Mmmm...we do love our mashed potatoes around here!
My favorite Thanksgiving story came from a former colleague of mine. She loved to tell about the year she bought a new covered roaster before Thanksgiving. It happened to be a beautiful shade of blue. She washed it up, popped in her bird and when she took the cover off her roaster to check the bird it was blue.
Not slightly blue. Vividly blue. Like a pair of denim jeans.
And not just the outside. No siree. That bird was blue through and through. Her kids thought it was the funniest thing ever. So they all had a good laugh and every year they repeat the story.
So see? Something good can come out of even the most disastrous Thanksgiving meal!
Of course, if you're still feeling a bit overwhelmed, you can always call in reinforcements to help with the meal prep.
I just happen to be lucky enough to have a fairy on hand...
...and she's always happy to help make mashed potatoes!
Wishing you a Thanksgiving full of good food, laughter with family and friends, and, of course, mashed potatoes!
