Butterballs on the Mountain

Maine Biker Chick “tagged” me with this questionnaire. I’m not sure what that means but if it’s anything like kissing tag on the playground with Peter Jamison in first grade, sign me up (though my hunky hubby is the one who’s always “it” these days.)

What is your favorite current Thanksgiving tradition?

Bustin’ our big ol’ butterball butts up Turkey Trot trail. This rigorous hike is not far from our house and we’ll be dragging our little butterball, Haddie, up the mountain this morning.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition of all time?

My family is very gourmand when it comes to food but our main tradition was transforming the rolls into charcoal. Every year, we would spend hours slaving over the turkey, veggies, salads, etc. and would stick the rolls in the oven just as we were sitting down. It never failed. Just as we would get to dessert, a layer of smoke would fill the room and one person would start sniffing, then everyone, “Oh nooooooo, we forgot the rolls!”

What is your favorite non-dessert item to eat at Thanksgiving?

Rolls (when not turned to charcoal) and Jamie’s jalapeno stuffing!

What is your favorite dessert?

DUHHH! Pumpkin’ pie!!!!!

Do you participate in any Thanksgiving charity functions?

Have you not seen this family? My duty is done….

What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten for Thanksgiving?

Black licorice pumpkin pie.

Does your employer compensate you in any way for the Thanksgiving holiday?

Hadley is the stingiest boss I know and does not give me the day off. In fact, she will soon be kickin’ my butt up a mountainside.

If you could change one thing about Thanksgiving, what would it be?

Make it earlier, like in October. Oh wait……maybe them thar Canucks are onto somethin’….
