After I excitedly spent months planning my first Thanksgiving as the cook, I was slightly disappointed to recognize that NO ONE else in my small family cares nearly so much about the food. "Food is just food" my father-in-law is fond of saying. Now as I plan the first big Christmas feast, the only thing any of them agree on is buying a ham. My heart is close to being broken, because that is not the direction I was planning on going in for Christmas. It is not that they don't appreciate all the gourmet things, but most of them could care less if I made things from scratch or a mix. The positive person in me thinks that at least I have it easy, i.e. no expectations or exacting palates to please. I however can't help feeling like I am missing out on being able to share the enthusiasm for entertaining. If you were in my situation, what would you suggest? Divorce is not an option!
