This year, my family has insisted on 'schlepping all the food' which is literally giving me nightmares. The 25 yo niece is bringing the 'green bean casserole'. I am picturing canned everything for this one. I get 'why' they are doing this -- I have been doing all the cooking for years plus we are down to one oven these days -- but I am dreading the dinner. My only hope is that it is so bad nobody ever suggests such folly again.
Enjoy your day! I am envious.

We've made our own sausage - it is a minefield of trenches.
That's as far as I can stretch the metaphor right now, but feel free to email if you'd like particulars.
And, enjoy, I know whereof you speak.

Dammit, Joke, I want thanksgiving at your house.
Would it help to mention that I love to prep?

Ahh, the quiet solitude that comes from prepping, working methodically through the list and so on and so forth.
But this: fresh reminders of exactly how scandalously low on chlorine is my gene pool is the story of my life.
And I'm adopted.

OMFG. May I just call you Martha? When I come over for Thanksgiving dinner, I mean?

Ms.- When people ask me why I do all this cooking, I say -- rather frankly -- it's so I can have something I'd eat without coercion.
bb - This is more breakfast/bulk sausage than stuff in the casings. That's another post for another day.
Shula - You can't fool me. You just want to check out those Super 150s and Sea Island Cottons and otherwise do a whole Daisy Buchanan number.
Kim - Yep. There ought be a club or something.
BB - This isn't the one where you array yourself like a prison matron, is it?
