Hamburgers for Thanksgiving!
This weekend I was thinking about the Thanksgiving we had hamburgers for lunch. As I recall it was the year the kitchen was remodeled (early 1970s???) and Mother had gotten the new stove, cabinets, etc. It was when time bake ovens had just come out and she had set the oven to come on at like 4AM so that the turkey would be ready in plenty of time for lunch. When she woke up, the oven (and turkey) were still COLD which meant plan B since we were expecting several for lunch. Mother went to the ever-ready freezer and pulled out hamburgers and we had a small lunch and ate turkey late afternoon. I think those who came for lunch just stayed all afternoon for both meals.
