Conspicuous Consumption at Thanksgiving

Being the devotees of conspicuous consumption that we are, we purchased a Rival 18-qt. Stainless Steel Roaster at Target in advance of this year's holiday season.

This is the first year in a LONG, LONG time, that the holiday meals will be prepared at our house. It will be Hubby, me, the two kids and their spouse, granddaughter and daughter's father and mother-in-law. Although the father and mother-in-law are really laid back and easy to get along with, I wish they WEREN'T coming but we've set this tradition now and we'll have to live with it.

At daughter's house where this has happened the last couple of years, she had a table large enough for all of us. It was the plan to bring that table here but there is not time now. Hubby will borrow a table and some chairs from work and that will take care of it.

Anyway, we were glad to purchase the little Roaster to help spur the economy on.
