I really thought the DNA results would arrive this week. They say they shipped on 11/10 from Oregon. Apparently they shipped from the moon! So I cannot do the big reveal today.
Instead, Missy Ann declared Melissa's last post, the "Thanksgiving Menu Meme."
We're having Thanksgiving at my parents' house this year. And because my mother is in full-on house selling mode, there can be absolutely no cooking or baking at her house. Heating up, okay. So she is getting most of the dinner from a local supermarket. They will make turkeys, potatoes, squash, rolls, and two pies. I told her that the reason we don't just go out to eat on Thanksgiving (as she has wanted to do for years) is that we want the dishes that make our Thanksgiving our Thanksgiving. So I am bringing broccoli casserole and triple corn stuffing--of which I have spoken many times (the recipe is available in the Black Family Reunion cookbook) (Yes, I know, we are Whitey Whitersons from New Hampshire. Deal.) Sissy is making Marla's Potatoes (cf BFR Cookbook). I volunteered her. She hates to cook, but I know she's made them before. My aunt is bringing some kind of date pie. Do you think my mother will let us make fresh whipped cream? (Do you know I was in college before I had whipped cream from a can?)
Speaking of college and being home at Thanksgiving--for the first time in 20 years--it's my 25th high school reunion while I am at home. I think I would rather chew off my left arm than go--and as you know, I know what it is like to stitch one handed. What do you think? There's a poll for that.
