near-tragedy at Thanksgiving feast

pecan-pieThe first place I went for my annual Thanksgiving feast was great, except that no one brought a pecan pie.   I’m sure this was just an oversight, but it sure is a big one!   Having pecan pie on Thanksgiving Day is more American than apple pie!  Fortunately, the second place I went for Thanksgiving had a freshly-made pecan pie.  Mmm…

The day… was saved…

For those of you wondering, yes, I do have two annual Thanksgiving feasts per year.  🙂  It seemed like a good idea when this holiday tradition started, and I really enjoy it, so I see no reason to stop it.  Besides, since diets don’t apply on holidays, who’s counting calories?

Well, we’re nearing the annual Turkey Day (or Thanksgiving, as most call it).   It is, of course, a day to give thanks (which I covered on my other blog), but here at Buffet o’ Blog we tend to take a lighter look at life.  So here’s some of the things I’m thankful for (and will be extra thankful for on Thursday):

pecan-pieturkey and dressing
ham
macaroni & cheese
hashbrown casserole
mashed taters
gravy
sweet tea
cookies
pecan pie
chocolate pie

I could probably think of a few more things from a typical Thanksgiving feast, but you get the idea.  I am VERY thankful for the great food that we get to eat.  It’s easy to take it for granted, because for most of us it happens every year, but not everyone gets to enjoy such a great feast.  So I really am thankful for the wonderful food I’ll be eating a lot of.

Whoops, I was getting kinda serious there.  It’s good stuff, what I said, but I don’t want to let it take over this blog.   So here’s a Thanksgiving joke for you:

After Thanksgiving dinner, some guys go out in the yard and pass it.

Do you know the answer?   The “correct answer” is football, but there are other possibly correct answers.  🙂  That’s all I’ll say about that!

Now, in closing, I hope you all have plenty of food to eat, and a comfortable place to rest afterwards.  🙂
