Trains… no planes, and an automobile

Standard

Due to an odd confluence of events, I am not going back to Minnesota this Thanksgiving. Instead, I am taking Amtrak (leaving in three hours) to Chicago where I will meet my parents and sister for a family weekend in the Windy City. Because I’ll be on a train during traditional Thanksgiving meal gorging hours, I am bringing with me my own meal — sliced turkey, “cranberry celebration” (cranberries, pineapple, and walnuts), some buns on which to make a sandwich, mashed potatoes (in tupperware), miniature sweet potato and pumpkin pies.
This is not the Thanksgiving meal I’m used to, but it’ll do.
Happy Turkey Day, everyone!

  1. Oddly enough, I *am* spending Thanksgiving in Minneapolis! Hopefully when you get to Chicago you can find some traditional leftovers 😉
    I’m actually also going to be in MN/WI Dec 27-Jan 4. Will you be around?
