|Turkey centerpiece is thinking, "Bob?! What have they done to you?"|
Somehow we ended up with the following dinner:
- 14 lbs of turkey (brined, roasted and good as hell)
- 12 rolls (I'm pretty sure they were 99% butter)
- 8 lbs of mashed potatoes (garlic parmesan and regular)
- 4 casseroles (squash and broccoli)
- 3 roasted yams
- 1 lb of cranberry sauce
- 1 pint of gravy
- 1 pot of stuffing
- 1 apple tart
- 1 pudding pie
Even now, days later, I can't tell you how we managed to a) make that much food in the kitchen from hell or b) why we had so much of food. All I know is that Mother Magoo is spending all day tomorrow making a double batch of Shepherd's pie, because that is how Irish-American mothers use up four pounds of mashed potatoes. Meanwhile our entire freezer has been given over to gallons of turkey stock. And that's not a hyperbolic gallons either.
At this point we're still so engorged from Thanksgiving if you cut us we'll bleed turkey and gravy instead of blood. That sounded a lot funnier and less disgusting in my head.
