Sure I've made fun of them in the past, but let's face it, they're great girls. You know one of the things I like best about them? You can count on them for food.
Today is Thanksgiving, and Tim and I were planning on having dinner with some of the other Americans at Bocconi University. We don't have an oven, so we initially thought turkey might be hard to have. But, a friend of a friend offered to bring a turkey, and stuffing. Hooray! It's Thanksgiving!
At 6:30 p.m. she called and said transporting a cooked turkey is too difficult. So she and her friends aren't coming. Now we're left with more vegetables than we can eat but no turkey and no stuffing. That's a vegan holiday, and we're no vegans. A holiday isn't a holiday without some dead animal to eat. Luckily, I stopped by the grocery store today and bought some dwarf turkeys (i.e. chickens), so we'll have something. But still.
So that's what made me think of the Catholic Daughters. If they said they'd bring me a turkey, I'd know for sure I'd be getting a turkey. They like cooking, and like having people eat the food.
Update: Thanksgiving ended up going very well, after all. Details tomorrow...
