No more turkey for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving Day we had the usual Thanksgiving dinner and all the trimmings with six side dishes.
There was my son Keith, his wife Betty, their granddaughter, Sadie, and me. I had encouraged the rest of the family to go to the other parents/grandparents and to come here for dessert.
The awful truth hit me Friday morning when I opened the refrigerator, looked in and felt like gagging. I really don’t like turkey!
I called the family and said, “If you ever want turkey again you will cook it or go to a restaurant. I prefer spaghetti, fish, ham, chicken, hot dogs. Best taste, less mess.”
I love the side dishes but who needs eight side dishes at one meal? Side dish food tastes better and looks better when fresh cooked. I will miss my fried mashed potatoes for Friday morning breakfast with scrambled eggs and bacon.
I already feel 100 percent better. The turkeys will love me.
