Despite apparently being confused by my own numbering system this time last year, this was our sixth Thanksgiving since we came to the US.
It was the third time I'd delivered meals courtesy of the massive operation that is the Equinox Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner.
Like last year, the girls and I dragged ourselves down to the Empire State Plaza for about 6 am. I managed to get some pictures of the food packaging and address-packet pick-up areas this year:
We had eleven meals to deliver, split among three addresses. We made the acquaintance of some of our fairly-close neighbors in the line - even the most shy people can get into a conversation when hanging around with the same strangers for four hours!
We were quite hungry when we got home - which is good because Exile #2 had cooked a feast. This year's surprise - activity place-mats for the kids!
And yes, we had turkey and pies (pumpkin and chocolate). And no, we didn't have creamed corn, anything involving canned soup or marshmallows (although we did have some popcorn as an appetizer!)
We have a lot to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
