We pride ourselves, here in Suburbia, with the high level of dinner table discourse we achieve.
For example, tonight’s conversation included the following erudite humor.
Two muffins are baking in the oven. One says, “Wow, it’s getting hot in here!” And the other one says, “Oh my goodness! A talking muffin!”
Or try these to liven up your Thanksgiving meal.
What side of a turkey has the most feathers?
Why did the turkey cross the road?
Because the chicken had the day off.
Soccer Boy noted that he thought that joke was funnier when he heard it with the elephant crossing the road, but that wouldn’t be quite so applicable now, would it?
All that Thanksgiving talk inspired me to get to work on some of the preparations for next week. Our plans include traveling to see my family, so I’ll have less cooking to do this year than last. I’m taking along streuseled sweet potatoes and a couple of pecan pies, and Adventure Guy will be frying up a turkey once we arrive.
Obviously, the pecan pies will have to wait until next week, but the sweet potatoes freeze well. I tackled those tonight, and it’s nice to know that part of the meal is ready and waiting. If you’re interested in the ins and outs of deep fried turkey, those instructions can be found along with the sweet potato recipe at the link above.
