Random Dozen...Tuesday?

Welcome to my 100th post!!

1. Are you sticking to traditional Thanksgiving foods this year, or are you being culinarily adventurous?

Pretty darn traditional around here!

2. Tell me something concrete that you're thankful for. (Something you can literally touch, see, etc., not a concept like "hope.")

I am very thankful for my dishwasher. Seriously. It gets a lot of use.

3. You knew the flip side was coming: Share about something intangible that you're thankful for.

Today, as part of my job, I saw a child who had been abused by his mother, so badly that he is legally blind. I am thankful that I never experienced anything like that, and that my life choices have not led me to become a person who would do that.

4. Share one vivid Thanksgiving memory. It doesn't have to be deep or meaningful, just something that remains etched in your memory.

A couple of years ago someone brought a karaoke machine, and lots of people sang. Very strange Thanksgiving activity, in my opinion.

5. What is one thing that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt is going to happen this Thanksgiving because it always does, year after year?

My Great Aunt Rosie will eat dessert before any “real” food!

6. Do your pets get any left-overs?

Nope. Anything but dry cat food upsets Luna’s tummy.

7. Does your family pray before the big meal? If so, do you join hands while seated, stand, repeat a formal prayer or offer a spontaneous prayer? Who does the praying?


8. Will you be watching football in the afternoon? If not, what will you be doing?

Probably not. The guys watch football and the women sit in the dining room, drinking coffee and catching up.

9. There are two distinct camps of people on this issue: How do you feel about oysters in the dressing/stuffing?

This is the type served at our dinner, and I don’t care for it! One of my cousins brings it every year.

10. Do you consider yourself informed about the first Thanksgiving?

Now that I think about it, probably not.

11. Which variety of pie will you be enjoying?

I think a better question is, which variety will I not be enjoying? I love pecan, pumpkin, peanut butter, and apple.

12. Do you feel for the turkey?? (This is a humorous throw back question related to the 12th question in another Random Dozen!)

The poor turkey was born and raised to be on my table; it’s his destiny.

Visit Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee for more randomness... and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
