Happy Thanksgiving!

Tonight we’re having our family feast. But this morning I’m going to the high school to the twins’ Life Skills Class for a pre-feast! Their special education teacher is amazing and the class puts on quite a spread. She goes way above and beyond. Before I leave to go this morning I’ll put my own turkey in the roaster.


The rolls are made, all the pies and the Cherry Fluff.  The green beans are ready to go. I wanted to get more done yesterday but I’m fighting some sort of sore throat thing again and just didn’t have the energy. So today I’ll finish up the corn pudding, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing. Yes, this is a carb-filled feast. Oh. Yum.

Food is a funny thing. I’ve noticed that it puts all the men in my life in a great mood when I’m in the kitchen cooking. I get more hugs and kisses. Whether we like it or not, we humans do equate food with love.

  1. We like traditional dressing at our house. We had a wonderful time at my daughter’s home yesterday. When everyone grew quiet for a moment at the table, my son said the sweetest thing, “I look around this table and I’m so happy that we are here…together… I love my family.”
