Our patients on caseload needed to be seen, which meant I had to balance cooking and baking before, during and after work.
It was on like Donkey Kong.
The best thing I learned from Thanksgiving this year, was that if you follow the directions listed on the turkey to every detail, you could quite possibly end up with the best, most delicious tasting turkey known to man. I'm still waking up at two in the morning to get a turkey snack.
The worst thing I learned? If you DON'T follow the instructions on a ham and just 'wing it' (bad pun) along with the turkey, you could end up with the worst, most awful chunk of leathery meat imaginable. I mean like, hiking boots could be made out of this stuff.
With the worry about work, I put both the turkey and the ham in together at the same time, thinking I was the Martha Stewart of all delicious holiday meats.
Ummmm...yeah. Not so much.
I will say that was one of my favorite things about the day, regardless of the food, was that we had a little helper.
What we're used to, is a group of kids running around the house like wild, or a toddler wanting to throw eggs into the proverbial pumpkin mix.
This year though...our little girl was old enough to truly help us in the kitchen. It was hard not to smile as our youngest carefully measured and focused on her cooking and baking. I had visions of years to come which were both as bitter as they were sweet.
We hope that you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year and we pray for those who couldn't be with ones they care about for whatever reason that might be. May your year that follows, be blessed beyond compare.
