FORTY-THREE FOR CHICKEN-CORN pie! It's a growing number! It's hard to tell how long The Yard Man's extended family members will be able to squeeze themselves into one house for the traditional Christmas meal.
As if making those pies was not in itself a monumental
job, she had also cooked home-grown green beans with garlic.
And she had at least a gallon of lovely golden chicken broth
sitting on the stove ready to be made into gravy.*
Not to mention, of course, those forty-three place
settings in the basement!
*This Merry Christmas-
Chicken-corn-pie-eating family fiesta to be continued.
We've got music and dancing, and I've got one more savory little
detail to add to the meal.
