Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means one thing…
Every year countless kids try to do their best to help out with the meal prep and every year, someone inevitably pulls the neck out of the turkey and immediately thinks the worst.
And if mom and dad have a sense of humor, they’re going to run with it.
Or in this girl’s case, your family straight up tells you it’s a “turkey pecker.”
“Mom, I think it’s a boy.”
He wasn’t gonna be convinced otherwise…
Happy Thanksgiving everybody.
Miranda Lambert’s Bar, Casa Rosa, Giving Away Free Thanksgiving Dinner To First Responders
What a way to give back.
Miranda Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, are planning to give away free Thanksgiving dinner to any and all first responders in the Nashville area tomorrow and Thursday.
In a post on Instagram, Miranda’s husband Brendan, who is a former NYPD officer and was in service when he met her, announced that their Nashville bar Casa Rosa will have a full Thanksgiving spread with all the fixings available for any policeman, fireman or EMT who stops in while on duty.
As a former officer, Brendan noted how hard the holiday season can be for people in that line of work, as they often have to miss out on Thanksgiving and Christmas day celebrations with their friends and families.
He said that this is their small way of saying “thank you” and acknowledging them for all their hard work in keeping us safe day in and day out:
“Hey, what’s going on guys. Holiday season’s here, super exciting, get to spend it with family and friends. But I would like to take a quick second to show some appreciation to a large group of people out there.
If you don’t know much about me, I was a police officer in New York for almost 10 years, my mother, my father, my three brothers, Miranda’s father, all police and fire. Holiday season is such a great time, it’s just for first responders, we don’t get to spend every Thanksgiving and Christmas with our family.
So a slight way that we can give back here in Nashville is if you are first responder, police, fire, EMT, and you’re working in the Nashville downtown area on both Wednesday and Thursday, we would love to offer you Thanksgiving dinner at Casa Rosa.
Turkey dinner, all the fixings, everything you want on us. It’s the least we can do to say thank you for everything you do in keeping us safe and keeping up protected. Hopefully we see there, and I just want you to know how much we really do appreciate you. So thank you.”
It goes without saying, but every man and women on the front lines in law enforcement or working as a first responder/medic truly make it possible for all of us to enjoy this time at home, so I hope all of them in Music City have a chance to enjoy a great meal courtesy of Brendan and Miranda.
Thank you all so much for everything you do for us every single day, and make sure to stop by Casa Rosa tomorrow or Thursday for a break if you can’t be with your family for lunch or dinner:
“Happy Thanksgiving. This Wednesday and Thursday, we invite all local on duty first responders into Casa Rosa for a complimentary Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner.
Thank you to all of the police, firefighters, and EMT/paramedics that keep our community safe!”
