs.
As governor when I visited our troops in Kuwait and Iraq I served them Thanksgiving dinner. It was a small gesture compared to their sacrifice.
If you think about a Thanksgiving dinner it's really like making a large chicken.
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.
Strange to see how a good dinner and feasting reconciles everybody.
Dinner was made for eating not for talking.
At a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well and talk well but not too wisely.
When my mother had to get dinner for 8 she'd just make enough for 16 and only serve half.
You don't argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn't eat candy for dinner. You don't punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don't argue when a women tells you she's only making 80 cents to your dollar. It's the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.
Tell the truth work hard and come to dinner on time.
My interactions with Sorkin were agonisingly weird. He is by far the weirdest person I have ever met. I had dinner with him and a few hours before I got an e-mail from his assistant saying 'Sean this does not need to be a long conversation. Aaron is only going to use it to win your trust.'
I don't cook - I can cook - but I'm not very good. I like being asked over for dinner because she can't cook either. We would starve if it weren't for modern technology. I know how to work a microwave but love home cooked meals.
Julie Mia and I just met for a couple days doing some work but really under the guise of having fun. We do events like the Women's Sports Foundation Dinner where we get to not only do a good thing for the community but we get to hang out with one another again.
Badger hates Society and invitations and dinner and all that sort of thing.
Society is composed of two great classes those who have more dinners than appetite and those who have more appetite than dinners.
I try to greet my friends with a drink in my hand a warm smile on my face and great music in the background because that's what gets a dinner party off to a fun start.
When I take my kids out for dinner or lunch people smile at us.
I have never been so calculating as to sing some Barry White song to get a girl. But I do think it's very romantic to cook dinner and sit around the piano at night and sing together.
Dinner is a great first date. Don't believe that stuff about girls not wanting to eat on a first date - sharing a romantic meal is so sexy.
I'm into all that sappy stuff - a surprise picnic nice dinner or traveling. I'm kind of an old romantic.
I would love to have dinner with Jay-Z and Beyonce. I think we would have a lot to chat about. I like them both so much and I love them as a couple. I like that they are both at the top of their game - and that they have a mutual respect and admiration for each other.
I like to be bought flowers and taken out for dinner. I like a man to be a gentleman. I don't like to be treated as if I am brainless. I like to be respected and to give respect.
It was a very emotional dinner... Everyone shared personal stories about her and gave her words of encouragement and inspiration. Everyone tried to remain positive.
On a summer night it can be lovely to sit around outside with friends after dinner and yes read poetry to each other. Keats and Yeats will never let you down but it's differently exciting to read the work of poets who are still walking around out there.
