We are going to be with friends and neighbors on Thanksgiving. Our family is up north. We celebrate the holidays before we head south. I miss everyone but what I miss most is cooking the meal. Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite and in past years I always had the dinner at my house. And the more the merrier!
I usually had 3 kinds of stuffing, 2 or 3 types of tea breads with cream cheese or butter, a relish tray, rutabagas, butternut squash, mashed potatoes, creamed onions and pies! We could hardly move after dinner.
I don’t do the turkey any more. I roast a chicken. Sometimes because it is just the 2 of us, I get bored with turkey leftovers so with the chicken I get the same holiday feeling. I only make 1 pie and 1 bread but the rest is still good. I like both kinds of cranberries – the sauce and the jelly.
Setting the table is one of the favorite parts of this holiday as well. I used to have my mother’s dishes but those I passed on to my niece. I probably won’t have time to polish the silver but you just never know.
Look for the table on Wednesday but I will give you just a peek!
Maybe by Wednesday this horrible head cold will be better and I will be able to decide which flatware to use.
