Lily Allen is getting through Thanksgiving prep despite the seasonal cold

Let’s get one thing straight: if there’s one sprawling metropolis that singer Lily Allen can lay claim to, it’s the UK.

Sure, Lily now lives with her family in a brown stone in New York City. Yes, she’s embraced sobriety and now practices Reformer Pilates with a view of the New York skyline, and (according to her Instagram photo dumps) she may have instituted a no-nonsense daily diet regimen. In other words, it is increasing very New York wellness vibes.
But one artist who, in her Ode to Her Hometown (2006), rhymed “fighting with Tesco bags” with “I think that means al fresco”. LDN – cracker)? Come on.

Londoners – the native, the grown up, the later – will not readily accept that Lily comes anywhere near a (Metro) card with New Yorker on it.

And yet, a glance through Lil’s latest Instagram stories suggests she’s bracing herself for the “holiday” season in her adopted homeland.

In a series of Instagram Stories posted Wednesday night, she shared her preparations for Thanksgiving dinner. She shared pictures of the stuffing, trifle and cranberry sauce – all homemade. This was alongside something called “Stove Top Stuffing Mix,” which she describes as “an abomination,” but one that her actor husband, David Harbor (you might recognize him from Stranger Things), seems to like.

Even more impressive is that Lily is leaning into local traditions and moving forward while feeling rather sleazy thanks to some unnamed winter lurgies.

“I’m so sick of whatever this virus is going around,” she wrote. “But try to do as much preparation as possible.”

“Not even sure why, we’re not even Americans and it’s just me and my kids and they don’t give a fuck,” Lily continued.

She then displayed a touch of humor that we’ll follow this side of the Atlantic, quipping, “Anyway, stuffing done.”

In later IG Stories, Lily wrote, “You know it’s serious when you put the loo roll to bed”.

Our (also quite sniffling) sympathy. A later post features Lily’s adorable kitten purring on her lap – so hopefully she’ll get some much-needed rest before it’s time to make the turkey.

And if you celebrate this weekend? Let it be well with you!
