A Grin for today

Thanksgiving Forecast

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190ºF. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other.
Please pass the gravy.

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to left-overs, dropping to a low of 34ºF in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50% chance of scattered soup late in the day.
We expect a warming trend where soup develops.
By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be in the bone.

    I dearly love it Diane. It was a very clever bit. It is also good to see you back. Jay and I wish you and George (and family) a very Happy Thanksgiving.

    Our sons have plans elsewhere on Thanksgiving Day, so Geo and I are going to my church potluck Fellowship Meal. Someone is roasting the turkey and stuffing.
    I’m carrying in Corn Casserole, using my Aunt Ruth’s recipe.
    Then on Friday, youngest son Christopher, who still lives here in town, and a couple guests are coming for our family dinner, so I will be cooking the whole deal and loving it.
    We all will get 2 feasts, and plenty leftovers 🙂
