Shawn and I just had a very low-key dinner – with all the trimmings! We made up the veggies, I put a cherry pie in the oven and a little after 5PM we drove on over to my parents’ place and the one healthy family member (my brother-in-law) brought us out our portion of the turkey, my stuffing and even half of the homemade pumpkin pie my sister made. Oh, and gravy!
When we drove home the veggies were ready (yes, I turned off the oven and stove before we went out) and we just heated up the stuffing and gravy a little, Shawn mashed potatoes and turnip and I put butter on the carrots.
Even with our fancy/ghetto serving dishes of glad and ziploc containers, it was still a nice meal.
The best part of having everything in those containers is how easy it is to put away after. Heh.
And don’t say I don’t ever do anything nice for my dogs…
Yes, Annie and Jinx each got a dollop of dinner – everything was doggy safe. No onions in my stuffing and I broke the teeny bit of turkey they got up so small to make sure there were no bones to choke on. Annie loved carrots so I gave her extra since I don’t really like them myself so our left overs would have less carrot.
They seemed to enjoy it. It’s good to have a well-balanced, healthy meal once in a while. Everything was soft enough for Annie to eat, too. (She’s been having trouble with her dry food so now she gets hamburger and rice with all her meals so she can eat… cheaper than buying wet food at $3 a pack!)
I am thankful that Shawn did all the dishes after dinner so I didn’t have to.
I am even too full for dessert and I have two different pies to chose from! Crap, meant to take a photo of the pie because I made a heart in the middle of the upper crust. I’m pathetic, yes.
