About 2pm Jan and I headed up I-45 to League City to have Thanksgiving Dinner at the Cracker Barrel. Jan was hopeful that by getting there after 2 we wouldn’t have too long a wait. But when I caught with her after dropping her off while I parked, she sheepishly said, “An hour and a half”. But at least there were plenty of rocker openings.

Cracker Barrel Crowd

And lucky for us (and Jan) they lied. It was only 40 minutes until we were called in.

Don’t know why they even give anyone menus

Cracker Barrel Menu

Everyone’s pretty much there for the same thing.

And even better is was surprising how quickly it came out. We were served only 10 minutes after we sat down.

Cracker Barrel Thanksgiving Meal

So it’s Turkey & Dressing with Gravy, Ham, Sweet Potato Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry Relish, Pumpkin Pie, with Biscuits and Cornbread Muffins. And a drink.

All for $12,.99. A really good deal.

As we were finishing up, our waiter brought our our Pumpkin Pie.

However I thought they were a little chintzy on the Whipped Cream. It should have looked more like this.

Pumpkin Pie Done Right

There is actually pie under there.

As we were eating I told Jan that it would have been hard to beat this with most homemade Thanksgiving meals. She agreed and said even better she didn’t have to worry about this.

Thanksgiving Dishes

Previously the one thing that Jan didn’t like about eating out for Thanksgiving is the fact that there’s no leftovers for the next day, for turkey sandwiches, etc.

So we solved this dilemma by ordering two more Thanksgiving meals to go. Now we’re all set for tomorrow.

When we left about an hour later they seemed to be just as busy as when we got there so I don’t think waiting until later would have really done any good. But the 40 minute wait we did have wasn’t too bad.

Our next stops were at my client’s to pick up the Pumpkin Bread that the Office Manager had given me on Wednesday which I forgot to bring home. Then it was the CVS right down the street before heading home.

A very nice, tasty day.

Amazon’s started their Black Friday Sales early and I really liked this

Pretty neat, and you can check it out. Pretty for those of you who have dogs at home.

Though I guess it would work with cats, too.

They’re also have a great deal on their Echo Dot, Alexa’s little brother.

Normally they’re $49.99, but now they’re only $29.99,

We’ve already got one, but that price is so good, I almost bought another one.

I’m not working tomorrow so I’ve got a nice long weekend off. Yah!

Why be difficult, when with just a little more work, you can be impossible”
