It’s almost Thanksgiving and in all honesty I win in the Thanksgiving Mishap Space. My now ex-husband left me on Thanksgiving Day in 2005. So let’s not go there. You can’t win.
So let’s talk about fun family mishaps.
When it comes to NORMAL Thanksgivings I gave up trying to be the perfect Thanksgiving Mom or Hostess. It’s all about family and fun and in our case Star Wars movies all day long. We had to learn to love Thanksgiving again. Next year will be our first year with my grandson to be, so it will be the best Thanksgiving in forever. I can’t wait.
I have trouble with the multi-dish meals – trying to fix 15 dishes at once. I tend to forget something. The mashed potatoes out of the box. Heating up the rolls. The Cranberry Ginger Ale. And we usually don’t realize it until we are halfway through the meal.
This year is different. I’m splitting the menu into 5 parts. One part for each of us. Each person will be responsible for making sure all ingredients are prepped and ready and timed to finish on schedule. Yes, the box mashed potatoes and heated rolls guy gets off easy, but I just care about it all getting done. And taking 15 dishes – ok so it’s more like 8 – and dividing it up leaves 2ish per person.
I think we can handle that.
