27 Nov

Thanksgiving is the best day on earth.  It’s so much better than Christmas.  Last night was 3rd consecutive year spending Thanksgiving at S’s place, and this year’s menu really topped the other years, only because this time S was cooking for 6 people, which meant that in his mind he was cooking for a Mormon family of 15.  This meant that as always, the 6 guests barely made a dent in all the surplus of food that S had prepared, which means that I will be going over to S’s today, Saturday and Sunday, and most of next week for free leftovers.  YES.  Actually for lunch today, roommate K and I had already taken an entire tray of leftovers when we left the festivities last night, but we’re going back to S’s later today for dessert since that didn’t fit on our tray.

Here’s what was on the menu:

Turkey (of course)

Sausage Stuffing

Oyster Stuffing

Green Bean Casserole

Corn Pudding

Potato Gratin

Sweet Potatoes

Crumbs Cake

Berries Cheesecake

My Plate

My stomach was so overwhelmed after this meal that I literally immediately had to go take a 2-hour nap during the Cowboys’ game, and when I woke up, to no one’s surprise, S had completely blacked out and was snoring mouth-open on the couch.  This allowed each of us to sneakily steal a whole lot of leftovers while S was passed out; meanwhile, the girls were in the kitchen being good housewives and cleaning up the entire place and doing the dishes.  To make a feminist statement, roommate K and I stubbornly remained on the couch eating more food and refused to help out in the kitchen.
