Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We are in Durham, North Carolina with my in-laws to celebrate my favorite holiday. We will begin the day as the Turleys have for over 40 years with our Turkey bowl football game, though this will be a smaller affair since we will not be in McLean this year. We will then get to watch the Chicago Bears play the Packers! What else could one wish for? Turkey, family, football. The pilgrims never had it so good.
We will have our traditional Thanksgiving meal and I will be making the Waldorf salad (I get to focus on eating since my father-in-law will be doing the Turkey). As a pumpkin pie addict, I usually make a scandal of myself by the end of the day. This year, Leslie and I bought a special Bourbon (Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon) that we tasted in New Orleans to make Old Fashions. Leslie made the Old Fashions last night and they were awesome.
I truly love this holiday and, after sufficiently stuffing myself, I will roll on to the couch to walk the Monsters of the Midway play that other team in the continuation of the oldest rivalry in football. (I brought my away jersey to wear for the game). Bear Down Bears . . . and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone (even Cheeseheads).
