This year will be our 5th year in a row on our own for Thanksgiving, away from family. It hasn't bothered me before but for some reason this year it bugs a little. Maybe that's a sign we're meant to go home; not sure. But we're gonna try and keep it simple:
List courtesy of Jamison. I'm not going to point out #3 on there. It just sounds. so. wrong. I sure as heck didn't wanna inform him of misspelled words, 'cause heck, we'd have to start all over. again. Where does this kid get his perfectionism from? Sure as heck ain't me.
And of course, my curious (read: frugal/cheap) nature wanted to know the cost on all of this, so here's the breakdown of our simple-ish Skipskiving meal:
Turkey: $15.97 (not including the .50 per hour to cook it)
Stuffing: .99 (I'm a Stove Top kinda gal)
Mashed Potatoes: $4.97
Cranberry Sauce: .89
Veggie Tray (carrots, celery, olives, dip): $3.42
Pumpkin Pie with whipped cream: $5.12
Grand total: $34.35
Huh. Maybe we really shoulda gone to Golden Corral. But then I wouldn't have leftovers. But then I wouldn't have to clean up the huge mess I'll make.
