Families That Dislike Each Other, Only See Each Other Once A Year

However, if you are unable to choose your biological family and you find them annoying or difficult to deal with, there are some things you can do to maintain your distance while trying to spend a bit of time with them.
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
There Is No Such Thing As A Stress-Free Holiday
It is a stone-cold fact that preparing a large meal is challenging for anyone of any ability. Cooking a turkey takes work. The time it takes to cook must be coordinated with cleaning the entire house—as well as setting the table and greeting early guests.

Goops Of Gravy
This woman is more than excited for Thanksgiving to arrive. It’s not because family, friends, and relatives are finally getting together—it’s because of one food item that probably unites most people on this side of the world—gravy.
Though mashed potatoes are also on top of everyone’s food list, along with green bean casserole, this secret sauce is what keeps Thanksgiving magical. Anyone who has tasted gravy knows it can be poured over more than nine different types of food. You’re only limited by your imagination.
Mind Your Own Plate
The spirit of Thanksgiving requires that we all stuff ourselves with mashed potatoes until we no longer can’t. It is unbelievable that some people cannot wrap their heads around this tradition and even judge those who choose to eat their way through the holiday.
This classic response comes highly recommended if you find yourself being judged for your gastronomic choices. It’s a free country, and as long as the food is also free, no one has the right to stop you from doing what you want.
Who Wants To Be Healthy On Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving food was not created to keep people healthy—it is a special meal designed to overindulge guests and family members during the cold season. It is not a sin to slather butter, salt, or cream on any Thanksgiving meal.
However, it is a sin to make mashed potatoes out of cauliflower. Such travesties do not belong on the Thanksgiving table. Feel free to eat your cauliflower mash after Thanksgiving. But keep your healthy-only foods off the table during this time of year.

Bring A Roll
This meme offers sound advice and a warning to anyone who thinks they have the best Thanksgiving recipes. If you are being told to bring rolls instead of real food, take it as a hint that the food you cooked last time might not have been palatable.
Still, we believe this is good news considering that you’re still being invited to participate. Maybe there is still hope to spruce up your cooking skills in the future. You have until next year to practice. Maybe surprise them with a salad next year.
It’s not a Thanksgiving dinner if there are no leftovers. However, some moms use leftovers as an excuse to give up cooking for a while—which is quite justified. Still, why would anyone want to cook when tons of fabulous food is still available?
Why not get creative and make your very own cranberry sauce sandwich with a side of cold turkey? You can also pour gravy over anything, and it will taste delicious. Remember, you’re only limited by your imagination.
A lot of people love the idea of making Thanksgiving dinner. Either they enjoy the art of cooking, or they simply prefer to be in control. Either way, both denote that you are willing to put in the work necessary to make Thanksgiving fun.
