DC has been counting the days waiting for Thanksgiving to arrive and just know that he would never imagine keeping me out of the loop on this…… daily/hourly/every few minutes.
I do have to say that his ‘Thanksgiving’ pronunciation has improved over the past year but “firsday’ is still ‘firsday’
I am not really sure why he looks forward to this holiday so much. He will eat turkey (preferably with bones) but other than that, there is really nothing else “Thanksgivingy” that he will eat.
Turkey and bread. That is about the extent of it and honestly if there are no bones (legs or wings) to be had, the bread is really the main event. He will eat the turkey but he is not very excited about it.
Last year, he skipped the turkey entirely and went with prime rib – a big switch for him!
Stuffing? No! No way!
Funny thing about stuffing, though…. he will not touch it! Every year I tell him that stuffing is made from bread (as the song below tells us). Every year I tell him that when he was little, he would not eat chicken or turkey, but he loved stuffing.
I tell him that he loved stuffing so much that I had to buy stuffing on a regular basis and hide chicken in it to get him to eat chicken or turkey. He loved stuffing and hated chicken.
Now-a-days as we all know, he eats chicken almost every day
or “Chicken with bones and sprinkles”
-although I’m sure the wings will do in a pinch.
“Sprinkles” being Mrs. Dash Seasoning.
But he will not touch the stuffing.
He does look forward to seeing his aunt and uncle. He enjoys staying in a hotel.
And there’s dessert. We can’t forget the dessert.
Or the bread..
But NO stuffing…
Happy a Happy Holiday!

We have gotten so used to what our son will and will not eat- I don’t bother with arguing over it. Chicken is a huge favorite. Hope it was a great holiday.
We did. Thank you! Yes, his menu is limited and I don’t push him that much … but he’s more open to trying new things than he used to be – which does not mean he’ll like them. Hope you had a nice holiday too.
We did, thanks.
