De Ja Vu! Thanksgiving Dinner

Last Saturday morning, fourteen Varsity basketball players came to our house for a “Breakfast Feed” before a big game.

I spent two days preparing for the meal, on top of three trips to the grocery store. The menu included three egg casseroles, a huge bowl of fresh berries, custom ordered waffles complete with syrup & whipped cream, sausage, cinnamon rolls (more on those in tomorrow’s post), and gallons of fresh orange juice.

Those boys ate the meal in fifteen minutes! I timed them.

I felt just like I do after Thanksgiving dinner…days of preparation. Gobbled up in fifteen minutes.

And then…just like after Thanksgiving, they had to get on to the important business of watching sporting events on television.

All that remained were dishes.

Mountains of dirty dishes.

But…the boys (if you could call them boys. One was 6’6″!)…well, they won their game!
