The turkey and fixings sure were fine yesterday.
The company was finer.
Thanks was given for the opportunity to sit down at the unfolded portable table in kitchen of the house my dear wife Karen and I call The Little Bitty and enjoy the company of Daryl, Elisabeth and George for the holiday.
You know I took pictures as we celebrated that they made their way through the few inches of snow from the suburbs to the Eastwood neighborhood in the city of Syracuse.
Afterward, we watched some football — the Lions sure looked good and the Bears not — and then one syrupy Hallmark Channel movie about a cookie baking contest and budding love for good measure. I may have nodded off just a bit, but I awoke clear-headed to hear Elisabeth call it cheesey at the end, and I knew nevertheless she liked it better than another football game. The kids packed up to leave to go to other parents’ houses after that. It was a sweet day.
I asked Karen as she’s preparing to leave for work now if we’re having leftovers for dinner this evening. Yes. Score.
How delicious was your meal, and what were the highlights? Were there any special family moments shared? How many leftover meals do you think you’ll be eating?
