Its blurry and we just might possibly look like the plaid family but we did it. We poked and prodded. We measured and read, chopped and stuffed, seasoned and hoped… Hope it would turn out, hoped it would be eatable, hoped we would’t die from eating it. We basted every 20 minutes to ensure it was tender and juicy, we created a giant mess, we spilled on the floor, and we (and I mean me) gave ‘her’ a name.
But we did it! It was tender and juicy, it was worth the mess, the reading chopping and stuffing. Molly, the first Beck turkey was delicious.
I managed to catch the marshmallows on the sweet potatoes on fire, we had two delishious corn casseroles, the most amazing cream cheese and cashew salad, stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, and mouth watering parmesan garlic mashed potatoes… And we had desserts, ohhh did we ever have some dessert!! We had flying pie hitting the floor, spilled champagne on the carpet, babies chasing the dog, a new puppy chasing the babies, pow-wows on the floor, and football in the street.
Memories and laughter. Stories shared and love given. Inside jokes and years of friendships. Each other.
We had our third year of our “Annual Faux-Giving-Friend-Giving-Thanksgiving’.
