The first time I hosted Thanksgiving dinner, I was a wreck. You would think that years of working in restaurant kitchens would have prepared me for the big day, but it really hadn’t. I didn’t have anything I needed and I resorted to barking out orders to my family members as if they were line cooks in my restaurant. Not exactly the way I wanted to spend my day off! After the chaos had dissipated, I reflected on the day to see what went wrong. It all came down to my cooking tools, and I didn't have what I needed to get the job done.

By Elias Hazou President Nicos Anastasiades on Thursday evening briefed party leaders on his upcoming informal meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci. Speaking to reporters after the get-together at the presidential palace, government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said Monday’s meeting would be without agenda. “The dinner will have no agenda, as it is not part of negotiations.
