The 12 Days after Thanksgiving

While attending the Thanksgiving dinner at my Dad's house a few nights ago we became delirious from fatigue, turkuhnine, and WAY too many mash-the-taytuhs. While in our delirium, HubbaHoney, my sister and I wrote a song - we had to do something. So, here it goes. Sung to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas:

On the 1st day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: parts of a turkey and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 2nd day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 3rd day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 4th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: 4 cups of giblet gravy (sing like 5 golden rings), a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 5th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 6th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 7th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: sticky cornbread pudding, pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 8th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: soggy pretzel salad, sticky cornbread pudding, pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 9th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: sour vat of cole slaw, soggy pretzel salad, sticky cornbread pudding, pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 10th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: crusty greenbean casserole, sour vat of cole slaw, soggy pretzel salad, sticky cornbread pudding, pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 11th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: mound of candied yams, crusty greenbean casserole, sour vat of cole slaw, soggy pretzel salad, sticky cornbread pudding, pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.
On the 12th day after Thanksgiving I still had this to eat: stinky oyster dressing, mound of candied yams, crusty greenbean casserole, sour vat of cole slaw, soggy pretzel salad, sticky cornbread pudding, pile of mash-the-taytuhs, squashed cornbread muffins, 4 cups of giblet gravy, a spiral ham from Sam's, 8 lbs of dressing, parts of a turkey, and I could still smell my father-in-law's feet.


I know, I know. It's even better when we're singing it.

Eggnog
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eggnog (or egg nog) is a type of milk-based beverage popular in North America during the winter. Historically, it likely belongs to the posset family. But its actual origins, significance and, most importantly, ingredients are subject to dispute and conjecture. The name is a concatenation of egg and nog, where nog derives either from noggin (ale or a small wooden cup) or from grog (an alcoholic beverage made with rum). Most likely, eggnog originated in Europe. Another origin story has it that it was an occasional fortifying drink in the American colonies, who adapted it with cheap rum to make it a more formidable winter treat.

Modern eggnog typically consists of milk, eggs, and sugar mixed together and may be served with or without added spirits. Other ingredients include spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice, and frequently the substitution of cream for some portion of the milk, making a much richer drink. Other toppings are vanilla ice cream, eggnog flavored ice cream, and whipped cream.

There you have it....UJ
Or there you please don't have it...
