Hi Everyone it’s Friday can I get a WOOT WOOT? Because this week has been insane and I cooked enough to feed the small army that shared our holiday with us. Let me just run down the menu.
Turkey, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, deviled eggs, fresh veggie tray, candied yams, green bean casserole, corn on the cob, cranberry tray ( jellied and berries), yeast rolls.
Then came the home made deserts- pumpkin bread, chocolate chunk cookies, peanut butter cookies with a kiss, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, French Vanilla Bean Cream Pie.
Yep, I cooked 3 days straight, set up tables re-arranged furniture and thanks to my daughter and husband we cleaned the funk you find when you move your furniture 1 time a year.
Sat down at the table with My husband, My daughter who came home from college, The 9 yr old prince, my Mom and a nice lady named Sue who just moved to the coast and has no family. She is a neighbor of my Mom’s . Absent was my 19 yr old son, but he called me that morning. My Dad and Step Mom stopped by. All in all it was really a wonderful day. Last year I had a friend from England as a Thanksgiving guest as we had him skype into the meal. ( not fair he couldn’t taste it), and I also had the serious medical condition of a dear friend over shadowing my every thought.
Today we were all relatively healthy, relatively happy, and seriously over fed. We are grateful for the ability to have the food to share, to have our home to make the food and to have the family and friends both new and old.
