I know most of my U.S. friends will be busy with Thanksgiving today, either enjoying food, football, friends, family, or some combination thereof. Or perhaps they’re preparing for Black Friday shopping tomorrow. (Or should I say tonight?)
So I’ll limit my Throwback Thursday to a photo of my plate from last year which is the exact thing I will be eating later today:
Starting at 11:00 on the plate, that’s filling (which is a homemade vegetarian version of stuffing), mashed potatoes, cheesy potato casserole, green bean casserole, and corn pudding. (No, I don’t eat turkey or any meat except the occasional fish stick or tuna sandwich.) The rest of my household will be enjoying these, as well as turkey, grilled herb chicken, cranberry sauce, cranberry-pecan-pineapple jello, stuffed acorn squash (we have another vegetarian in the group that likes that), pumpkin pie, chocolate lasagna (yes, I’ll have some of that!), peanut butter Oreo icebox pies (I’ll have some of that, too!), and possibly cherry cheese bars and cinnamon roasted pecans (if there’s time to make them).
So if you’re celebrating today, Happy Thanksgiving! Also, if you’re participating, good luck and please be careful with Black Friday tonight and tomorrow! And to everyone else, Happy Thursday!
Time to talk: What are you eating today? Will you cook it yourself or will someone else prepare it for you? Do you do Black Friday? If so, do you shop for yourself or for others? Are you ready to start decorating for Christmas?
