I am finally back writing after a crazy week at work, and of course preparing our Thanksgiving Dinner.
The dinner was great! We invited a few friends over, and decided to celebrate the holiday with a little “twitch”. To begin with, we had no turkey at all. In fact, we did not have ANY traditional thanksgiving dishes (with the exception of desserts of course). Our thanksgiving dinner was a pure Middle Eastern style dinner, with lots of traditional dishes from around the middle east. Every dish was homemade, and judging by the comments from our guests, I think they really enjoyed it.
In case you are wondering what a Middle Eastern style Thanksgiving dinner is, this how the menu looked like:
- Grilled Lamb chops with special middle eastern spices
- Grilled Steaks with special middle eastern spices
- Grilled kabob (homemade)
- Homemade beef/eggplants Moussaka
- Homemade falafel
- Middle eastern salads
- Grilled pita bread.
The days before Thanksgiving I was busy completing and launching the Stephens Fitness Center SMM platform.
I have to admit that all the hard work put in organizing everything was a pure joy for me. I know it sounds geeky, but I really enjoyed working on developing the SMM platform.
If I were to give one advice to anyone who is attempting to develop and launch such a platform, it will be to really be patient. If you start rushing yourself, you will probably miss a few crucial steps on the way, which will make your final platform look incomplete, and worse, unorganized.
Overall, it was a good week to be a chef, a host, and inbound marketer.
