Who's your turkey now?

Thanksgiving Day, aka Turkey Day. Any quick ideas on today's menu? Yes? Class?

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect..on the containment properties of thin-sliced cornbread. How high can you build a wall around your plate without it crumbling to the floor under the weight of just too much broccoli casserole?

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks..for Chinette. All the strength, none of the hot, soapy water.

Thanksgiving is a time to remember..what your feet used to look like, when you could see them from a standing, upright position.

Thanksgiving is a time for family..making sure you have enough mac'n'cheese for all those grandkids.

Thanksgiving. I am grateful for this day, for all the reasons there are to eat, and eat, and eat again.

And, then, to sleep.

  1. Funny stuff! I cooked for two days and seriously thought, "This is stupid." But I WANTED to make pies and I WANTED home made mashed potatoes, and of COURSE we HAVE to have.....all in all, a great day.
