My wife bought a pre-made Thanksgiving dinner from New Seasons Market earlier today (along with 47 thousand other people with the same idea, we stood in line for about 30 mins to pick it up)

Looks like it will still take an hour and a half to heat it up later today.

We shall see.

My plan is to not lift a finger today and to take advantage of the hospitality of others. Sounds bad, I know.

May God bless your family.

BTW, I just realized we might have the same wedding anniversary. I celebrated 23 years with my wife this past Sunday, the 19th.

Small gathering at home today.
Family all far away.

But feeling wonderfully blessed.
Our puppy is home, and on insulin.

Cooking smells fill the house.

I don't say anything more than, "Happy Thanksgiving," with a peck on the cheek as I pass through the kitchen, but seeing my wife cooking away wearing a big, goofy apron and with a smile on her face chokes me up.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I ate way too much. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Back atcha Steve.

Mrs FredS is low man on the pole in the ER so she's working today and tomorrow. But Saturday, my brother from Estes Park and my BIL from Casper are coming here for a late celebration. We've not had Thanksgiving with either of them for 30ish years so it'll be nice. They have no idea what they're in for as Mrs FredS happens to be a premier Thanksgiving cook who puts out quite a spread. Plus they and my nephews can help me rearrange furniture in a way that suits Mrs FredS and carry crap to the basement.

Thank you and Congrats Cleon. May God continue to bless you and your family.

P. S. Do me a kind favor and PM me a reminder of our anniversary next year, it'll save me a huge hassle! Thanks man.

The food was indeed outstanding. It said it feeds 10-12 people but an more accurate count would be more like 15-20.

It is a heat and eat thanksgiving dinner, delicious and made good reviews by all.

Will do again, maybe for x-mas dinner even. No fuss no muss.

I’m hanging out with my daughter in her room reading books and making animal noises so that my wife can sleep peacefully on the couch after getting home from work at 2am. Fun morning!
