A perfect Joel’s Gulch Thanksgiving…

Everybody’s gone to cities to visit their families, and later I’ll make the rounds to do their chores for them. 🙂

Now if only they’d stop sending me Happy Thanksgiving texts. 😀

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Perfect timing, Joel! A former client was just complaining his Turkey Day noon meal at the assisted living facility would probably be scalloped potatoes out of a box and SPAM. Let’s see if he has a sense of humor: I sent him the picture.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Joel!  My Thanksgiving Feast for one is meatloaf, baked potato, and Italian green beans, with a strawberry frozen fruit bar for dessert.
    Robert, I bet the former client’s dinner is sawdust dry baked turkey, syrupy sweet candied yams, that God awful green bean casserole everyone is enamored with and artificially sweetened pumpkin pie that someone dropped the box of ground cloves in.  Oh, and if they are serving broccoli, they boiled that until it is army green mush with no salt.  I am thankful I do not have to visit and eat dinner with any loved ones in an assisted living facility this year.

    “visit and eat dinner” I brought a KFC-clone meal with me; we shared.

    “dropped the box of ground cloves” As long as they remove it before cooking.

    I’ve seen the meals they serve; a bit better than the standard institutional fare, and WAY better than the execrable so-called food at his previous rehab-from-Hades-facility.

    I’ll have a meal update in an hour or two. Standby for news (apology to Paul Harvey)!

    Aside: our municipal school system chilluns and the jail population are offered the same meals from the same food service outfit. The meal descriptions are rather unappetizing. And people wonder why kids are unruly…

    Grilled a turkey thigh and then finished it in a large bowl covered with stuffing. Nuked a bag of pole beans, then covered them in cream of mushroom soup. Very good Thanksgiving lunch.

    Robert: – We always brought in dinner whenever we visited my great-aunt.  Her comment was, “Hogs are slopped better.”  She owned and operated several different restaurants and diners in the KC, MO area in her younger days, so she knew something about food service.

    There was one school district the kids were in; where I would put granola bars and such in their backpacks in case the meal was uneatable.

To the stake with the heretic!
