Thanksgiving began early this year. On Friday, we had our company Thanksgiving lunch/teambuilding day. I don't know how well the team was built, but the lunch was pretty great. It was mostly potluck, and I apparently work with a number of folks who have been blessed with above-average culinary skills. Most importantly, one of my co-workers (in addition to having played football for both Tech and the 49ers) has a catering business on the side, and he brought the turkey and dressing, including a mouth-watering Cajun dressing.
But that's not all. We also had our Apartment Life pre-Thanksgiving Potluck on Saturday night, and several of our neighbors brought some yummy dishes. (These helped to soothe the pain of the Tech game that afternoon, as did Auburn's Iron Bowl victory.)
So, I have just a few days to recover before the Thanksgiving (proper) onslaught. Because we are fortunate enough to live fairly close to several sets of relatives, we are going to hit three Thanksgiving meals in two days. I'm already planning the massive exercise initiative that must commence next week, lest I need to shop for larger clothes.
