Home for the Holidays

Post by JMiriah » Sat Nov 10, 2012 12:22 am

It was bad enough my son chose that appalling lifestyle, Officer. I couldn’t tolerate it in my home.

The table was laid out when he arrived. I’d spent all day in the kitchen preparing the holiday fare he loved as a child. Mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, and stuffed turkey roasted to perfection.

Then he put that repulsive dish in the center of my table, next to my lovely turkey, without the barest hint of remorse or apology.

Picking up the carving knife is the last thing I remember.

Surely no one could expect me to try tofu.

No jury would convict her.

I am a vegetarian myself, actually. But I would never serve tofu to a guest:-)

A few years ago my oldest daughter brought a friend home for Thanksgiving dinner. He was very reluctant to try the mushroom brioche I’d made. Traditional Thanksgiving day fare at his parents’ house included Balut (duck embryo). Palatability is so subjective…
