Thankful for Thanksgiving
I love Thanksgiving! Yummy food! I had to make the majority of the eats this year since I am the only girl in my family. Every thing worked out great! Well, everything except the green bean casserole gunk which, lets be honest, is always gross no matter what you do to it. I forgot that I put it in the oven so it was there for about a half hour when it was only supposed to be in there for five minutes. Whoopsies! The top layer was burned and crispy. Let me tell you, burned beans are NOT good. Ew. haha. I was quite proud of my stuffing though, as you can tell from the picture. It wasn't like the stuffing we have had in the past which just tasted like soggy bread and tyme. I used a great recipe I found on my favorite cooking website, Allrecipes.com. It consisted of apples, sausage, and craisins along with all the other typical stuffing ingredients. Very tasety. My daddy decided it would be a good idea to make everyone their pie of choice so we ended up having 7 pies for the 9 people that were there. Overload? I think so. At least most of them were easy to make. He just wanted Thanksgiving to be especially good this year. My brother and I had a contest to see who could eat the most food. We called it the biggest gainer. we weighed ourselves before and after we ate our large dinners. I was eating more than he expected, and he is very competitive, so he got another plate load and continued to eat. He made a comment about a Bill Cosby rutine that talks about eating too much and your body telling you not to take another bite, but you do it anyway. Then, as the rutine goes, the toilet becomes your best friend as you stick or face in a place where it was never meant to go. Well, this is what happened to him right after he made that comment. Needless to say, I won. haha gross. :) Thanksgiving is over, we can officially sing christmas carols, and decorate! It's christmas time! Love it.
