Oh, the Horror

I can't believe that I have let a Thanksgiving pass without consuming a single roll.  It's tragic.

Tragic in a totally made-up, drama queen way, of course.

See, the MiL's sister makes these crescent rolls for every single holiday.  They're some kind of overnight risen thing.  I don't know how they're made, and I don't really care.  All I know is I could eat the whole basket by myself and consider my meal complete.

But this year I wasn't sitting at the table with the basket of rolls in residence.  I was out on the porch with the kiddie table.  And my own kiddie, of course.  Someone brought out the basket of rolls and passed them around.  I took one, tore it in half and gave one half to Cubby.  Then I shoveled in my dinner while trying to placate Charlie, who was not so happy because it was approaching his bedtime.

Then Cubby asked for another roll, so I gave him the other half still on my plate.  And I never got another, because shortly after making sure everyone in the family got their pie fix (with brownies for me, because I don't do pie), we had to race home before there was a complete baby-related meltdown.

And so, my Thanksgiving was entirely roll-free.


We're going to my sister's house for Christmas again, which means I have to wait until Easter now to get another shot at the rolls.  And that makes me very, very sad.

How was your Thanksgiving, duckies?  What's your favorite food to consume in mass quantities?

Stuffing. It has got to be our mother's recipe stuffing. Yum.

Major bummer about the rolls.

I feel for you, my Thanksgiving was Cranberry free. My mums makes the worlds best cranberry relish and she and my father celebrated their 39th anniversary this Thanksgiving (they got married on Thanksgiving when they got married) and decided to spend it quietly and not dealing with my MIL. Those rolls sound delish.

My own strawberry-rhubarb pie, of course!

Freaking gravy, man - GRAVY! I don't eat it at all the rest of the year, but on Thanksgiving, it's ON. My Sister in law makes it and it's heavenly. Heavenly gravy. Heaven sent, heavenly, lovely, fatty gravy.


And rolls - although this year, mine didn't rise so we had bread. I just told everyone to deal with it.

Kiddie table, huh? The kids shouldn't even get a table - they are done in, like, 5 minutes!
