Well, the family has gone home. Chris and I had originally planned to go see Hitman today, but I was just too tired. We're sitting at home relaxing now. I'm typing this journal entry and Chris is playing "Mass Effect", a game I bought him for his bday.
The turkey yesterday was fine, but I had mistimed things and so the corn came out cold. We bought a full meal, pre-cooked turkey breast(we don't eat the dark meat, so why bother buying the whole turkey?), mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce from Publix (pronounces puh-blicks, not Pew-blicks like Allaman likes to say it). So all I had to do was warm it up. Unfortunately, the directions for the turkey said 10 minutes, but I think what it meant was 10 minutes per pound, which meant that the turkey was mostly cold when I took it out of the oven. Thankfully, all I had to do was slice it up and nuke it. It didn't taste too bad. I could have stressed over it, but I didn't. Seriously, I'm not a five star chef and everyone knows it. I can cook, but it's not going to be some grand meal. People know this when they come over.
But the house is clean and all the five million dishes have been washed. I can't believe how many dishes we go through for a meal. I mean, there were only five of us, but we used up all the knives and spoons as well as all the dinner plates. And I have a set for twelve. How does that work?!
I hope the rest of you had a good thanksgiving. And I'll talk to you tomorrow.
