An Unorthodox Thanksgiving

November 25, 2010 at 5:19 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

With my dad-in-law flying in from Springfield tomorrow (the best flight deals are to be had on Black Friday!), we’re having an unusual Thanksgiving day. Not since 2005 have we spent this holiday on our own. And even then we managed to cook a ham in our inept Brooklyn kitchen. This morning we called the requisite relatives who were all preparing for their feasts, and when asked what our plans were, we shrugged. Maybe order Chinese? We considered going out to eat, but the mere thought of taking Liam to a restaurant makes me thankful for takeout. 

For tomorrow I vow to keep it simple – just enough ham to feed three, stuffing from a box, frozen corn, canned cranberry sauce. The only dish I take pride in is dessert – fresh-baked pecan pie with pumpkin ice cream. I bought three bottles of wine – Red (Malbec, my fav!!), White (a Riesling called Frisky that Jill and I enjoyed this summer), and a Rose – to cover our bases. Should be a fun weekend!
