I always wanted a full house for Thanksgiving. I didn’t care who came as long as people came.
But I really suck at cooking.
Which kind of means that people don’t really like coming over to eat bad food. I mean, why would they? I certainly wouldn’t.
My mom is nothing like that. She’s an amazing cook. Actually, she’s pretty much amazing at whatever she does. But cooking is a passion for her. So, we usually do Thanksgiving with her and my dad.
I’m looking forward to the pecan pie. She always makes it, then she makes chocolate pie for one of my kids, and pumpkin pie for the other. And if she’s feeling generous, she makes a cheesecake for my dad. It’s a lot of desserts for five people, I know. We handle it just fine.
Maybe someday, I’ll learn how to not burn or destroy all the food that I attempt to cook. Maybe I’ll improve so I can have that full house I was always wanting. Or maybe I’m not meant to cook Thanksgiving and I’ll just get it catered…
What do you have planned for the day?
