Mom Dot Blog Party: Day Four

DAY FOUR QUESTION:

What is your favorite holiday recipe? Describe your holiday table, biggest holiday cooking disaster.


It's *well* known throughout my family that I don't cook, so I'm usually the one delegated to bring something cheesy, like juice boxes or soda. It makes me feel like I'm 10 years old, but it's the way it's always been. My one sister has Mac & Cheese that she makes every year, my other sister can make all kinds of dishes, and my mother is an awesome cook, and even my 'little brother' gets picked to bring something better than juices boxes or soda! And then there's me! LOL.


Our holiday table is always filled with all sorts of yummy food -- Turkey, Stuffing (my mother makes really good sausage stuffing), glazed carrots, home made mac & cheese, cheesy green beans, home made mashed sweet potatoes, and lots of delicious desserts -- pumpkin pie being my favorite, of course.


The biggest holiday disaster would definitly be the Thanksgiving my father caught the Turkey on fire and singed off some of his eyebrows. We have pictures (I wish I had them on this computer!) of a smoke filled kitchen and my father left standing there holding the flaming turkey. That was a very memorable Thanksgiving!


I can't wait to read about all the yummy foods I know you girls can cook!

I hear smoked turkey is actually good. :)

MMJ said...

OMG at your father's singed eyebrows. How scary!

Staci said...

At least you don't have to do a ton of work, just pick up juice and enjoy!

I would've cried if someone caught the turkey on fire. I can't imagine!

I often got stuck with the dumb store bought things when we went to Hubby's family celebrations because we were coming from out of town (and staying at a hotel). I'd usually bring it and something else. Then they realized that I could still bring something yummy even if I was staying at a hotel.

Branch out! bring the juice and pick something else up at the store too! Or bring some really cool juices!

Ouch! Burnt eyebrows had to hurt. After the shopping posts and everyone else being so organized made me feel inadequate, it's good to hear that lots of us don't cook.

I've lost eyebrows before, but I believe it was just a tuesday, not a holiday. :) Here's My Day 4!

How in the world do you catch a turkey on fire?

Erin Tales said...

That sounds like something out of a movie! The turkey is on fire. LOL!

Allison said...

Don't feel bad... I am the one who brings the rolls and alcohol because I don't cook as well! There are more of us out there than we know LOL!

Melissa said...

I would love to "just" bring the juice boxes!

Stephanie said...

Juice boxes sound good to me! Your dad is a crack up. How on earth...?

Drew Versak said...

no one can make sweet potato mashed potatoes like me! don't5 hate =)

Cathy said...

Your poor dad! I'll bet after you knew he was ok, you all laughed! Something to talk about every holiday....

Natalie said...

I hope I do not catch our turkey on fire this year! It is my first time to cook a turkey...oh lord now I have something to fret over...

Nanny A said...

Guess your dad is in charge of making sure the fire extinguisher works yearly :)

Splurge on some fun juice boxes this year!

Tena said...

your looking at the juice boxes the wrong way... think of it this way, if you ask the kids what is important they would say juice boxes, so really their whole day depends on you! Big task you have been given, be honored!
HA HA HA

Tracye said...

Awwww! Buy something, pass it off as your own, and just bring it!

Minxy Mimi said...

Sarah said...

Ok, is it because you don't cook or because you haven't found "your" dish yet? That's just wrong to be put on JB duty!

Momstart said...

juice boxes are still yummy
