Our Dinner was Exceptionally Good

No, I'm not bragging about my own cooking. It takes little effort to put a turkey in the oven and let it self-baste for three hours in a cooking bag. The mashed potatoes, dressing, candied sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, various salads I've made hundreds of times. My only problem was the gravy, this turkey didn't have any broth to use. So I used chicken broth and the gravy was good. For dessert we had pumpkin pie(me) and pecan pie(Jay). We watched the Detroit Lions get beat, by the Chicago Bears. Nope, I wasn't surprised, but it was a very close football game. Photo: Mine

a little bragging can't hurt anyone. How come you can't be overjoyed over a job well done.

Whenever I do things, my first inclination is to look for what I did wrong. Jay corrects me for doing this, it's a bad mindset that I have.

@kobesbuddy It might be a habit you need to break. Time is all you need.

@sharon6345 I agree with you, Sharon. A bad habit of thinking negativity, about things that I do.

I thought I would do a pumpkin pie this year. Don't think I have seen a roasting bag before. I am only having a small turkey cut this year, so I don't think I need one
