Gee. Griping is no way to start a Thanksgiving is it?  So enough of that.

We're short of family today so we'll take a couple of friends out to a hotel spread. Missing my kids.

Heading home last night, I heard a talk show caller say that his family's feast included cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese AND corn on the cob as starchy side dishes. I'm a purist. Dressing is enough.
