Roll with it

Thanksgiving is not one of my favorite holidays. The main reason is I just don't like turkey. I'll eat the dark meat, but I'm not a huge fan. I don't generally like gravy, sweet or mashed potatoes, so what's that leave me for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner? Green bean casserole (which I love), stuffing and rolls.

Speaking of rolls, there's an ongoing joke in our family about the Thanksgiving rolls. Every year my mom would spend all day cooking her ass off, and would finally call everyone to the table laden with this incredible spread. Ten minutes into dinner she's day "Oh! The rolls!" and run into the kitchen to the retrieve the rolls, now with black bottoms. She would always put them in the oven last while my dad was carving the bird, and never set a timer. We had many a Thanksgiving dinner with half-size rolls becasue she'd cut the burnt undersides off.

This year she bought cresent rolls. Yes, it's bread-in-a-can, but I love those things so I don't care. I'll just make sure she sets a timer.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Crescent rolls are the best. I just bought some for myself last night...
