Thanksgiving Dinner Guest Accessory


This photograph was taken at my home in Maryland.


The date was November 28, 2022 at 5:26 PM


The "Take It!" came after counting my blessings from having had Thanksgiving Diner at one of my Son's homes. I was invited to participate as a guest for the meal - as he is an excellent cook and enjoys preparing great food. I offered to bring two bottles of wine ( one red - the other - white ) along with two pies ( one of which was pumpkin ) this was to include aerosol whipped cream - lol. My offer was readily accepted.


I arrived at his home - and was warmly welcomed by my older Son Brad, along with his Wife ( my Daughter in Law ) Kathleen, and their Daughter - Gigi - who is my starlet Granddaughter.


I unloaded the pies from my car ( which were in one bag ) from the car - and had them received with thanks from Brad. I then brought in the pictured accessory - and was asked by Brad - what it was for? I responded with a straight face - It was for left over's. It was an extremely rare moment which found him speechless - lolol. Neither he nor I knew from where I conjured that quip - but it was good for a great mutual laugh.


The dinner was delicious, the company grand - and the bounty of left over's I am still partaking of - and may be able to consume all of them after feasting on them for yet another few days - from the container - contents.


Here is hoping everyone had a great Thanksgiving.


We have much to be thankful for (and that will be another story).


Wishing everyone my very best,

    I'd appreciate it if our dinner guests came prepared. I'm tired of buying new tupperware.

    Some time has passed since Thanksgiving - and all the leftover's have been savored as they were consumed ( for me - they were many tasty lunches as I ran my route in my car ). In hind sight I could have better labeled this photo/story as " Thanksgiving Dinner Guest Accidental Accessory " which would have clarified my lack of premeditated intent for the cooler to be used for leftovers. The whole event was ever so much fun. I hope everyone had a great time at their individual Thanksgiving Dinners. All my best Bruce
