Mini-Giving 2012

Last year, my family decided that themed Thanksgivings is our thing now.

(It was Pie-Giving.)

This year was...


No lie. We miniaturized our Thanksgiving. Because we're pretty cool like that.

Want some pictures? Here you go.

The full table.

Strangely photogenic glass tankard.

My plate.

And, in case you can't believe how tiny this dinner was, here are some comparisons:

And here's the weird thing. The brain is funny sometimes. You hear diet promoters on television saying that eating off of a smaller plate with a smaller fork will make you feel full more quickly. We also had full sized versions of all of the food shown here, but after about a plate and a half of our mini-dinner, we were all stuffed. We couldn't even finish the food on the table. Apparently, that brain trick works.

The poor turkey took a back seat by chilling in the kitchen during the dinner itself.


Don't worry, though. There are six of us. All of the food will be gone in less than a week.
