I love Thanksgiving – spending time with family and amazing food! What more can you ask for? I don’t remember a time when I didn’t enjoy the Thanksgiving feast – dressing and potato salad are two of my favorites.
Briar and Brad, however, are very picky eaters. They aren’t picky about the same kind of food either – I always have to fix something extra for one of them. I’ve been told not to do this, that when they are hungry they will eat. But they won’t. Briar and Brad are both as stubborn as they are picky.
For Thanksgiving dinner at my father-in-law’s house, Briar fared a little better than Brad. He filled his plate with turkey and mashed potatoes. Brad had corn and a roll.
For supper, we ate at my parent’s house. While the food at my father-in-laws was good – nothing beats the spread my mom puts out. Again, there wasn’t a lot that Briar and Brad liked. Briar ate ham this time. I wanted Brad to have something more than corn again, so I fixed him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
About the time Brad set down to eat his sandwiches, Georgetta, my sister-in-law, asked the kids to say what they are most thankful for. All the responses were the same… family, except for Brad’s. He paused and said, “right now… I’m most thankful for peanut butter and jelly!”
