Brother invited us over to Thanksgiving dinner, which was nice. I asked if he wanted us to bring anything and he said sure, whatever we wanted. I said I would bring potato salad. Mom asked if we could take her onion pudding. I said okay. Mom doesn't cook anymore. Her vision and cognitive impairment from stroke make it hard for her to see quantity and measure things. So guess who's making the onion pudding? Plus, of course, the potato salad I want.
So today brother calls Mom and she asks him if there's anything else we can bring. He asks that we bring dessert. Now Mom wants to bring two homemade pies, too! As if she's making them! We are leaving early AND having family over tomorrow! And whatever we bring, I still need to go to the store.
My husband said to buy it all store made. I think I might. But I am amazed Mom would volunteer me this way. This is a first.
Isn't Thanksgiving fun?
