It’s bedtime and I haven’t written a post! I simply forgot.
But hey, at least my frig is full! It’s actually even more full than when I took that photo, and there will only be 5 of us!
It took a few days of this and 5 trips to the grocery store in 24 hours to fill that frig. But there was some trauma along the way:
I ran out of chocolate! So I hit Trader Joe’s at around 1PM the Tues before Thanksgiving and there were 4 lines to the back of the store. Even I will not go that far for chocolate. I made a special trip the next morning at 9AM and I was in and out in 60 seconds. But, I had to go almost A DAY without chocolate people!
We decided last year that we were tired of raclette:
It is a fun and sociable way of dining, one that we embraced for maybe 10 years.
For my youngest son it was all about the sauces!
So I asked (well texted actually) the boys and asked what they wanted this year and they chose, of all things, a Burrito Bar. Okey dokey, I can do that. The thing about a Burrito Bar is that there are LOTS of ingredients – I counted 21: 2 kinds of tortillas, Cojita cheese, Cheddar Cheese, Rice, Barbacoa, Shrimp, Pulled Pork, Sauces: Green, Red, Guacamole and sauce for the shrimp, Lettuce, Crema, Onions, Jalepenos, Lime, Cilantro, Corn Salsa, Blk beans and Refried Beans.
Now, do we serve this on the good china? Youngest son will certainly be happy with all the choices. But I’m not done. The chosen desert was, wait for it….
Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting! It is The Cake in the Lyon home and I’ve made it a zillion times. And NEVER has it stuck to the pan….until this year. So it is a little pimply looking but will still be good. I am only 3 days away from Weight Watchers weigh-in so this should be interesting.
And then there is this:
Yes, the football thing is a very important part of the day for Hubby and boys. Texas better win.
So I’m ready for the holiday, blessed beyond measure. I need to ring off and get ready for these goofballs:
I am looking forward to having my two sons and The Best Daughter-In-Law in the World. Happy Thanksgiving!
