Thanksgiving went without a hitch. The food was excellent, the fire roared, the cat stayed upstairs and a quiet truce was called between warring parties for the night.
A few things that I have learned.
1. Cooking a turkey is easy. Your mother didn't want you to help because she didn't want you to know how easy it was.
2. Timing the side dishes is hard but not impossible.
3. Spending a day in the kitchen sounds horrible but in fact is quite nice.
4. Compliments on the meal are much appreciated.
I'm at work, it's 10:15 am friday morning. No one, including the boss, has shown up yet. I'm beginning to wonder if we have the day after Thanksgiving off.
