You Might Ask

Why were we eating Thanksgiving dinner on a random night at the end of March?

Well. What had happened was...

We were frying this fish up for The Coach's family when this baby decided to scream incessantly.

Since I couldn't get her to quit I figured I would put her in her bed so she could miserable without making the rest of us miserable.

I returned to the garage with the monitor and asked The Coach if I could unplug this cord..

He said I could because it was just his drill charger.

Ten minutes later I mentioned aloud that the garage fridge light had just burned out.

The next afternoon Ty came in the house and told us someone must have left the garage fridge door open because the drinks in there were warm.

I went out into the garage to investigate.

I plugged the drill charger in.  The fridge starting humming. 

Turns out I had unplugged the fridge.  Everything in the freezer was still frozen solid except for a fourteen pound turkey.  So, The Coach cut it up and put it in the crock pot.  I made, sweet potatoes, green bean cassarole, mac and cheese, and stuffing. 

And that my friend is why we were eating Thanksgiving dinner in March.  Isn't that what you would have done?

The good news is we got not only the catfish out of the freezer, but the turkey too.  Now I no longer have to open the door ready to jump to avoid a turkey on the toe.

Now if we could just rid ourselves of this duck.  Anyone like duck?

I think I may make this a tradition and just move it to April Fool's Day.

What stupid things have you done lately?


  1. I have done a lot of stupid things lately, but none come to mind right now. I was just mentioning to JP that I was craving a turkey dinner and thinking about buying the fixins next time we go grocery shopping. This post confirms my idea that it will be a fabulous idea! Turkey dinner here I come :)

  2. That is too funny! That marshmallow things looks delicious.

  3. Oh no! My husband is terrified that will happen to us. He says I cram too much crap in there. What he doesn't understand is that most of that "crap" is to feed him and his kids!

  4. So I guess the moral is, if you "accidentally" unplug the refrigerator, you get rewarded with a turkey dinner? That is so. Awesome.

  5. I've done the same thing before. But I am also known to have thanksgiving dinner in April. And May. And june. Etc. Because I love Thanksgiving dinner.

  6. Great idea for the turkey! I could eat Thanksgiving any day of the year. I'm now following you.
