…trix are for carbon based lifeforms
The folowing is a reposting of a comment I made on another blog. The initial posting was about how great it was to eat Thanksgiving leftovers on “Feasting Friday”.
There will be no leftovers at our house. Before we ever wed, my sweetie and I decided that, as is our whimsical nature, we would never have a traditional thanksgiving dinner at our house. In 13 years of marriage, we have eaten turkey dinners twice, both at my sister’s house.
At our house, we have had lasagnas, roasts (both beef and pork), curries, seafood, spaghetti, tacos, frittatas, Docburgers (compared to a Docburger, a regular hamburger is as dust to diamonds), chicken and dumplings, ribs of all sorts & styles and, once, an entire table full of nothing but extra scrummy finger foods.
Most years, it’s just the two of us and a dog or two. My family scatters to the four winds and my wife divorced her family years ago. Most of our friends live too far away to visit, or are busy with their families.
This year, in open defiance of the shitty economy in general and our personal Adventure In Poverty in particular, we are having a full blown steak dinner with all the trimmings. The dogs will be dining on Dogburgers (almost as good as Docburgers, but for dogs)
On Feasting Friday, we’ll be back to mac & cheese and Top Ramen.
