Two cans of Cream of Mushroom soup, celery, cider, two pounds of sausage with fennel — ah, it must be Thanksgiving. The above photo represents Bossy’s store list, which is partial, as it does not include pie ingredients for Bossy’s daughter.
For years which slipped inside decades, Bossy has been hosting Thanksgiving dinner for at least thirteen people at her house. Bossy insists upon this task and quite enjoys it, where enjoys it equals bring wine.
It’s not the cooking that stresses Bossy out, but the lack of space in Bossy’s shoebox diorama. In fact, furniture needs to be carried in and out of rooms as the Bossy family transitions from eating copious amounts of food around the coffee table to eating copious amounts of food around the dining room table.
And the kids, who are no longer kids but teenagers — there’s no room for them around the main table, so they are reduced, quite literally, to a hastily-carried low children’s drawing table with matching low chairs. The kids in Bossy’s family don’t so much eat Cholesterol Casserole as eat their knees.
Bossy can sum up the Bossy Thanksgiving experience in this way: Would it have killed the builder to enlarge some rooms?
