happy thanksgiving


I dont cook
 okay
 so I occasionally
 make pancakes
 went through 
a baked turkey meatball phase

 way back when
 I used to
 cook
 bake
 make bread

 we had
 an even smaller kitchen
 back then
 now
 I dont cook
 I re-heat food
 which is what
 I will be doing today

 all those containers
 hold
 our pre-cooked
 ready for me
 to hot up

 see that pink paper
 its instructions
 on how long
 each food
 needs to be warmed
 in the oven
 we gotchya
 turkey breast
two kinds of stuffing/dressing
 two veggies
 turkey gravy
 jalapeño cornbread
 two kinds of potatoes
 cherry pie
 pumpkin pie
 a nice Malbec

 I think there will be leftovers
 I hope there will be leftovers

when we say thanks
 we will mean it
 and 
not just for the food
 but
 for each other

 wishing
 you and yours
 a very happy thanksgiving

 I am thankful for you too!

  7. I would love to go the 're-heatable route', but Hubby likes the real deal so he does the bird and the stuffing and I do the rest. Someday I'm going to suggest we actually go out for dinner on Thanksgiving and see how well that goes over. LOL Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy this wonderful day!

  8. Yes, it looks like you have a little bit of everything there, even the wine. Don't heat it up though.

    Heather cooked all day yesterday, I smoked two turkeys and a huge pork loin. My MIL cooked all day also, and so did some other relatives. We're meeting for dinner at MIL's house. It's going to be fun.

  9. All the fixin's and a relaxing day to boot. What more could you want?

    My new daughter in law is doing the dinner this year, so I'm off the hook too - for the first time in decades. I'm loving it! I'm actually parked in front of the TV instead of the stove, watching the parade and thinking of you.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. This is amazing, Daryl ~
    It's so much work fixing dishes and to have it all done for you would make such a relaxing day. I've been up since 7:30 and finally have all my offerings done for taking to the family dinner. And there are only three of them that I made. Gah. I am exhausted!
    I think the only thing I would miss with an excellent meal like this is the scent of it cooking. But that's the only thing! Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

  12. No matter how simple the meal is, it's still Thanksgiving. I'm having 9 people over, and have it pretty much in hand.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too.
