I'm Curious

Has there ever been a Thanksgiving turkey dinner that actually started on time in the history of our country? Think about it, when was the last time the Thanksgiving turkey was done early? I'm convinced that everybody's food coma comes not necessarily from eating too much but from being so incredibly famished by the time the food finally is served that their metabolism is super low and their bodies can't take it. And that's not to mention how drunk you are from drinking a couple glasses of wine or beers on an empty stomach waiting for the bird to be cooked. The good part is that Thanksgiving is the only meal where the food arrives on the table two hours late and nobody complains or says a word about it.

Late dinner or no, Carrie, Milo and I had a fantastic Thanksgiving. Here's the dessert I made; Cranberry-Charged Pumpkin Pie topped with a Ginger Cookie, Almond, Walnut, and Cranberry Crumble:

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. I'm thankful for all of my family and friends who have enough interest in my little life to stop by my blog and listen to what I have to say.

Now go make a turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce and mayo. That's a meal that can be prepared in no time.

I think I heard a few grumbles of complain waiting for dinner! Next year, let's make a great appetizer!

Our dinner was something like 4 hours late! But, we were eating all along, so we were all fat and happy!
