Countdown to Stuffing our Faces and Something About Being Grateful.

It is the Monday before Thanksgiving, that National American Holiday of pigging out and oh, yeah,  something about being thankful.

Tuesday: I get to relax.

Wednesday: I’ll make the cranberry relish, the oranges in  syrup, put the green bean casserole together, and  then I’ll make the stuffing.

Thursday: the morning of the feast begins. I will throw the bird in the oven to roast.  I will be peeling potatoes for mashed potatoes. I’ll make the gravy. I’ll be making cornbread. I’ll throw the casseroles and stuffing in the stove to reheat. And then, we will in the immortal words of Dr.Seuss: “…we will feast, feast, feast!”

It is a lot of work, but I love it. Nothing is better than food, friends, and family! Unless it is that thing about being Thankful.

What are the reasons you are thankful? What is on your table this year?



I am me and nobody else. One of a kind just like the rest of the world.

  1. My husband has to work this Thanksgiving, so I won’t be cooking. We’re going out to a Thanksgiving buffet instead. Much less work for me but no good leftovers either. 😦

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

    1. We did that once or twice. I like the cooking and my daughter is helping so that is nice, 🙂
      You have a great Thanksgiving, too!

  2. You put me to shame, I have not put that much effect into a Thanksgiving dinner since……well never!! Did I hear something about coconut pie??? Now I am hungry, and exhausted from reading all the work you are going to be doing, your family is blessed to have you!

      1. I really hope your Thanksgiving dinner comes out GREAT! and I wanted you to know, I miss you so much!! Blessings to you and your family!

Got something nice to say, witty, silly, profound, demented, redundant or redundant? Go ahead make my day!
