I really like this holiday. Thanksgiving kicks major ass. Of course, I like to eat too. I think Thanksgiving gives some legitimacy to gluttony…awesome.
On the menu today:
Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant Massacre…it’s the eighteen minute holiday Blog tradition.
Oven roasted turkey with apple-sausage stuffing…the stuffing is a relatively new addition to the meal. I was tired of the same old cornbread stuffing.
The parade of starches begins with:
Macaroni and cheese bake…loaded with cheese…comfort food to the max!
Sweet potato soufflé…A few years ago I asked for this recipe on my Blog…Barbara responded, great flavor and easy too. No one eats this but me…I’m just too lazy to make only for myself…
The lovely and talented Priscilla answered her sweet tooth craving by creating a delicious looking Banana Nut Bread…yum!
My mother is at my brother’s this year.
Some folks eat their holiday meal at noon, some at two. Not us…we eat late about four or five. In the early days, we would have to travel to the parents’ houses for holidays. After a few years of loading and unloading kids we thought, “Fuck all this shit!” Now we stay home on holidays and have the ‘rents come to us. However, eating late seems to accommodate everyone’s schedule. Besides, I get to sleep in and start cooking later…Awesome!
A couple of years ago, special friend and fellow blown-eye, Zonker came to dinner. We were especially
excited thankful about that. Again, this year he is traveling to Florida. He will miss the Pumpkin Chunkin’ and funny videos.
Oh Hell! I’ll paste the videos for everyone:
While I have your attention, I want to give thanks to all the military personnel for making the sacrifice to protect me and my family so I can be safe today. I hope everyone has a safe holiday and a Happy Thanksgiving.
