The Breakdown of Dinner

On the menu, from scratch:

  • string beans with seasoned bread crumbs
  •  spicy mushrooms in red sauce
  • candied yams
  • mashed potatoes
  • stuffed mushrooms
  • a turkey that requires two days of cooking
  • stuffing
  • brownies

The wound count:

  • One burned finger
  • One slightly sliced finger
  • Various scratches from fending off the dog (SWEET JESUS, I can’t tell you how many times he nearly burned himself on the oven)

Hours Spend Standing/Cooking So far: Upwards of ten hours

Hours of Sleep Lost:

  • One. I woke up an hour earlier than I had to. Oops.

A Meal That Tastes like My Mom’s Cooking, with Lots of Family:

  • Priceless.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
