We now interrupt your regularly scheduled reality...
Pumpkin pie and meat. Said like a true vegetarian's daughter.
The funny part is: I'm not sure she ended up eating either. I think her plate was full enough by the time turkey came around that no one thought to give her any, and she doesn't care that much. As for pie: I saw her eat mixed berry pie, chocolate pie, and raspberry chocolate pie, but I don't think she got around to the pumpkin pie. Ah, well. Most of the guests covered the "essentials."
I agree. The leftovers sometimes looking like a cross between meat and cake. I love meat cake.Next time we're out there I'll cook my special recipe turkey and dressing and we'll see if your mother will make pumpkin pie.
You know what I missed this year? Dad's cranberry sauce. It's bright red, very tart, and made from the real berries. That's a Thanksgiving essential in my mind.
ha! "meat pumpkin pie". children are incredible!!!
