Thanks - I'm so excited. This is my meal: tofurkey, yam-pecan bake, mashed potatoes, turnip, Brussels sprouts, gravy, cranberry sauce, and cranberry-pumpkin cookies for dessert. And tomorrow I get another Thanksgiving feast at my boyfriend's!
well my mom did make a turkey but we also had vegetarian chicken strips for me which i drowned in mushroom gravy and cranberry sauce. also had mashed potatoes, squash (YUMM), carrots, broccoli, stuffing (i get my own seperate casserole dish of stuffing that went nowhere near the bird). i ate tons
next night i went to the inlaws' dinner where it was much the same (but not nearly as good as my mom's cooking )
oh and of course there was pie... and much wine.
and we did something different at my mom's this year. there's only 4 of us usually so there's way too much food. so this year we invited my mom's next door neighbours to join us. their an older couple who've both been sick a lot off and on the last couple years and their family rarely come to visit. they don't drive and one doesn't work so basically they don't get out much. at first my mom was all "gee i sorta hoped they'd say no, i was just being nice" but afterwards we were really glad they came. turns out the guy's living on meals on wheels and my brother's an utter goofball of course so he had us all laughing pretty hard, i doubt those 2 have laughed like that much lately. seemed like they had a good time maybe a new tradition?
I'm singin' here to get rid of fear Hope it disappears right here with the rain But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way ~Miyavi "Torture"
