Thanksgiving in Recovery

This has been an atypical Thanksgiving for our family. Since my mom is recovering from hip surgery, we made reservations a month ago to eat our meal in a local restaurant that had a Thanksgiving special. The reason was two-fold: we didn't want Mom to over-exert herself (and weren't certain she'd allow us to do everything for her) and we didn't know if she'd be able to manage the steps up to my Dad's apartment, which has become the default place for family gatherings.

How did it go? And did I find a gluten-free meal?Collapse )
