Food Coma Day

I am just now trying to think about holiday cooking....and I just have to is hard to get my thoughts and feelings geared up for it.  I found a couple of old photos of the food from a couple of years ago.  Katy and her family won't be here for Christmas this I really should try and make the best of Thanksgiving.  I have to keep telling it for the grands.  Maddie is at an age where she loves to help in the kitchen, so I think that will be one way to push my thoughts in the right direction.  I gave up trying to feed large crowds of family a few years ago, so  I don't need to cook for anyone but us.  Katy and I had talked about just going to Bob Evans for a meal....and I haven't completely ruled that out yet.  I am pretty sure they would have just about everything I would prepare anyway.  We could come back and watch National Lampoon Christmas Vacation if we thought we were missing out on large amounts of family.  I wonder how many of us actually have an "Eddie"  in our family.  I do...but I don't think I have ever spent the holidays with them.  Yes...there are more than a couple of Eddie's in my family.

Katy and I had a craving for a nice breakfast yesterday and never made it out in time.  So this morning we were determined to go.   We were all starving and on Sunday morning it is crowded.  We had no wait as far as getting seated went...but getting our food seemed to take forever.  The kids started out being really nice and just sitting there coloring.  The longer it took...Kayla started eating the crayons and we had to take them away and then of course crying was the result.  Trying to entertain her with songs and other activities only lasted a minute or so.   Maddie became restless and started crawling under the table looking for food.  (We think)  Mom did come prepared with snacks to hold them over...but they were gone pretty quickly.  After we convinced Maddie that the floor was pretty creepy she started playing the drums with the straws.  (Notice the happy couple sitting next to us.)

Then Kayla started taking her shirt off.

Why....why can't I take my shirt off.... there's nothing else to do here. ?!

By the time we got the food...they weren't all that hungry and kept wanting to put salt and pepper on their french toast.   I told Katy on the way I remember why I always cooked every meal at home.
