Thursday: (11/24) Pancakes and sausage for breakfast. Ernie got the turkey on early and he, Lou, Dawn and Courtney got everything ready for the afternoon feast. I did my best and stayed out of the way. The weather was unusually nice for Thanksgiving. The feast included most of the usual items but nowhere near as too much as usual. It started with hors d'Suvre. Deviled eggs, cheese, olives, celery sticks, etc. Then the meal, roast turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, potatoes au gratin, a fruit salad, almond green beans, and the usual gravy, cranberry sauce, etc. And this was followed by a choice of pies, cranberry pear, pumpkin, or apple mince meat. For some reason or other there were a lot of people needing naps after dinner.
Friday: (11/25) We sampled the Christmas shopping crowd at Fry's so Ernie could get a new keyboard for his computer. We went early and there was still too much of a crowd. Lou was busy studying. I just relaxed all day, sort of like it was a holiday. Pie for breakfast. Hot turkey sandwiches for lunch. Salmon with asparagus and penne pasta for dinner.
