Sudden Change of Plans for Thanksgiving

Sudden Change of Plans for Thanksgiving

Ellen and I were going to go to my brother’s house for our Thanksgiving—and then the plans came to a screeching halt. My sister-in-law called and postponed it unitl Saturday. She isn’t feeling well.

That left Ellen, her boyfriend and me with no plans at all. I could have gone with Kevin, but that would leave Ellen stranded. Since I don’t think I can make it to the grocery store, I made a list of items that I could throw together for dinner and let Ellen pick. I sent her the following email invitation:

You are cordially invited to Thanksgiving Dinner at the Mansion on the Hill. What do you desire for dinner? I don’t have time to go to the store for lasagna fixings. Please choose from the following menu.

Chicken Cacciatore
Chili
Sausage soup
Home made macaroni and cheese
Spaghetti
Pasta with sundried tomatoes and various vegetables
Yogurt
Homemade applesauce
Whitefish and tuna dinner
Turkey and giblets
Mixed grill
Salmon dinner

The last few items were what I could find in Thunder’s cupboard.

She chose spaghetti and found me a recipe for butterscotch brownies with cream cheese filling for dessert.
It’s going to be a great meal—and we still get to celebrate on Saturday, too!

I'm with you on the Turkey.....I'm not a huge fan either. I DO like ham tho- and we have that often for Holiday meals as well. My family knows they don't have to do anything special for me anyway...Id happily spend the day visiting my horse if no one made any plans. Surprisingly that has never happened in the 16 years I've had Griffin. ;-P

I'm not crazy about turkey either. We're having chicken with our Thanksgiving meal. Spaghetti sounds awesome too!! I would definitely pass on anything from Thunder's cabinet LOL!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
