My break went by way too fast. I had a great time hanging out with friends, some old, some new, seeing my family and of course the cooking. I cooked for over seven hours on Thanksgiving! Is that not crazy? I think we all need to go in and hug our parents and our grandparents or whoever’s been cooking for all of these years and let them know how much we appreciate it because I completely underestimated how much work it would be. I’m still exhausted! I got home and spend some time with my family before we made a midnight trip to the grocery store only to find that two days before Thanksgiving they were out of almost everything we needed. I ended up making a trip the next day as well as going by and seeing some other family members. Thanksgiving, I got up bright and early and started cooking. The menu you ask, well of course there was turkey and ham and we can’t forget the vegetarian turkey and the vegetarian him since I don’t eat meat and then the side dishes my absolute favorite! There was macaroni and cheese, yams and greens and rolls and corn and mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing. I made it all! I don’t know how I did it. I guess part of me needed to know that I could but another part of me was really afraid of the idea of cooking under such pressure. If you mess up the food for thanksgiving, you seriously messed up the entire holiday! Since both my mom and my grandma were working, I had to make sure that we had a home-cooked Thanksgiving!
