|Did your Thanksgiving table ever look like this??|
Thanksgiving is nearly over, Thanks Be to God! Although it is just a stop-gap in the days between Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving should be a time of family.
Memories of a frantic kitchen with Moms, Grandmas, and teenage females are made alive by the scents of current day Thanksgiving meals. Hours and hours from the day before until the table is laden with the delightful turkeys, stuffing/dressing, gravy, mashed/creamed potatoes….so much thought, love, and hard work went into presenting a massive meal.
Memories then were fond and delicious. Now? Instead of carefully preparing pies to show pie-making prowess, CostCo and WalMart provide the ready-made varieties. Let’s be honest here: their pies are cheaper, labor free (for the consumers), and in some cases, better than the pies cooling on the counters.
Lift a glass to toast the maker of the feast! With modern providence, family can sit down in the family room and actually enjoy each other. With aluminum pans, plastic utensils, and heavy duty paper plates, even the clean-up allows for time to laugh, play games, or karaoke with off key singers.
