I love that Mid has started doing some of the grocery shopping. I can’t get him to do full loads but he’ll stop when I ask him to pick something up.
I was going to do scratched stuffing, but he informed me he only eats stuffing from a box. I’m trying to make things simpler on myself, so I’m not going to go through the hassle of cooking a dish he’s not going to eat.
But our shopping conversations, they go something like this:
Me, this morning: Mid, would you eat homemade stuffing on Thursday?
Mid: No, I only like stuff out of a box.
Me: Okay, well, then stop and get a box when you get home-and some eggs. Also, just grab a box of stuffing. Any box of stuffing. There’s going to be like 15 kinds.
Mid: makes noises that he understands and will get some random stuffing.
Tonight, on the phone: Mid: OMG YOU DIDN’T TELL ME THERE WOULD BE 15 KINDS OF STUFFING AND WHY ARE THERE LIKE 10 KINDS OF EGGS?
Me…Just get the stuffing that’s on sale and the cheapest eggs.
Which is what he ended up doing, but I should have just texted him photos.
As far as I can tell, we’re having Thanksgiving here by ourselves this year. So it’ll be the two of us. This menu will be overkill for us, but we an have leftovers.
A turkey breast (I still haven’t decided how I’m going to cook it)
Squash, pureed and baked with cinnamon and butter
Whole berry cranberry sauce
Green beans, probably Chinese restaurant style (I need to post that recipe)
Pumpkin pie, probably traditional
