I’ve learned a few things this Thanksgiving. First, it takes just as long to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for three as it does for a group. Second, I still eat too much even when making tiny portions. Third, I am grateful for technology to see my family for the prayer even if I cannot hug them. Just seeing their faces and hearing their voices was so meaningful.
“Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence”.
This year we had a tiny smoked turkey & honey baked ham with miniature versions of our favorites. Seven-layer salad, twice baked sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, dressing, jello, pumpkin parfait, and cranberry relish from my sweet neighbor. I made our Piggott chocolate pie but couldn’t even eat a bite. I have no doubt it will be eaten this weekend.
Each Thanksgiving we eat, watch Hallmark movies and football games. This year was no different. And a good time was had by all.
Happy Thanksgiving 🦃
