A Feast Indeed

21 Nov

Any day that it’s expected for you to eat so much you can’t move is fine by me.  In our family, we encourage it by having more food than you’ll find at a chinese buffet. 

In talking to my co-workers about what they’ll eat on Thanksgiving, I realized that my mom, as usual, takes it to a whole ‘nother level.  Below is a list of the things we’ll be eating come tomorrow.

  • Stuffed celery (if you don’t know, you better ask somebody)
  • Deviled eggs
  • Congealed Salad
  • Broccoli Casserole
  • English Pea Casserole
  • Sweet Potato Casserole
  • Pineapple Casserole
  • Squash Casserole
  • Brown Rice
  • Plain Rice
  • Rolls
  • Dressing
  • Turkey
  • Ham
  • Butter Beans
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Pumpkin Pie with homemade whipped cream
  • Pecan Pie
  • Coconut Cake

So how many of us are there?  Oh, 8.  And one of those is a 2 year old.  Not a single dish above isn’t made from scratch, so by the time we sit down to eat…my mom is only thankful for wine, doesn’t eat much at all, and goes to bed at 7.
