This dinner was made when there is a broken pipe in the basement of our rental. We were told to use the kitchen sink as little as possible until it is fixed. This is when I am thankful to have a landlord that takes care of what is broken, but I am not the homeowner so I don't have to pay for the repairs.

I am thankful for all my electrical kitchen servants. It is much easier to cook when you have the correct tools!

I will pick some frozen veggies tomorrow from the freezer so we add some veggies to the menu. Ram will make the turkey and gravy and I'll help if he needs me to.

The menu is not all Paleo. It made it so much easier to purchase pies. I figure we can cheat a little on holidays.

It has been many years since we have had Thanksgiving dinner with my parents. We are looking forward to a day of church, relaxing, and eating!
