I had no intention of doing anything for Thanksgiving this year. Usually we go to Whit’s folks back in Huntsville or Florida, but since I refuse to leave my doctors that’s not going to happen. Luke will probably go so he can spend time with his cousins. Anyway, I’d envisioned Whit and I having a lovely dinner at one of the restaurants around here. I should’ve known better. The boy looked at me like I blasphemed against the Holy Ghost at the mere suggestion. That being the case and given that I still tire very easily, I will be starting my Thanksgiving cooking this weekend. Since Auburn plays Alabama the following weekend (For those not from the SEC, envision the biggest sports rivalry you’ve ever seen, Celtics/Lakers in the 80s. USA/USSR in the 70s, etc… then quadruple it and add copious amount of fried food and liquor. That’s the Alabama/Auburn game), anyway I’m thinking about doing a tapas thing. I’ll make my usual Thanksgiving deal; turkey, cornbread dressing, giblet gravy, etc… Bake a cake and a pie and maybe some cookies. Then I need some little things that I can add to that to get us through the weekend WITHOUT any additional cooking. Usually we just go with leftovers, but I think we’ll probably have company at some point and I DO NOT want to cook. I think I’ll get my baking and the additional nibble out of the way this weekend.
