My family and I do not celebrate many holidays, but one we do look forward to every year is Thanksgiving. Grandma brought her specialty, seven-layer salad. My sister Charity and my mom made turkey, mashed potatoes, and bread rolls. My youngest sister (who sells pies) made pecan, apple, pumpkin, and raisin pies, and chocolate chip cookies.
I made my super-fast homemade cranberry sauce and carrot salad, opened a can of green beans, a bag of frozen cream corn, and a can of pineapples, and set the table... This time, I adhered to tradition, resisting my e̶v̶i̶l̶ humanitarian urge to set paper plates in an effort to a̶v̶o̶i̶d̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶h̶e̶s̶ conserve water.
