A lot of people ask me what the heck do you eat on Thanksgiving? I usually tell them, don’t worry about it. But, here it goes: I do not eat meat, so that makes turkey or ham or any other meat a bit of an issue. Then, there are the sides: I can’t stand stuffing (wet bread), sweet potatoes (mushy texture (I’ve TRIED to like them), gravy is a NO GO, ANY kind of casserole just makes me cringe and want to barf, cranberry salad is average, and pecan pie is the absolute worst.
What does my plate look like you ask? It’ full of macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes (no gravy), if there are deviled eggs – look out, any kind of fresh salad and vegetable NOT casserole-ized, rolls–oh the rolls (yes, yes and yes) and all the pumpkin pie I can find with copious amounts of whipped cream.
Truly the day is not about what is on my plate … it’s about who I share the day with. I’m blessed with a wonderful husband, a wonderfully large family, fabulous friends and an incredible j-o-b with the most amazing listeners! Hug your people this week! Happy Thanksgiving ALL!
