This year, I'm having only those things I like about Thanksgiving for Thanksgiving. That means mashed potatoes and stuffing, asparagus, steamed green beans, pie (probably cherry) and bratwurst.
What? You don't eat bratwurst for Thanksgiving?
Or maybe I'll go get some fried chicken in the hood the day before. Cold fried chicken with all the trimmings....or barbecue. Hmmm. Barbecue for Thanksgiving.
No matter how the food works out, the evening's entertainment will involve going to see "Burlesque" at the movie theater/bar/restaurant here in town. Nothing could top a quiet Thanksgiving in like Cher and Aguilera in spangles.
