Just a comment. I worked full time and my husband and I still managed for many years to host a Thanksgiving dinner for about 18 people every year. A few people brought side dishes and Mom made the pies, but we did it in a medium size suburban home. But Mitt Romney and his family, with 4 sons and their 4 wives couldn't manage to get a dinner together and instead ordered a catered meal from Boston Market? In a 3500 square foot house? And nobody had to work the day before? Just saying.

I bet Boston Market loves them! We have a friend who has two kitchens. She doesn't cook AT ALL. I mean, seriously, they go out to every lunch and every dinner. I don't even understand that.

But then her masseuse comes over at least once a week, too. But she does go out to get her hair done twice a week. I'm in a totally different class! (Thank goodness!)

Perhaps, no, obviously, they choose to celebrate Thanksgiving in a different way than you do. Appalling isn't it? Maybe their preference is to spend their time enjoying the company of family and friends rather than having the "women folk" grueling in the kitchen. Disgusting. And such high brow dining when the country is in such a financial crisis! Boston Market? What, Kroger wasn't good enough for them? "Just saying."

LOL! Hadn't heard this. Has anyone heard what Michelle cooked?

To each his own. Romney family tradition, maybe?

Note that I'm Canadian, and no great disrespect to Americans, but "Mitt" is a millionaire Harvard Lawyer who has probably never worked a day in his life, much less plannedf or cooked a meal. On the other hand, Obama gets the Marine Corps to do it for him in the White House. So its an argument over whether the taxpayers pay for it or you have to cough up the money yourself. Not terribly different in Canada. The best Stephen Harper (our prime minister) might do is show up on a campaign trail and watch his supporters do flapjacks or hot dogs...

It must be hard to be that rich and not enjoy the simple pleasure of cooking and dining with each other in the family. We are truly blessed to have our cooking facilities that we can use to create masterpieces and invite our best friends over for a get together and not feel bad about it.

Didn't really mean to get political. But the article I read said that they thought it would too much " with all the kids running around". I agree that not everyone has o have the same type of day. But a bunch of us were joking about it and I assume that people reading this do like to cook for family and friends.

They are truly people of the upper crust that would maybe have a hard time bringing themselves down to our level of living.

We always do the homemade meal. I was talking to someone recently though that said she convinced her husband to get the Boston market meal this year. She said it was way cheaper and was delicious. She said she hates to spend that much time cooking a meal. I guess it is all about what is important to you. I think for most of us, it is a labor of love. Love for our family and love of good food. To each their own I suppose.

What's gained by being judgmental of others, especially if you're happy doing your thing.

We are a good bunch of cooks on allrecipes that love what we cook and enjoy good conversation with others who share our interests together. Good comment Conky Joe.

I don't think a food website is the right place to discuss your political views (pro or con). There are plenty of those types of websites and all of the nastiness that seems to go with politics these days.
Dec. 4, 2012 4:14 am
I agree with Goodfood that a food website is better without politics, and to be honest I am more liberal than the Romneys. However, Mrs. Romney has health issues; she may have chosen to spend her energy visiting with friends and family rather than cooking. Who are we to judge?
Dec. 4, 2012 4:59 am
I agree with Goodfood. Leave politics at the door.

Some of you are really mean and catty.
Dec. 4, 2012 9:06 am
I don't think we are being mean to say this isn't a political website and we prefer it stay that way.
