I hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving

I certainly did. I was invited to dinner with friends (it’s pretty much a standing invitation). Marion couldn’t come (she’s visiting a friend in Florida), so the invitation was passed on to my daughter, who decided to come with me.

I was responsible for bringing a vegetable dish, so I decided to bring a sweet-and-sour broccoli dish I ran across at a holiday party last Christmas season. It’s pretty simple, and turned out well.

I didn’t participate in the conversation much – almost all of the other guests were all neighbors of my friends, and most of the discussion topics involved local zoning issues. Many of the rest were political jabs and one-liners, and I didn’t want to ruin the mood by trying to talk with people who use the phrase “the Bush regime” unselfconsciously.

It was a good meal, though. I like these people, and I don’t see them nearly often enough.
