Ritualistic Suicide Post-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Dinner

In 1970 Yukio Mishima committed seppuku. The comrade who was supposed to behead him screwed up a couple of times before passing the sword off to someone more competent. Check out Mishima's only film over at UbuWeb. (Have I already linked to this?) Based on an excellent short story of the same name. About ritualistic suicide.

Which has nothing to do with tonight's meal! Prepared and cooked for four hours, had a lovely time with relatives.

Mashed Potatoes
Baked Acorn Squash, Turnips, Granny Smith Apple, Brussels Sprouts, and Cranberries with Fresh Thyme, Olive Oil, Maple Syrup, and Lemon Juice
Pumpkin Bread
Pumpkin Pie (Crust and Filling)
Chocolate Chip Cookies Stuffed with Oreos

Grandma requested the cookies and made the squares. That woman has a sweet tooth like hell on wheels and it ain't once in a blue moon, etc.
