On Thanksgiving I think back to a dinner I was making for my entire family in my small condo I had just bought in Des Moines. I was a fairly new single Mom and my son, who was in Kindergarten, was watching me prepare the feast. One of the dishes was sauteed pearl onions which called for frozen onions; Birds Eye brand to be exact. Well after my son watched in horror as I made the turkey dance around the kitchen trying to be funny, he was pretty much transfixed to what I was doing in the kitchen.
Dinner was very cozy in my my small dining-living room. Everything really turned out nice when suddenly my son let out a huge yelp, “nobody eat the onions, they’re bird’s eyes!”
Every time this year I remember that dinner and just get a huge chuckle.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
