Thanksgiving Hopes

I won't win any culinary award, just ask my family- any family member.    

Perhaps you know that the only appliances that work in my kitchen are the microwave, the counter convection oven and 1 burner on the stove.  

Even still, my waistline hasn't been reduced; there's always take-out and Domino's chicken wings.  

This Thanksgiving, the conundrum is what will we eat on Thanksgiving?  
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches don't seem to wet the appetite, nor create a situation for applause. 

I was looking forward to going out of town and dining with friends in an overpriced restaurant, being thankful for not having to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  

Sadly, I was outvoted and we remain in a house with an empty refrigerator.

Rather than starve, Scott and Will decided we would go to my sister, Judy's house for dinner.   This means I must be prepared to bring something to add to the buffet line and one just doesn't "drop in" for the Thanksgiving Feast, so I sent my sister an email...


Hello,

My crew did it to me again.  We were supposed to go to Boone for Thanksgiving and they bailed out on me.  

They also begged to eat dinner at your house, even though my toaster oven works perfectly fine.

So if you have room for 3 more, we would love to come to your house for Thanksgiving.  I will be happy to bring something, like toast.  Please let me know.

Helen


Now, I wait to hear from her... I guess I better get out the peanut butter and crackers to make hors'duerves.



Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I'd love to hear all about your dinner and the goodies on the table, write to me at aitken.helen@gmail.com.   

Have a blessed day.
