Thanksgiving: Institution-Style


As a veteran of many hospital-based Thanksgiving dinners, I can tell you that the sun-lamp lit roast turkey slices tend to be dried out along with the savory (?) stuffing. Then there are the unseasoned mashed potatoes and green bean casseroles that are usually served colder than originally intended. The saving grace of these hospital cafeteria Thanksgiving dinners has been the standard and classic pumpkin pie. You can't mess that up.

This year was different.

Who would have thought that the Medical Director of our small community Emergency Department would cook for nurses and secretaries of the ER on Thanksgiving Day? He didn't just order it for us, he actually cooked it himself...

Smoked Turkey w/Gravy
Turkey Dressing
Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potato Casserole
Green Bean Casserole w/mushrooms and panko
Cranberry Sauce 
Apple Pie
Pecan Pie
Pumpkin Pie

OK, so he didn't bake the pies or rolls.

But how cool was the fact that he did this for us?

Very cool.

Thanks Dave.
