Our Boneless Holiday

On the left is Abby's boneless turkey, and on the right is my Tofurky. Both were just right.

I took yesterday, the day before Thanksgiving, off so I could cook. Last week I found a nice light+dark boneless turkey for Abby, and bought two Tofurkys®, one for the office potluck and one for me for the actual holiday. I baked Abby an apple pie at her request. We also had asparagus, stuffing (the subject of an office debate Tuesday as being properly called “dressing”), and broccoli rice casserole. Except for her Abby’s gravy, I cooked it all.

We sat through a couple of movies and napped. I walked Hawken the Wolfhound. The Chihuahuas stayed in our laps.

Home for this holiday.

  1. I too am glad you had a peaceful holiday. For us, it was nice to let someone else do most of the cooking for a change. (For the past 7 years, Marline has always done everything; this year, her cousin’s wife did most of it.)
