The Worst Thanksgiving Dish I've Ever Had

The plate was filled with perfectly moist white turkey.  The stuffing was perfectly seasoned and still steaming on my plate.  White, fluffy mashed potatoes were piled high with the hot gravy spilling over.  The vegetables were cooked to perfection and added beautiful color to my dish.  And for dessert, an American tradition, homemade apple pie.

    And, there was an audience of people.  Waiting, watching for me to take even one bite.  Wondering if I struggled with just one bite, how long it would take me to eat the entire plate of Thanksgiving feast.

      There was no hot roll, with butter melting from the heat.  There was no fruit salad that tastes like dessert.  There were no finger foods like sliced cheddar and black olives.  There was no fresh lettuce, no toppings for any lettuce, no vinaigrette dressing.  And for dessert, there was no pumpkin and no pudding pie.

        What a nightmare.  I'm so glad that never happened.
