Happy belated yummy turkey day! I hope everyone was able to spend some time resting and relaxing!
This year we decided to stay home and make our own small meal. Our families are far away or we’ve planned to see them for Christmas and most of out friends were out of town.
We had instant versions of all of the basics: mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, apple pie, and green bean casserole. Well, I attempted to make the potatoes from scratch, but they bested me again this year. Mashed potatoes: 2, Erin: 0. I’m going to have my Italian Mama Bama show me the ways of the secret moment when the potatoes are boiled enough, but not over boiled. I think I was proudest of our simple precooked, pre-sliced chunk of turkey. Pfaw, like this lady could cook a turkey…
I took the customary pictures of our yummy spread (ooh did I mention the feta stuffed green olives?!) and joked about how “fancy” our meal was. However, upon clean up husband remarked that serving the food in Tupperware simplified the refrigeration process, so win!
One of us believes that turkey food is AhMahZing when the food touches, the other believes that the food must NOT touch at all. Which plate belongs to whom?
We purposed so spend this 4 day weekend relaxing, but even more fun, together! I am a huge quality time person, but I do better, my tank stays filled longer, with longer chunks of time versus small band aids of time.
Together we played computer games, ate leftovers, lounged in comfy clothes, stayed up till 4am, slept in past noon, laughed, joked, goofed off. It was really this incredible little exclusion from the rest of the world. 🙂 Yay for perfectly simple Thanksgivings!
