Grandma Helen at Thanksgiving

Words mean things. I say what I mean. Let me repeat: You don’t need to bring anything means you don’t need to bring anything. And if I did tell you to bring something, bring it in the quantity I said. Really. This doesn’t have to be difficult.

If you’re unfamiliar with Margaret and Helen, they’re two charming old ladies who keep a blog together (although there is a question about whether or not they’re real). Helen has a really amazing Thanksgiving letter she posted for her family on the blog. “Salad at Thanksgiving is a waste of space.” Agreed!

What?? I am serving a salad with roasted pears, blue cheese, hazetnuts, and pommegranates and I can’t wait.

@OllyOlly Okay, MAYBE I’d put that on my plate (no, I’d put that on my plate that sounds great).

@Mike Dang My brother used to make this amazing Caesar salad with homemade dressing that was ALSO not a waste of space.

@OllyOlly Yeah, clearly she’s never met my family. It doesn’t matter how much salad you make, we will eat it all. And all the brussel sprouts. Everyone else will get a serving, of course, but after that all bets are off.

These women are my heroes. I can’t wait until I’m old and can get away with being that crotchety!
