I hope all my American friends had a Happy Thanksgiving!! Ours was a bit on the crazy side, but crazy is our middle name so it was just a normal fly by the seat of your pants day.
A few weeks ago we saw an advertisment that USA Steak Buffet was having a T-day meal from 10-3:30. I said to dh "Let's just do that..the boys probably won't eat turkey anyway (part vegetarian I swear) so it doesn't pay to cook a big turkey for just the remaining 3 of us." We starved the kids and headed over. Well...apparently...1/2 of town decided the same thing. We got to the restaurant around 11:00 and the parking lot was FULL, the parking lot next to the restaurant..FULL..the parking lot across the street..FULL! People were waiting out the door, down the sidewalk and almost around the corner. Soo..onward we drove, trying to come up with a plan B. We drove by the local jail and saw the guards bringing in the Thanksgiving meals for the prisioners. We briefly thought about stealing the birds and making a run for it, but decided against it. So we went to Perkins instead, and not a one of us had turkey. BUT..3 of us (dh, myself and *A*)were still hungry for turkey. We went to Walmart, bought a turkey, stuffing, etc, and made turkey with all the fixins' at home today.
