My standard Thanksgiving fare:
- Turkey with sage stuffing
- Sweet and sour meatballs
- Wild rice with mushrooms and bacon
- Cabbage rolls
- Mashed potatoes
- Peas with sauteed onions
- Glazed carrots
- Pumpkin pie and whipped cream
Afterward, the family tradition is to flop down on the couch and unzip the pants to relieve the pressure.
After about an hour of rest, we rally around the cleared table to play cards and rob each other of the change we have in our pockets.
And then it's rinse and repeat at Christmas time - but with the addition of a glazed ham, change up the pumpkin pie for a strawberry rhubarb pie with
ice cream and tons of baked christmas goodies (shortbread, lemon tarts, matrimonial cake, etc).
It's a wonder none of us are 800 lbs... yet.
