Some of you may know, I come from a family of twenty. My parents had three children, and adopted fifteen. Always a busy house,
This year, due to other arrangements, it will only be my parents and me for thanksgiving. I am lost really.
I walk through the store looking at turkeys and I automatically look at the 24 lb. birds. I didn't even know they had eight lb turkeys. are they the baby ones? I wonder to myself. I pick one up and go to find the fixings.
How much dressing do I need to make? I stand there for a while, and a nice lady asked can I help you find something. I say Yes, I need to know how much dressing do I need for an eight lb bird? She asked is this your fist thanksgivng? I just say yes not
wanting to explain and move on.
How many potatoes do I need/ I am used to fixing a ten lb. bag. I will buy ( dont know how the font got changed Oh well) about four and hope thats enough. Green bean, I guess a lb will do. I don't know, By now I am fed up with trying to
figure this out and wish I had just ordered, one of those premade meals. (gross).
I check out and go home.
I know that to most people this is normal, but I just dont know how to adjust to this. If anyone has any suggestions, on how and what to cook for only three. Please let me know.
