One for the Books !

We had a great Thanksgiving! As is our tradition, Uncle Herb’s sink got stopped up and Mama let him our plunger.  Happens every year, about the same time of day.   The Thanksgiving Plunger Exchange. No celebration would be complete without it.  Then I took Mama for a good walk, none of that sissy stuff.  When we got back, the Mater put me on the back porch and started attacking the azaleas and shrubs in the back yard, pulling off dead leaves from our trees.  She could be heard muttering “This is for Noah, this is for Angus,  this is for Ruffles, this is for Declan, this is for Cary Grant, this is for Duffy… get the idea.  She filled up three yard cans and captured some big sticks too.  Crunch, crunch, crunch.  Mama meant business.  For lunch, the Mater was invited across the street, and was charged with bringing two dishes.  Now y’all are going to laugh, but we have NEVER made that green bean casserole with the crunchy onions before.  The step children from a former life never requested it and it was never on Paw Paw’s menu.  You would have thought a chemistry experiment was  going on.  Mama had bought the caramelized  crunchy onions…who knew caramelized crunchy  existed?  Everything went smoothly, the pie that we were given for helping  other neighbors look for their lost dog was warmed up, and so armed,  Mama  set off  and left me and Bucky to our own devices for a few hours.  When she got back, we had a nice snooze, and then I let her play ball with me…just my contribution to a great day.  And thanks to Kismet, I didn’t get any fatty, greasy scraps.  Heck, I didn’t get any scraps cause Mama forgot our doggy bag. But she’s gonna retrieve it tomorrow along with our pie plate.   I love you tomorrow !  You’re only a day away.

    Kismet asks if you got green beans (before the onions and stuff). There hasn’t been a dog in this house who didn’t beg for frozen organic green beans. Kyla loved them.

      Oh yes, before all that other ingredients. Mama is very particular about which hooman food I get, because I don’t get a lot of it. Kismet should know that we follow her advice to the letter! Xxxx SB

    I must say that your post today had my peep in stitches! The Thanksgiving Plunger Exchange started it and the fact that the doggy bag and pie plate was left behind had her shaking her head since she left HER pie plate at her sister’s house last night! Now I am waiting for her to calm down and tell me why she doesn’t serve me a green bean casserole. Sounds like I might like that better than just green beans in my dish! Am I not worth the trouble to make them that way? Humph! 😠🍛

    Yah know pals, the Mater loves nothing more than knowing that we’re NOT the only ones! Yes, you ARE worthy of that particular version of the venerable green beans, however we really prefer them sautéed and crispy crunchy. Keep laughing guys!

    Sounds like you had a nice “HOMEY” Thanksgiving which in our opinion is the very best kind! Also we heard that Thanksgiving and Christmas are plumber’s busiest workdays!
