Thanksgiving dinner was delicious. The turkey was juicy and flavorful accompanied by mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, green beans, corn, and cranberry sauce. And of course rolls. So what was so "Christmas Vacation" about the dinner? The rolls. Not even kidding. But let me set the scene.
The table is brimming with food. Everything looks delicious and smells heavenly. My hubby is to my left, my daughter to my right. My SIL, niece, and "the cousin" grace the other seats at the table. We're passing food and filling plates. I ask for the rolls. The hubby starts poking fun at the shape of some of them. My SIL, who baked the rolls, explains that the cellophane stuck to the dough causing them to be misformed. Reasonable. I take my roll. It looks a little brown on the bottom and feels a little ummm hard. No biggie. A little butter or gravy will cure that. I place my thumbs on the bottom to separate the roll. My thumb implodes the roll as bread crumbs fall onto my mashed potatoes. I get the roll open to find an outer shell with little interior. The husband looks at me and says, "Griswold Rolls." ahahahaha
For those who don't understand the reference....here the clip from the movie:
Do you have a funny story of something that was said or done at your Thanksgiving? We'll definitely remember the "Griswold Rolls."
Peace and Joy,
