With so many “Thanksgivings Past”,
you’d think I’d have an overload of turkey tales to tell.
Well … let’s see.
Around here, we’ve had some terrifically. tasty. turkeys!
That’s probably because “thankfully” (no pun intended) …
Hubs is the bird cooker at our place … not me.
Hey now … I do make a mean green bean casserole though,
and I’m expert at finding great deli side salads!
I read once where someone well known
said “I don’t cook … I buy pretty food”.
It was probably Erma Bombeck or maybe Mary Engelbreit ?!?
I say “I don’t cook … I buy great food and serve it beautifully”!
I remember my mom worried about how her food would turn out.
Funny, no matter how much my dad grumbled about things …
he always chowed everything down quick enough.
Mom was a good cook. She needn’t have worried.
Things were always tasty.
I do remember one holiday meal.
My cousin June and I were squished together in a chair,
in the front room, plates on our laps … laughing and being silly.
Okay, I know
some most of you are thinking I was goofin’ off
and dumped my plate or some stupid thing.
Nope, fooled ya! I took one big bite of mom’s mashed potatoes
with all that great gravy …
and I passed out!
NOW, there was absolutely NOTHING WRONG with ma’s potatoes …
except, I tried to eat them when they were too hot and it made me faint.
Here’s what I blogged around this time last year.
Thanksgiving for the Kids
Sometimes the little kids get lost in all the holiday hoopla.
Maybe these could help.
And This Project works for any occasion.
I used mine last year for Thanksgiving.
So there you have it. Some Thanksgiving throwbacks.
I wish for all
a Safe, Warm, Wonderful and
Later – Cheryl
Enjoyed this.Had a beautiful day with family at Marianne and Georges place. Three little gr great grandchildren were with us.
