Just a quick little recap of a Thanksgiving at home.
Or, a Thanksgiving without really going anywhere.
I was really stressed about deciding what to do for Thanksgiving. But in the end I decided not to risk it and to stay home at my own house.
Unfortunately I am far from having the culinary skills to prepare an entire Thanksgiving at home.
Luckily my mom was nice enough to prepare send all of the food to me! Via socially distanced delivery boy, which is my dad. I don’t think he likes to be called “delivery boy” even though he was one in this case. Sorry Lexx.
We woke up on Thanksgiving morning and had a leisurely biscuits and gravy breakfast.
After breakfast I insisted that we dress up because I always dress up on Thanksgiving even though it is mostly inside and I wear slippers the entire time.
Slippers were certainly worn for Thanksgiving at home.
At the last minute I decided to set the coffee table up like a real “table” and I felt really proud of it. I mostly didn’t think I had enough “home items” to make a cute little table but I DID.
We drank Irish coffees and mimosas and got pretty drunk before the meal, a time honored family tradition.
When we were ready I warmed up the food my mom sent and it was TIME TO EAT.
Cheesy bread, turkey, stuffing, 3 kinds of potatoes, green beans, etc. ALL THE HITS.
After we ate I demanded we go to Lincoln Park for a “hike” because at my parents’ we usually go into the woods behind their house for a “hike.”
It was a successful “hike” because we spotted a hawk!
When we returned home I ate some cookies I made and pumpkin pie from Edible Underground and then it was time for bed.
