Friends, food, football, family

As we left the wedding, we were handed a little Krispy Kreme donut. I’m not a huge fan of Krispy Kremes – or any other donuts, for that matter – but I thought it was cute.

My mom made an ass-kicking strata for breakfast this morning. I recently had a second piece for lunch.

My friends and I are having our own little Thanksgiving dinner tonight. We often get these ideas in our head, ideas that usually involve us cooking massive amounts of food.

Since getting up at 9:00 this morning, I have made four pies (2 pecan, 1 pumpkin, 1 apple), stuffing, applesauce and cranberry sauce. I still have to make pumpkin bread pudding. And maybe help my cousin Anna, who is joining us for our little friendly Thanksgiving, make her vegetable.

Before we take on our bread pudding and veggies, Anna and I are heading out to the bar where the UM Alumni Association gathers to watch football games and watch our Wolverines (hopefully) spank those Michigan State University Spartans.

I’ve never gone to an Alumni Association event before. I have no idea what to expect. Hot MBAs? Crusty, old goats who cannot quite tear themselves away from those four years spent playing Frisbee on the diag and cramming at the UGLi? I’m just hoping that the event is light on creeps. And heavy on the fun, preferably.

While we’re cheering on the boys in maize and blue, I think we’ll have some nachos. I am certain that they are a specialty of the house, seeing as how it is an Irish pub and everything.

We’ll come home after the Wolverines have clinched the victory. We will complete all necessary preparations for our feast, and head on over to Lucy’s. Dinner is at 10:30 pm, just as Chet is getting home from work.

I expect it to be enjoyable. In addition to really, really delicious.

I cannot believe that we’re making a Thanksgiving dinner. We’re so, like, old.

I'm sorry, but you can't just be throwing out words like "pumpkin bread pudding" without also positng a recipe for how said pudding is created.

Come on now...
