It's okay to be imperfect.
One year I decided to make a pecan pie. I followed the recipe exactly, except when it came time to take it out, it was still jiggly. So I put it back in and baked it some more. It took a long time, but finally that pie was cooked through and no longer jiggled. Turns out, it's supposed to jiggle, I guess. I couldn't even get a knife into it. We banged it on the counter just to see if we could break off a piece.
The holidays are a lot more enjoyable when we realize they aren't going to be perfect and we can laugh at ourselves.
Got any laughs you want to share?
