I’ve been meaning to write this for a few days now but have gotten routinely sidetracked. This is one of the few Thanksgivings where a turkey was eaten instead of a ham.Anybody who knows much about our family knows that this almost borders on sacrilege. The other major difference was that I actually got to spend some time with a person who is not either living here and or related to me . It was pleasant to say the least , turkey notwithstanding. That having been said I am well aware that some people reading this know me well enough to automatically start thinking of playing 20 questions. Yes you are entitled, eventually just not right now. I promise you will know when it is okay. This month seems to have been one for unexpected things falling in our laps, both positive and negative. Hopefully the person who decided to walk into my life just is a very important one exited will decide to stay for a while, at least I hope so.

What’s best between two pieces of bread?
When my mother was enlisted in the Army it fell largely to my dad to play Mr. mom. To quote an episode NCIS he was a “domesticated househusband“. At that time we had a sandwich press and one of my favorite afterschool snacks was a pizza sandwich. They’re not difficult to make, your basic sandwich is spaghetti sauce a slice of cheese and three minutes in the press. If you don’t have sliced cheese grated works just as well and you can even add any of your other favorite toppings to taste. Who needs delivery?
Yesterday my caregiver treated mom and I to Chinese food. On the way there she asked if we would rather go to Arby’s for roast beef sandwiches. I now know we should have taken the roast beef. Not only was the service horrible and the wait staff rude, the food was definitely not anywhere near as good as advertised. To make matters worse something I ate definitely does not agree with me and I will probably be taking a lot of Imodium for the next couple of days. Yep I definitely think next time I will go for the roast beef especially since they didn’t have hot and sour soup at all which I think is my favorite Chinese dish to have during winter.
