We ordered from Longfellow’s Wayside Inn: delicious New England Clam Chowder, turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, stuffing, gravy, and a pumpkin pie. It was advertised as a meal serving eight to ten people. We had only four, my husband and me, and our son and daughter-in-law, but the Inn’s website reminded us, we could always enjoy the leftovers. And that, we are still doing!
I’m grateful for the meal but also for the ease that I felt as I set the table and cleaned up. Enough, as far as I was concerned, for any person on a given day. I’m grateful because I was relaxed, as were the other three celebrating with me. I think we all noticed that in ourselves and in one another.
