Thanksgiving Dinner was a Bust, BUT
As some of you know, I am the cook in my family.
My wife's family was coming to our house from outta' state for dinner and a great visit.
On Wednesday, the wife gets a bug up her a$$ and proclaims that she's going to cook the whole dinner herself and did not want my assistance. Waht a drama queen!
She overcooked the turkey. We could not slice it it turned to mush.
She forgot to bake the stuffing. SHe put it together 5 minutes before we ate dinner. It was cold, and flavorless.
She burned the dinner rolls
She burned the marshmallow topping on the yams. They turned into burned marshmallow and yam soup because she did not drain the yams.
She forgot to prepare any type of drink for dinner
The green beans were cold, almost frozen and the almonds were not cooked at all when she put them in the beans
SHe allowed our company to put a spanish onion in our mashed potatos (yuk)
She did not get any pies for desert. Thankfully our company brought one pie to share with 11 people.
So, dinner sucked.
And I am so thankful for everything that went wrong because we had something that could go wrong. There are many people that spent the day alone with little or no food. And no DRAMA.
We prayed before we ate, thanking God for our bountiful meal. We prayed for our family members that were not present. We prayed for our troops. We shared a meal with loving family and thanksgiving in our hearts for all of the rich blessings God has bestowed on us.
We all pitched in and cleaned up. We all went for a long walk in the cool evening after the cleaning was done and laughed at stories we each told of days gone by.
We settled in and watched Shrek 2 and the Grinch that Stole Christmas with Jim Carey.
What a wonderful and blessed day we had. No trips to the ER as is usual in our family. Not one broken bone or sprained ankle. No car wrecks. No falling out of trees. No football injuries.
I hope all ya'all had a good day and remembered the things most important in life...God's rich blessings and a Loving family are more valuable that all the worlds gold.
