Just wanted to take a quick moment to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I think this is the first year in as long as I can remember where it's been just family, no close friends. It's a little odd, but I'm okay with that. It means I don't have to be on my best behavior or try to make polite conversation with people I really wish weren't here. Hahahaha. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of offering dinner to friends who have nowhere else to go for the holiday, but...I'm just glad it's the three of us today.
Dinner is almost ready. Just waiting for the brother to carve the turkey. He gets the best of the holiday. All he has to do is the turkey and eat while mom and I do the cooking and I do the cleaning. My brother gets so exhausted from doing nothing that he must remain in his room most of the day. He will come out to eat then maybe go into the living room to watch TV and take a nap or he might go back into his room. I made buttermilk mashed taters, which is something different for us. They turned out pretty good. I also made the Stove Top. We were going to have Grands Biscuits, but the can was previously frozen and came out in two lumps. We have half a loaf of French Bread leftover from Monday's dinner so I guess I'd better go slice it.
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone. I hope you have a good day, however you celebrate it (or not)
