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.
Home made macaroni and cheese
Pasta with sundried tomatoes and various vegetables
Whitefish and tuna dinner
Turkey and giblets
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!
