Growing up in my parent’s house, when presented at the dinner table with a new or unfamiliar food, the household rule was that you are expected to (at the very least) try one bite. If you don’t like it, you force yourself to swallow it without a lot of drama or facial contortions and politely say, “I’m sorry, but I don’t care for that.” You were (and still are) to always respect the fact that our mother made a huge effort to shop for, prepare, cook and serve a variety of wholesome and tasty foods, day after day after day just for our benefit and enjoyment. And our mother respected that fact that trying to please the tastebuds of seven people every night was a daunting task, especially when little sister announced out of the blue that from here forward she would be a vegetarian and refused to eat meat, poultry or fish. But I do appreciate the fact that my parents exposed us to a variety of foods at the family dinner table and it not only enriched our lives but taught us to appreciate and respect each other, as well.
I’ve been busy cleaning house all day long, and I’m too tired to cook. So I sent my honey out to pick up some Chinese take-out. I’ve ordered a large order of beef lo-mein noodles and a quart of sweet and sour chicken. The chicken comes with a side of white rice, so that will actually last us through two meals for under $15.00. Not a bad expense for two meals for two people! I’m waiting for the food to arrive now – the table is all set and I’m ready to eat!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I had caught a bad cold and didn’t cook, or go anywhere. So I basically spent the day in bed watching television. But what WAS nice about MY Thanksgiving this year is that my folks cooked for me and brought me some food to eat, and filled my fridge with all kinds of goodies. So, this year I’m thankful for good friends and family who look after me when I’m under the weather!

I’ve seen this video before, but it still cracks me up. This is dubbed over to make it appear that the dog is having a conversation with his owner about food. When I showed it to my parents when they came over for supper last night they laughed like crazy too! So I decided to put it here on my blog to make it easier for them to find it from their place if they want to show it to their friends at a later point in time. So this is for you Mom & Dad!
