Zeus and Smudge Welcome You to Thanksgivingtime

It’s after 5pm on Thanksgiving Eve, so we are officially in Thanksgivingtime, in which the early foodstuffs are being prepared so that there will be room in the oven tomorrow for the turkey and other things that need to be made on the day. So cakes and pies and certain casseroles that are reheatable: tonight is your night. Zeus and Smudge celebrate your moment.

For everyone who is trying to get somewhere for Thanksgiving in the middle of a bomb cyclone: Best wishes to you, and may you get where you’re going with a minimum of fuss and disruption. Enjoy your time with family and friends tomorrow. You deserve it.

I enjoy pie.

They want to inform you they have dibs on the giblets for the gravy.
A pan of brownies for tomorrow’s dessert and sweet potato casserole will be prepped tonight. Cornbread will be baked tomorrow, as will the ham; other food items will come with the guests.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I don’t have to worry about cooking because I’m going to my brother’s house. I did make him some caldo verde soup though. Working tonight and hopefully I’ll be able to get a couple hrs sleep in the morning.

We don’t have Thanksgiving in Australia, which I think is our loss. A holiday where you do nothing but sit around and eat and drink to excess? I think I could live with that.

Love the handsome tuxedo boys all ready to help with the food prep! I am sure they’ll find a way to cadge a nibble or two.

I’m spending Thanksgiving painting the kitchen. Our family has reached the point that there are multiple celebrations with multiple groups (kid & spouse go to spouse’s family dinner today, niece & nephew celebrate with their father’s family today) so we moved our meal to the Saturday after, when we’ll gather at my sibling’s house about 130 miles away. It’s less stressful all round, and people don’t need to try to squeeze in two giant meals in a single day, plus then I have the full day to either put up holiday decorations or do projects like painting the kitchen.

I wish you, your family, your cats, and all the visitors to this site a very joyful feast of family, food and fun, and I hope you have much for which to be thankful.
