Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope y’all are set to have a wonderful day with loved ones, reflecting on what a wonderful life we’ve all been given!

I found this Norman Rockwell painting on Pinterest… From best-norman-rockwell-art.com.

Do you ever wonder what other folks are feasting on for their Thanksgiving meal? Here’s our menu this year, along with the names of the folks preparing each dish:

  • Turkey (smoked by Daddy!)
  • Dressing (Uncle Craig & Family)
  • G-F Dressing (Daddy)
  • Cranberry Sauce – No kidding: we actually eat this out of a can – no changes made. It’s one of probably 2 or 3 foods I can ever remember eating like this regularly… (Mama)
  • Green Fluff – You know… That delicious, unidentifiable green fluffy stuff that’s served cold and probably has Jell-O and marshmallows in it… It’s amazing. (Mama)
  • Broccoli Souffle (Aunt Carol)
  • Rolls (Aunt Carol)
  • Sweet Potato Casserole (Grammy)
  • Fruit Salad (Grammy)
  • Squash Casserole (Grammy Evelyn – Haha, yeah, we call both grandmothers the same name… So, I have to delineate by adding one or the other’s first name…)
  • Pies – Possibly chocolate pie and caramel pie??? (Great Aunt Lou)
  • Pecan Pie (Aunt Carol)

Since the menu was shared by the whole family, each household only needs to prepare a dish or two. Plus, this way everyone’s able to contribute. It adds that special dynamic of family recipes and memories…

    I’m printing this out, sticking it on the fridge (along with the deplorable pic of that poor dead pre-butterball turkey) and nodding to it each time someone makes a snarky comment about my cooking. Next year, I say with a self satisfied glint in my eye, Next year we’re doing this!
    This is genius! I’m doing it…they all need to make their own in-house traditions. And I, need to put my feet up!
    YES!
