What are you eating this Thanksgiving Eve?
On Saturday I went to the grocery store and bought an eggplant, three kinds of squash, red grapes, Pink Lady apples and other assorted fresh produce items to create an impressive cornucopia for the worship center at church. All through the fall, we’ve kept the Communion table at the foot of the chancel stairs. In the past it’s been there only on Communion Sundays. It has an interesting cloth of various shades of green and two pillar candles, and each week I have put something on the table tied to the season or the day’s theme.
This week I had a lot of vegetables to bring home.
This afternoon I picked up more butternut squash, with the idea of making roasted squash soup as our pre-Thanksgiving dinner.
Pure Luck said he would prefer pizza.
I considered the evening of other cooking ahead of me. We’re not hosting a meal tomorrow. But we’re making another batch of rotmos to take with us to Pure Luck’s people. And we’re bringing cookies, too. Neither preparation has begun yet, and it’s 5 p.m.
Snowman reminded me that it’s traditional to call City By the Sea Pie Company on #1 Son’s first night home from college.
We’ll have soup on Friday.
