Thanksgiving at our house is never like that Norman Rockwell painting. Not even close.
It’s always a struggle trying to meet everyone’s dietary needs. My daughter is a vegetarian. My son’s girlfriend is vegan. My son doesn’t care for turkey. He prefers Cornish hens. My wife prefers duck. I hate duck. My daughter’s boyfriend likes to have lamb chops for Thanksgiving. Seriously?
Everyone loves sweet potato soufflé except me. I loathe sweet potatoes. Everyone loves pecan pie except me. I can’t stand pecan pie. Nor pumpkin pie.
