How to have a phenomenally brilliant Thanksgiving Dinner all by yourself while in NYU Grad School thanks to the "mail-able" food your mommy sent you in a very large love filled package! This will teach one how to have a memorable Thanksgiving dinner in a very small Harry Potter like closet of an apartment in the East Village. This is not sad! This is fabulous! And it just adds (and pales in comparison) to the many crazy bizarre moments in my life. it can now be a part of Jen Raines' amazing history....and it's a beautiful story to tell my future children who will undoubtedly be aware of how insane their mother is......
First step, Enjoy the adorable card with my favorite animal on the cover that was sent to me by my sweet sweet mother.......
Clearly, also read the inside of the card. Cry a little. Or a lot, and immediately call Mother to thank her. Especially for memorizing part of your favorite long listed order from Starbucks.
To begin, unpack the joy!
Ooooo pretty decorative stickers, most assuredly meant to decorate the table.
Give the stickers love and think of how rockin your mother is that she knows the bliss of stickers will never leave this 7 year old in a 25 year old body.
Obviously, one must become slightly intoxicated on Thanksgiving like they would with their family. Or not so much because of the tiny little cute bottles. How brilliant are they?!
Unpack the fresh from the bogs cranberries. Pretend it is a gourmet relish.
What?!! Its homemade stuffing!
These took hours to prepare. I am surprised they made it 1,000 miles in a box still fresh.
Pumpkin in a can for pies!!!
The only way to send milk and eggs for the pie. Incredible. Didn't even know they did that to eggs.
A necessity. matching plates.
Mouth watering mostly.
Continue to unpack and find yams!!!!!
Don't forget to shuck the fresh corn.
The Irish would love this invention. INSTANT!
