The fact that I’m about to post about last years Thanksgiving, instead of showing you what I’ve been eating, has nothing to do with the fact that I forgot about a substitute training I had which made me run out the door with wet hair 10 minutes before I had to be there. Or the fact that my day being all crazy + PMS = eating like this all day
Nope, not at all. I just like thanksgiving.
So, I’m lazing out on Thanksgiving this year a bit. Because I forgot until Friday we’re about to go out of town for a few days and we wouldn’t eat through the leftovers…
But I thought I’d show you last year’s meal! Baby Brother (btw, that is an accetable name to call him-there’s no need for “Eating Machine’s brother” or anything. He’s just Baby Brother. Kinda like Brother Bear.) went to PSU last year (that’d be Portland State) and we had family dinners once a week where we made sure he ate something.
Well, he ate. This made sure he ate something that wasn’t pie and/or Safeway Chinese food.
Family dinners were always proper meals. And we did thanksgiving all out.
I had a giant turkey
(Barefoot in the kitchen. Heck yes. I sewed the apron myself too. It’s weird how my women’s studies prof in college didn’t like me.)
That was described by my roommate as “bigger than my head”
She wasn’t lying
The fiance did the carving
We ate in the living room, the table was way too full of food
Note that Baby Brother totally has a glass of milk.
The big pan in the corner is stuffing, cooked out of the turkey with veggie bullion as my roommate was a vegetarian. Plus, the turkey takes less time to cook that way. Win-win! And the rolls are homemade.
I don’t eat the stuffing. And usually not the mashed potatoes either. But I insist on rutabagas. (In fact, I just got back from buying some at the store). They’re my favorite.
What thanksgiving food do you love or hate?
