Have you ever been to a Thanksgiving dinner, where an argument broke out about the food?
There was this one time in the early 80s where two aunties both brought potato salad..
That was something similar to a modern day standoff 🤦🏽♀️
Yes! Once back in college. There were about 12-13 of us “thanksgiving orphans” invited to a professors home. A vegan was there and was complaining about “contamination” the way things were prepped and the host (professors wife) should have prepared a special meal for him.
Just all around disrespectful and blatant narcissist.
Wow! That’s rude of them!
Put a carrot on the plate with a peeler.
Yes, because I cook a lot of was critical at my sons house. His wife uses a moisture meter to test turkey doneness. When the moisture is gone it is done! If I complained it upset my son so I stopped complaining.
But over the yes I keep my trap shut and enjoy the day.
Probably better, but they should have listened to you
Some people have a problem with doneness. My mother over cooked all meats. Worried about getting ill on under done meat. Same with sons in-laws. Any pink is raw to them. Juicy is underdone. They are from Ecuador and are used to stewing everything. They eat little or no vegetables either. Meat and rice.
I wont eat your plain dressing and you don't eat my Oyster Dressing and we both will have more of what we like.
My relative is a very unstable person and I lost count of how many times they stormed off at a holiday dinner because someone asked a simple question about the food. One time they forgot a key ingredient to a recipe and no one said a word for fear of another blowup.
Criticism is so unbecoming. Don’t eat it if it is a problem.
They forgot sugar in the pie.
I’m anti sugar myself. I don’t put it in applesauce or apple pie. A 5 lb bag of white sugar will last a year here. Not in coffee, or tea or iced drinks. I gave up sugar 50 years ago and don’t use it. I don’t eat dessert to often. Pretty much the same goes for salt. A pinch goes a long way.
There has never been a fight.
But there was that one time when everybody’s sullen look could not hide their disappointment with the standing rib roast which I had slathered in wine. It tasted like a dry drunk’s favorite meal. They did mention they wanted turkey next year.
What was I thinking. Hungry family members drove hours in LA Traffic, only to face a rib roast for T Day. They actually voted to have my Aunt plan the next years meal!! I was deflated.
No, there was one dinner when no one ate the deviled eggs other than my uncle who tasted one and immediately drank an entire glass of water. Someone accidentally used cayenne pepper instead of paprika. 😁
Everyone except my uncle was laughing. 😂
That’s what makes holidays memorable.
Yes, no one will forget that one.
That's what he said. 😂
Is that the reason why your family needs a Deviled Egg permit.
We just keep making them illegally. 😊
No, have you?
No, but my brother in law unplugged the basement refrigerator, and the turkey went bad, luckily the it was the day before Thanksgiving and we were able to get a turkey, we still harass him about it! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
