so, last sunday was our first family thanksgiving of the season. i knew thanksgiving would take place this month, but with all the foods available, it's actually not that hard to avoid the meats. what i hadn't accounted for was random meats.
this sunday, tri tip was there, along with turkey. now, don't get me wrong, i like turkey. i expected turkey. i was ready to avoid turkey. but tri tip? dammit. i held strong, and avoided the meat.
what this really makes me want for the remaining thanksgiving feasts i'll attend: people to step their game up on the mashed potatoes. really, i've had a lot of weak, mushy, watery mashed potatoes in the last few years. doesn't seem like it would be that hard to me. we've made them at home during the years, and haven't had much problem.
