Thanksgiving with Mom

Everyone arrived when was expected. Almost on time, for a change. We asked if we could be of any assistance, did anything that was asked of us and then settled in to play with the kids.

Mom arrived for our family celeration. She went to the kitchen to drop food off and ask our hostess where to put everything she brought. She had deviled eggs and a dish of…… !?! Sorry I cannot remember. Mom needed a dish for the deviled eggs.

Our hostess handed her the egg dish. She looked on the counter for the filling. Our hostess, mom and I started to giggle. Mom forgot the filling for the eggs! We had 24 egg halves and no yokes.
