Ah, what Thanksgiving Day would be complete without trekking to the movie theater and watching a recently opened blockbuster? Like many others (and the Pilgrims before me), I celebrated the holiday by eating a lot of food and watching Harry Potter. Classic. So, my siblings and I ate our way through the turkey, homemade chicken and noodles, red cabbage, cheese potatoes, and corn pudding. We all passed on the scalloped oysters, though. It’s not my bag, baby. Then, as if we weren’t full enough, we partook of the pies. Oh the pies: pumpkin, strawberry-rhubarb, apple, and chocolate pecan. Did I mention all of this food was for about twelve people? Ridiculously delicious. After we were super stuffed, we sat around the house, mulling over if we had enough energy and motivation to actually make the drive to the theater in the next town. Turns out, we did.
