Ugh, the holidays
My apologies for there not being an update to Blane’s story for a few weeks. The holidays are hard. Last year, I was getting a divorce after twenty years of marriage. I know things will get better, but it takes time. Sometimes I’m too much into my own head to climb into Blane’s, so please be patient with me.
Although my kids weren’t with me on Thanksgiving, I did still make my traditional dishes, minus the green bean casserole (which I never liked anyway). The turkey turned out perfect. I’m a briner. I always brine my turkey the night before. Last year, I kinda forgot to empty and wash the thermos container I used. It hasn’t been opened in a YEAR. I’m thinking I should just let it remain closed and buy a new one (only thirty bucks on Amazon).
