What did/will you celebrate with today?

Our table included:
Ham
Slow Cooker Oregano Potatoes
Sweet Potato Casserole
(here- but modified greatly http://blissfulyogajourney.blogspot.com/2015/09/vegan-mofo-share-something-vegan-with.html)
Green Beans Vinaigrette
Brussels Sprouts
Rolls
Cucumber Tomato Salad
Apple Cobbler/crumble - (whatever you wanna call it)
Assorted beverages
(Proper dessert still to come later - brownies or ice cream bars : )
And you - what's your holiday menu?

As it happened, we had a last minute change of plans, since DD has been sick & we couldn't go out. I'm not into the Thanksgiving holiday, and just try to make it nice for DD- and I thought we needed something more than being just-us-at-home.

But it turned out to be great. DD LOVED helping me cook- so much so that she said, "I hope this is as fun to eat as it is to make : )" And we've really enjoyed our little family day at home.

Howabout you?

I had a green bean/tofu/mushroom stir-fry, mashed potato w gravy, stuffing, and cranberry salad. That was more than enuf for me! I don't really need the stuffing AND the potatoes, tho'.

Sounds pretty yummy! I never thot of stir-fry for Thanksgiving! (Tho I have a friend who was hosted by Chinese-Americans one year for the holiday, and they had potstickers and a variety of other traditional Chinese foods : )

Is your DH well enuf to eat? Were you joined by anyone else? (since you said "I," I'm wondering)

I thought about mashed potatoes - I don't make them, I buy them ; ) but decided the other potatoes would go over better with the family : )

Honestly, Thanksgiving was not a good day for us. :( Dh had said some things that did not go down well with me. I slept in the guest room (a first) and then went off to work this morning without seeing him. :( He kind of demanded i "wash the dishes before coming to bed". There was a lid to wash. It would've been easy enuf but..... sigh. It was the principle of the thing! I washed the dishes this morning - after emptying more from the fridge and lunch bag. Ugh.

He said he prayed "for hours" last night and he is much better today. He is never a good communicator but he's been absolutely awful this week! I just don't feel i can play into it.

Now things are looking sketchy for getting to Spokane on monday! We have 4 cars. Dd totaled hers so we gave her one to use. Grandson's is in the shop so we gave him another one to use. Now dh's is in the shop waiting for a part with instructions NOT to use it! That leaves mom's 2 seater!!! We needed dh's or the one dd is using to get the 4 of us to Spokane on monday with the 2 dogs and a bird!

The Lord knows what's going on, right? Big deep breath. And dh said not to stress. If nothing else comes up he'll ask for a ride to Spokane from ds or ? Just relying on our Father in Heaven to work this out as He has so many other details. (*I* just like to know the plan ahead of time!!!)

Isn't Monday his procedure?

Call your Church and ask them to help you find a ride.

Call this number & ask for help.
https://www.cancer.org/treatment/support-programs-and-services/patient-transportation.html

Call the hospital and ask for advice.

All else fails, call uber.

I'm SO sorry you're both dealing with all these difficult emotions right now :cry:

Lots of prayers.

Uber - $150. I didn't even know we had Uber around here except one for the college. It's about another $100 for an XL and i'm not sure they'd transport animals! :lol: I think things are working out, tho'.

I wish I could come get you! (Tho, to be fair, my car couldn't hold you & your pets even if I COULD drive over there to help!)

$150. isn't bad, considering :geek: But, I appreciate that unaffordable is unaffordable.

I'm glad things seem to be working out. :)

If all else fails, you can rent a car/van for a few days, if the budget allows.

Also, any neighbors or friends who might pet-sit?
