We had what was probably our best Thanksgiving ever; the day was relaxed from start to finish. I made what I pretty much always make. A brined turkey, cranberry sauce, gravy (made by my mother in law - I don't like gravy and don't know how to make it), cornbread-sausage stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato souffle and green beans. For dessert, pumpkin pie and apple pie and cinnamon streusel ice cream. Everyone ate a lot of everything. There was play with hockey trading cards, stimulating conversation about travel, politics and aspects of life in China with our Chinese dinner guest.
The surprise of the day was Cal losing his first tooth. We'd had no indication it was even loose. He bit into a piece of salami and out it came, creating a fair amount of emotional turmoil. He decided to forgo putting it under his pillow - it made him too sad to think about having it taken away. And the thought of a tooth fairy sneaking into his room while he's sleeping was also just too much for him.
I hope your weekend is lovely! xoxo
