Getting Ready for ThanksgivingTrip

November 23rd, 2021 at 06:44 pm

Today I'm going through my fridge and dealing with perishables.  I made apple crisp, and I'm cooking some carrots, most of which I will freeze.  I also chopped up and froze some celery this morning -- that will be good for use in soup.  Now I just have a bit of cheese to use up -- think I'll make an oven-toasted open-faced cheese sandwich later on.  I have managed not to go to the store this week, but I will tomorrow morning, just to pick up food to take to my brother's.  He will have the whole Thanksgiving meal planned, so I am taking wine, coffee, and English muffins for breakfast.  At least that is the plan.

On Thursday morning I will head up to Michigan.  I'm driving.  Supposedly Thanksgiving morning will be the best time to be on the road.  I will probably come home on Monday morning, since Sunday is supposed to be a very bad day travel-wise.  While I'm out tomorrow I'll top off the tank, so I won't have to worry about finding gas on Thanksgiving Day.

I'm hoping everything goes well.  My family has fallen victim to the culture wars, to some degree, so I hope there is no political discussion -- or religious.  So sad that we have to tiptoe around our families and friends these days, when in the past, differences were accepted and respected.

    I hope your family gathering is drama-free and that if any controversial topics come up, everyone is respectful of the opinions of others. I know what you mean about walking on eggshells - my in-law relationships are that way.

    Maybe we need Thanksgiving to remind us! What a boring world this would be if we all thought the same.

    Safe travels!
