Is anyone else considering NOT cooking for Thanksgiving?
Every year, I spend a week planning the menu, cleaning house, riding roughshod over everyone to get the dining room *just so*. I spend $150+ at the grocery store and 2-3 days stuck in the kitchen cooking and prepping everything. Everyone whines all day long about how LONG till dinner, grabs their plates and eats for 15 minutes, then disappears, leaving me with all the cleanup (which can sometimes take me another THREE days to get done.) And at no point in that does anyone even thank me for my effort, offer to help cook, or clean up. I usually end up w/ people whining about the way the food tastes! By the end of the day, I'm frazzled, exhausted, in tears and feel utterly unappreciated and UNthankful for the holiday.
I'm so tempted this year to just buy some turkey TV dinners and call it good.
