Turkey about to come out if the oven. How is my cook top this clean? Where are the side dishes? No I did not buy them premade. Vowels in name remember? The pans are all cleaned and put away. What is my secret? Stay tuned." Here's the answer:
We might think we have it "easy" in 2012 - so many conveniences. But 1969 is where it's at Chez Stag today, Thanksgiving. (Happy TG, BTW.) I made all of my side dishes early this afternoon. And then I took them and placed them on my Salton HotTray from the mid 1960s - a purchase I gleefully made this summer in the Cerebral Palsy Thrift shop where my kids go to speech therapy. For about $25 I think. $125 on ebay - suckers!
In other news, my children might not be my own. They will NOT drink champagne! I cracked open a bottle of bubbly for dinner and Bella pushed a taste away after half a sip, Gianna ran away and Mia turned away. Our Sound of Music Moment ends in a flop. More for Mom - who was drinking the hard stuff in 6th grade - but you know that if you've read my book.
So - Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Here's to hot food and lots of it. Off to feed my Rat Pack.
