If yesterday was "Black Friday", is today "Mostly Grey Saturday"?
No, I don't go out at the wee hours of the morning to go shopping. My "big" holiday at the end of the year is New Year's, and there are sufficient sales after the 26th of December that I need not battle traffic, lines and checkout clerks to get bargains.
As for Thanksgiving, we celebrated with our turkey dinner this past Sunday. My new daughter in law was leaving to head north and help her mother pack up to move as of the Monday before the holiday, and also had her birthday that preceding Saturday. So we just moved the turkey and the birthday celebration to Sunday. For the actual Thanksgiving, we had our traditional "feathers" cassarole, which is cubed leftover turkey meat, leftover mashed potatoes, leftover dressing (I make an herbed wild rice dressing with the giblets that is very good - my mother's recipe), leftover gravy (made from the drippings of a bird whose only "stuffing" is white zinfandel wine), some cooked white beans, cubed carrots, and bread crumbs for on top. FWIW, we always plan the size of the bird we buy on just how many leftovers besides
the "feathers" we want to have. When Mom was alive, she'd make turkey foo yong as well, but I don't do so good standing over a stove anymore, so... Ah. The memories!
My main story for you today is a sequel to another one-shot that I posted a while back entitled "Return". I hope you enjoy it.( Sacrifices )
