Thanksgiving Part Deux!

So Second Thanksgiving went well. We spent the morning cleaning some more and running errands.  We picked up a total of a dozen cupcakes this week and I think we’ve officially met our quota for the week for that store.  But it’s good to steam clean the carpet every once in a while, even if it’s just a spot clean for all those little spots that miraculously appear.  Nobody remembers spilling anything there!  And it’s just Chris and myself.  So it must be the Stain Fairy.   She comes all stealthy in the night and puts them in your carpet.

The turkey we got from Publix was yummy as well as the mashed potatoes and stuffing that came with it.  I like the cranberry sauce the best.  It’s not the canned jelly stuff.  You can actually see the cranberries in the sauce.  And cranberries are good for you.

I made a second pitcher of sangria that went over really well (both at E & K’s and at home.)  The recipe is here.  I skipped putting in sugar and the maraschino cherries.  The frozen lemonade already has a lot of sugars in it already.  Instead of carbonated soda, I used Sprite instead and that has more sugar as well.  But it was yummy in any case and it’s easy to get drunk quickly with it.

After dinner was Rock Band 2, Granny style.  We managed to find the ‘No Fail’ mode, which helped the family play  alot better.  It’s a much better way to play without having to worry about failing everyone in the group.  Bad singing or horrible button mashing, the game is a lot more fun when you are allowed to do horribly.  Surprisingly, they played the rest of the evening before heading home.
