So what do we do about food, because Thanksgiving is nothing without food, or so I'm told. Turns out, there is quite the market for this conundrum. We aren't the only slackers who don't want to cook Thanksgiving dinner and there are plenty of places that will do it for you at an affordable price. We decided on Fresh & Easy because they offered the best variety for sides and we love their freshly made food. I've never eaten anything I didn't like from there and it really is Fresh and Easy. Decisions about food are always critical for my mom but when it's Thanksgiving, it's really serious business and this was only going to work if my parents were okay with it. There were a lot of text messages back and forth and at one point I thought we were going to have to cook but it worked out.
We got our tree two days after Thanksgiving which is a big deal because we get it later and later every year. Last year I don't think we got it until the week before Christmas so I was determined that we not procrastinate. We really have no excuse because the tree farm we use every year is right across the street. We drive by it on our way home from work every day. We walk to the ATM if we need cash, walk across the street to the lot and then MJ carries it home. He remembered to bring his gardening gloves this time. We got a really good tree. The shape is perfect and with the decorations it looks about the same as it did last year and I love it. The four day break lasted a really long time which was great. I think that's what happens when you don't pack a lot into it. The only thing we did was go to the movies to see Mockingjay.
The thing I will think about more than anything else is who I spent it with because it's just food, and people are infinitely more precious than macaroni. I think everyone can agree on that.
