The post mortem

Thanksgiving was mostly a success–with the tiny exception of the turkey. Well, not that the turkey was bad(in fact it tasted amazing), more that we mistimed the cooking of it yet again. Maybe next year we’ll get it right.

Everything else tasted good and was sufficiently NOT low fat or low calorie. The butter consumption was high enough to satisfy even Paula Deen, so all in all, yummy.

Once again, we had about 2 minutes of discussion on “doing” Black Friday. Then we shook our heads to clear whatever spell had been cast on us and remembered that, oh, right, HELL no.

Those of you who do Black Friday, I’m equal parts in awe of and dismayed by you. In awe because yes, the savings, and also, you obviously have WAY better shopping skills than me. Dismayed because the idea that someone would give up glorious, glorious sleep to shop with what’s always shown to be a mixture of the dedicated and the crazy is something I can’t contemplate.

I missed my family this year, but I need to add to my giving thanks post from yesterday: thanks for Skype, for allowing families who are separated by distance to be connected by technology.

I actually tasted the butter in my mom’s stuffing this year. It was simultaneously delicious and terrifying.

As for Ms. Paula…I love me some butter, but I cannot for the life of me understand how she uses so much of it. If I think someone’s use of a wonderful fat is excessive, there’s a problem. 🙂

I would try Skype since I am kinda remote now, but the process of explaining it would make my head explode.

I actually did do black Friday–but nothing extreme! I wanted to get to Gap around 8:00 to stock up on cardigans and pants for January at 1/2 off–I was out of there within 30 minutes with what I wanted, so not too bad!
