As expected there was lots of mashed potatoes left on Thanksgiving. They were not very good. But everyone gave the meal high marks despite the fact that the green bean casserole dish was missing and most of the sides were veggies. The half potato half veggie pancakes flew onto the plates and into people’s stomachs so that was great. I wasn’t going to make my brussels sprout dish because well, quite frankly some people find them offensive. Glad I did, they were the first to go!
All and all I think things went well.
But I do have a confession. I had a small piece of pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie is served once a year so I figured I couldn’t miss the opportunity. I went for a walk to compensate.
Over all it was a great Thanksgiving. I got to spend time with the people in my life that mean the most to me. That is what it is all about.
