It was just going to be The Mister and I this year so I was down in the dumps on Thanksgiving morning until I saw this trending on Twitter. I hadn't thought about it in years. It really lifted my spirits and took me back to a time before I had pandemics to worry about and children to miss. I must have had Alexa play it for five hours straight while I cooked one of everything in the house.
That's no easy task in a kitchen that still looks like this. The Mister and I get all fired up about finishing the remodel from time to time and then we think about it for a while and change our minds.
I have always started our Thanksgiving cook-a-thon with chocolate chip cookies for breakfast while we watch the parade. You can see that didn't turn out very well this year. That's what I get for being distracted making soup stock. I did get a batch to turn out later and then froze the rest of the dough.
This sad little collection is what I thought dinner was going to be last week but then I relented and did a last minute pick up of fresh things on Wednesday.
As usual my pick up order was a big surprise. I got the biggest ham I have ever cooked and two rotten sweet potatoes. Everything else was fine. I even got a chicken to roast for the kitties.
After a family Zoom I climbed into bed with a piece of pumpkin pie and Planes, Trains and Automobiles. It wasn't really a Thanksgiving to remember but it certainly was one I'll never forget.
