Remember how I couldn’t decide? How I was all “good light/bad light” about them?
And I was all like….I can’t decide.
And then I was all like…..I hope you have a big opinion.
And you were all like……of course we do.
Because that’s what friends are for.
I need it again.
I really need another big opinion.
You see…..my mother-in-law might be coming for Thanksgiving.
And I am blessed with one of the best mother-in-laws on the planet. She is amazing and wonderful and creative and I adore her.
But let’s face facts…..having your mother-in-law coming for Thanksgiving dinner is a game changer.
I have only had her over for Thanksgiving dinner once before.
The year I cooked the turkey upside down and made cherry bread instead of cranberry bread.
Not my finest hour.
But that was then….and this is now.
And now that I am all grown-up and making my own pecan pie and granola without kitchen sinks in it and homemade apple walnut cranberry bread….I’m feeling a little more confident. I think I can do it. I think. I am practicing and Cracker Barrel does have a great take-out menu.
But I still think I might need a plan B.
A plan B.
I’m going to distract her with my incredibly brilliant and creative…..
Does it get any better?
I didn’t think it did and I was so all about them when I first saw them…..and then actually I made them.
And now I can’t decide.
I can’t decide if this is the perfect centerpiece for a mother-in-law Thanksgiving or if it will just remind her of brussels sprouts or the time I made her birthday cake and stuck these fancy long candles in the cake while it was still hot and when I cut the cake there were long strips of wax inside.
Now do you see why I need your help?
So I am cordially inviting you and your big opinion to my Thanksgiving table.
And can you please bring the turkey?
