As the woman of the family who cooks the entire Thanksgiving meal, I have found over the years that there are certain people that I want and need in the kitchen with me, and there are certain people who I do not. So Aragorn here from the Lord of the Rings meme says it beautifully...
Then, I've got my little guys, who God love them, want to help me, but make everything 10x harder for me. I try to find something simple for them to do even if it means one or two more messes to clean up.
Then there's this guy - who parks himself in front of the TV and watches football the entire time.
I made a meme that would best describe how I feel when I am trying to get everyone to come and eat while it is still hot. I mean the timing of the food is so crucial - and you only have so much oven space and time to carve the turkey while it's at the perfect temperature - so I get a little stabby when I have to repeat myself that dinner is ready. This. Is. Sparta. My Greek temper flares up.
If I am going to cook this much food, what I really need is a fancy shmancy commercial sized wall oven that can accommodate a turkey, a ham, and all of the side dishes. Oh, and Santa, bring me another refrigerator, too. What's First World Problems girl complaining about? I have to put some of my stuff outside in the cold when the fridge is booked up.
And there you have it, another successful Thanksgiving where everyone ate, drank, and was merry all day.
And I'm thankful for you...all of you...my family, friends, pets, who giggle at me, with me and around me on a daily basis. Happy Thanksgiving!
