Thanksgiving Dinner: Karla Style
by Karla ° Saturday, October 4, 2008
“Hi Mom. I’m thinking of doing Thanksgiving dinner at my house this year. Can you make the drive to the city?”

“Of course. Do you have a turkey?”

“Um, no...”

“Ok, I'll bring a turkey. Do you need me to cook it for you, too?

“Well...if you don’t mind?”

“What about potatoes. Do you have potatoes?”

“I have sweet potatoes! And a mystery box of instant potatoes! Does that stuff ever expire?”

“Sigh. Ok, I’ll bring the potatoes. Do you need me to bring the stuffing, too?”

“Oh, uh, yeah.”

“And what about the ingredients for gravy?”

“I only have wheat germ, gluten and hard whole wheat flour.”

“I’ll bring flour. Oh, and for dessert, how does lemon meringue pie sound? Do you want me to bring a lemon meringue pie?”

“Sure, Mark loves it. But I don’t eat it, remember? The meringue is too is egg-y”

“So what will you eat?”

“Food without eggs or meat. Mostly wine, probably. How about I handle the wine?”

“Can you buy the buns?”

“Can they be whole grain?”


“Ok! Ok! I’ll buy the buns and wine. But don’t expect much more from me unless you bring a self-cooking turkey made of soy and basted with an Australian Shiraz!”

Hmmmm, it's kinda funny that you'll be doing it at your house. Kinda seems like all the cooking will be done at mom's.

Your Thanksgiving is soon, isn't it?

Now thats the kind of Thanksgiving I would like. But my Mom is the one who does not cook so I get stuck cooking. I think all families have some that cook and some that dont. It makes it all work, at least nobody is fighting over who gets to cook.
