Oooh, points for Arneb.

Big potluck dinner here at the home tomorrow. And plenty of leftovers for us to grab at the end. Have a happy thanksgiving, or at least have a good thursday.

We have a lot of NAtive Americans here in Michigan, they are less enthused.

Traditionally, the huge feast is early in the day, and about now everyone is on the couch staring vacantly at the football on TV.

But here at the home, we had a huge feast for sure. The home pays for a large turkey, and we have pot luck for the rest. Wring made roast hard squash with peppered bacon, and cranberry relish. We had dressing, mash potatoes, salads, various pies and cake, and of course the famous green bean casserole. Our "new guy" (older than me) and his family were there, and they had been to church earlier. That church had had a large dinner as well, and they sent all their leftovers to our dinner. SO we had boocoo food.

I was disappointed there were no devilled eggs this time. I have a can of quail eggs (they are hard boiled already) and I was toying with the idea of cutting them all in half and devilling the yolks and making tiny devilled quail eggs, but I feared the locals would not understand. Oh well, more for me.

I already have consumed some spare cake. Rosie makes a great mandarin orange cake with pineapple frosting. Tasty.

I grabbed a lot of white meat, and I have plenty of mayonnaise, so I think I will get the black pepper, and consume some. It was six hours ago after all.

I am inspired to wonder: we have pineapple upside down cake here as an old time treat. In NZ would that just be pineapple cake?

This is truly inspirational.

Methinks IRU should have every icon available in an upside-down version. Call them hemispherical emojis or whatever

As for me, we went to the in-laws (the good ones) on Thursday, and we had the typical large meal with turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, scalloped corn, green bean casserole, salads (both of the green and marshmallow/gelatin variety), and veggies and ranch dip. And then pie - pumpkin, pecan, black forest, and peanut butter. It was all good. Due to the threat of bad weather, we weren't able to get to my family's gathering on Saturday, but I think we managed pretty well, anyway.

Oh, I forgot marshmallow/jello salad. As it turns out here at the home, our friend Ruth sat with us, and she asked me "Didn't you try my salad?" She had made green Jello, marshmallows, and whipped cream salad for potluck. I was thus obligated to go get a glob of the stuff. and smile.

This holiday is absolutely not practiced here.

We do have Black Friday, though.

Dinner here at the home, potluck. We had two turkeys, 8 pies were present. I made two batches of stuffing, which were all consumed. Well , since I didn't cook the stuffing in a bird, technically it is dressing. I think we had about 20 attending.
