The One Auntie Who Can’t Cook But Pressures You To Eat Her Food
I think Thanksgiving should be the one time that folks don’t try to experiment in the kitchen. Knowing that you’re going to be feeding a slew of picky people, Thanksgiving dinner is like Amateur Night for folks trying to prove that they can cook a little somethin’ somethin’. You don’t want to get booed out the house now. If you know you’re no Julia Childs in the kitchen, just do everyone a favor and bring liquor or dessert. But every so often you’ll have to deal with that one auntie, or even sister, who can’t boil an egg but wants to be making mac and cheese for the whole family. And when you discover that it tastes like crunchy cardboard and pass it over for the REAL food, she starts pressing you and everybody else to dig in and get seconds. One day someone will need to break it to her that cooking is not her strong suit, but until then, spread that mac and cheese around when she’s not looking and set your eyes on dessert.
