My Plastic Thanksgiving/ November 22, 2007
This is as little out of order, but I couldn’t resist posting the photo I took. Thanksgiving happened to be my birthday. No one REALLY appreciates the effort of a good meal in this house (okay, my middle son does, but he’s also home from college and is VERY happy with any hot food...) and it was my birthday (did I already say that?)...So after a good friend took me to the beach for breakfast and ALMOST for a tattoo..or for an almost tattoo, not sure which..(either way, I didn’t get one!), I got home, relaxed some more...relaxed some more...and then heated up the “meal” I’d purchased from our local grocer.....turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes, even green bean casserole. I DID make the pumpkin pie, by the way...
As it turned out, the pie was the only part of the dinner I liked. Can you say tastes like plastic? Well, okay, the cranberry sauce was okay. The green bean casserole, which I though would be a “treat” for everyone? I threw it out.
So the photo above? My ode to the plastic Thanksgiving (note that I will try again, but maybe from a more...upscale, shall we say, place?)
The photo below? Fort Lauderdale Beach on my birthday.
