Don't have Thanksgiving dinner
Our dinner was more like 3 p.m.
Our dinner started around 4:00 p.m. Hubby and I prepared a 30 pound turkey with stuffing. Got the turkey to my brother's house and on to the counter. It took 2 of us to get it on a platter. Never in my life have I had turkey meat fall off the bones along with the stuffing. Sadly, there were no leftovers to bring home - it fed 25 people. It was delicious!
My children are my legacy.
I aimed for between 4 and 5. It was definitely after 5. YoungDot and her b/f are coming back tomorrow for leftovers. Either carryout or eat in. They were tailgating tonight so they couldn't take any tonight.
I aimed for 4:00 and rang the dinner bell at 3:55.
Plus I took a little bit of time around lunch time and made enchiladas for everybody! And my very picky middle daughter just made my day when she said to cnm's friend who came down for his break "My mom makes the BEST enchiladas!" Although it is kind of sad when something that takes about 15 minutes to put together outshines the dinner that I spent all day cooking.
I told my sister 4:00 p.m. knowing that she would be late (as always). She arrived at 4:45 p.m. Dinner was ready at 5:00 p.m. It worked out beautifully.
Sauerkraut and Thanksgiving
Baltimore natives don't bat an eyelash when a heaping bowl of sauerkraut is placed among other goodies on the Thanksgiving table. For transplants or visitors, however, the tangy side dish causes more than a few raised eyebrows. Ever wonder how the German staple became a Bmore tradition?
"Growing up, I had no idea that sauerkraut is not, to most Americans, a traditional Thanksgiving dish. It was always there, on the sideboard, as inevitable as turkey. That's part of the condition of being a kid: Your family, no matter the oddities or inconsistencies, still seems perfectly normal. Adulthood came late for me, because it was only five years ago when I learned that my family's sauerkraut could be considered weird, when the man who is now my husband spent his first holiday with us staring in puzzlement at the bowl of it.
We don't get sauerkraut for Thanksgiving up here in New Jersey. I could bring some, but I don't think it would travel well on the train.
The problem with sauerkraut is it has the bouquet of a diaper truck in August.
dinners were good, a hearty thank you to all the cooks that sacrificed time and energy to spread love in this regard!
Eating around 3:00. Taking a roasted turkey and dressing to my nephew's house to be paired with a deep fried turkey and the other trimmings. First time I've eaten any holiday meal with my brother's family since 1996. I wonder how long I'll have to wait before he tries to insult me.
