Today was spent mostly in getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner.  I made creamed onions using Velveeta as the sauce base, and Marisa's brother Sean -- whom I had consulted about how to melt cheddar -- didn't identify it as counterfeit, so I guess I disguised the Velveeta flavor well.  I also made egg nog.  Rich made devilled eggs, Gloria brought a low-carb pumpkin cheesecake, and they baked a turkey for leftovers (not to bring).

The party was at Sean's future in-laws' house, and there were 17 of them plus the three of us.  Christie's uncle Dee made the biggest impression  because he got a little tipsy and talked about the mortuary business and made some racial slurs on basketball players, but we all agreed he was a likeable guy anyway.
