I offered to cook a Thanksgiving feast this year for my family but my offer was kindly rejected by parties who preferred to go to a buffet at Woodfield Country Club, one community over from where we live in Boca Raton, Florida. Since eating at “the club” offered very little in the way of gourmet content, I decided to devise a game where you, the reader, would look at a plate assembled by a family member and then try to determine whose plate it is. To be fair, you should get a look at my family first. I’m not in the picture because I’m taking the picture, but you know who I am, don’t you reader?
From left to right there’s my brother, my father, my mother, my grandmother and grandfather. In front of them is a spread purchased by my mother from Publix.
“Don’t make fun of my spread on your website!” intoned my mother.
And so I’ll remain silent and let you click ahead to play “Whose Plate Is Whose?”
Welcome to “Whose Plate Is Whose?” The way we play the game is very simple. Simply look at a plate and try to figure out whose plate you think it is. When you think you know, click the plate to reveal the answer. Are you ready? Here we go!
How did you do? Did you get everything right?
Obviously, lots of the plates looks similar (there were only so many things to take). But there are subtle differences. For example: the amount of food taken, different parts of the turkey (white meat, dark meat, wing, leg), different animals (someone had ham!), different applications of condiments (someone used gravy!) and finally odd incongruities (someone put eggplant on their plate!)
But it was, indeed, a lovely Thanksgiving. Even if the meal wasn’t homecooked, I was happy to be surrounded by my family. Hope everyone out there had a Happy Thanksgiving too and here’s to surviving the winter ahead!
