I am so thankful Thanksgiving is over!
I had a lovely holiday, but if I never see turkey and dressing again for another year, I’ll be fine.
We had a quiet holiday at home. We made all the usual suspects (cornbread dressing, sweet potato souffle, broccoli casserole, gravy, mac n cheese). I always get a turkey breast from Honey Baked Ham. It’s the only turkey I like to eat.
There are some meats I can eat every day: chicken, lobster, shrimp, crab. But to me, eating turkey is like being at a friend’s house for dinner, and they cook something you really don’t like. You eat it to be in the spirit of the meal (or to be polite), but there is no long lasting craving for another helping.
For some reason, I just don’t like the regular turkey. It takes a lot of work and time to prepare one of those big suckers, and I just don’t care for it. Being from the South, fried turkey is a favorite. It’s ok, but honestly, I could do without the turkey and have fried chicken instead. What did the Pilgrims know?!
Mo had fun being my “assistant” in the kitchen. And Bronson chimed in by throwing mixing bowls and measuring spoons.
But, after 1 day of leftovers, I was already ordering pizza (heavy sauce and extra cheese).
However, the pecan pie, I can eat year round.
Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving. I’m eternally grateful for the unconditional love my boys give me, and the fact that I have finally found the true meaning of “Happy” Thanksgiving.
