Like a fool I wore blue jeans. They don't stretch but just get tighter and tighter and tighter. :D

Going over to my Mom's for dinner. I will eat again, it will be excellent, but I really don't even want to think about it right now.

Hope you enjoy yours.

Thanks.

My mom seems to be doing ok so far, as this is just the 2nd round of holidays without my dad. Yesterday morning was really hard on me...dang Holiday memories...I stopped crying just in time for work!

I just talked to her on the phone and I need to get ready early so I can get her out of the house...she wants to go play video poker before dinner! She has to have surgery next week...so I am just thankful I no longer live 1700 miles away...now it's too close...less then a mile! :D

Hope your Mom does well. You too. My wife's Dad died earlier this year. Every holiday celebrated for the first time after that brings a fresh round of emotions. The absence of a loved one will always be felt, but the first Thanksgiving or Christmas or birthday celebration or the beginning of baseball season and so forth, will be especially poignant.

We let Whole Foods do all the hard cooking this year, I just put the
turkey bird in the oven to reheat for an hour and a half or so...

Smashed taters, stuffing, green beans, gravy, etc...:D

SLW is making little cheese cake thingys for desert. The dawgs
will get a Frosty Paw each.

And I bought some little Beef Wellington Tenderloin appetizers
for before. Yay!

Also a really good cheese bread we got at WF.

Won't eat till after 4 I'm thinking.

I wish we had a WholeFoods around here.

My daughter is working today, and my son has other commitments. My family will not be getting together until Saturday so I am just hanging around enjoying my semi-boredom.

Trying to decide if I want to go out shopping at midnight.

This will be my first Thanksgiving eating no junk food.. vegan style, along with my parents who have been eating that way for years. Our Thanksgiving spread will include lots of fresh fruits and veggies, along with the traditional fare. I will take a huge green salad and banana pudding. (blending avocados with bananas and garnishing with pistachios. mmmm.)

I'm getting ready to dump a bunch of live Dungeness crabs into various large pots. As a traditionalist, I firmly believe in personally killing what I eat. Sure it cuts out the middle man, but if I'm eating something dead, I like it to be fresh.

Which is why I like to warm up with live oysters.

Every thing else is pretty much the same as anybody else's Thanksgiving, a small Cornish game hen in the oven and garlic ginger noodles for the crab.

Everything is great except for one thing. I forgot to get anything to drink. Here I am practically in wine country and I got nothin'. Decent wine is just so ubiquitous around here I kept putting it off and apparently forgot about it.

I'm becoming peptic at the thought of swilling Pabst with my meal.

Wow that sounds real good, I love oysters and crab, but being the same as everyone else? We did Ham and Turkey and all the fixins! Thats Thanksgiving. Your feast, cool as it is is, is summertime on the beach!!! :D

I ate McDonalds for dinner!

But did have the traditional fare for lunch. Turkey, ham, pie, fried chcken, pie, salad, pie, ice cream, pie and pie. :D My diet starts tomorrow!

The Casino buffet was great....the huge bloody mary's while gambling were even better. My mom had some huge frozen blended coffee drink made with baily's and kahula...after she had 1/2 of it gone, the bartender poured what was left in the blender into her glass....it's not like my mom is a big drinker, but she had seen people drinking these coffee drinks, and wanted to try one...she really enjoyed it.

I ended up winning a free meal and a few other things in a drawing...the slots were hot, but of course I did not quit when I was ahead...that is why they call it gambling....I had a blast.

I would just like to add, in closing, that the Dungeness crab, oysters, and all the rest made for a lovely meal. The only leftovers went into scrambled eggs the next day.

However, the food was so rich I don't think I could look at another crab for a year. Seriously. Gah. Consider this, the crab was so rich that I have yet to try any pumpkin pie. It's just sitting there in the fridge mocking me.

I feel as though I have failed Thanksgiving in some way.
