Turkeys are Satan's Peacocks.

It seems I am a little late, how ever punctuality was never my thing. So none of you should be shocked. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and ate everything their heart desired. Unless you were at my Thanksgiving dinner, then you did not.

It has been a few years since I have had Thanksgiving dinner at someones house other then my parents. And it was nice. But after all those years of being in control of what foods will be presented at the dinner, and not having that control any more seems to throw off you A-game.

As for me I always thought that Thanksgiving had a strict menu of what was to be served. Ask any kindergartner in your area, then one across the country and I am pretty sure the answers will be eerily similar. I like to mix things up every once and a while, but the thought of knowing exactly what I will be eating on the third thursday of November every year is OK with me. That is one tradition I'm not willing to fuck with.

Apparently my family and I don't share this same feeling....

What was missing....

Mashed Potatoes
Pumpkin Pie
Pie of any sort.

What was served.... 

Artichoke heart salad
Mashed Rutabaga - Close enough to mashed potatoes so I am letting this slide.
Birthday Cake

It was probably the most random Thanksgiving dinner I have ever expierenced. Im not trying to be an ungrateful bitch, because I am so thankful for all the hard work my family put into the beautiful feast, and all the food was still amazing. I just got caught off guard a little bit and was looking forward to some of the dishes that usually are a standard at Thanksgiving. But I guess I will just have to wait till Christmas.

So once again happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope everyone stayed within their caloric limits and didn't eat too much pumpkin pie. Actually I hope you did because then I wont feel so bad that i had to go buy my own personal pie and eat it in one sitting just because I didn't get any pie Thursday.

Happy Thanksgiving,
love you all.

Have you ever had a unique Thanksgiving feast? Or do you prefer the traditional side of things?
