A Thanksgiving MeMe from  Nessa who said this:
I looked around for a Thanksgiving MeMe and I didn’t like any of them exactly the way I found them, so I did some turkey style carving and loaded my plate with what I wanted.

1. Where?
At my house for the first time in many, many years We usually go to my brother's where there  is a group of 25 or so. They had to be out of town this year so we will be at my house with a smaller group. Word about my cooking must have gotten around.

2. What?
Pretty much the traditional meal....turkey, dressing, mashed potatos, sweet potatos, green beans, cranberry sauce, corn casserole and lots of pies. There may be some extras that  those who have heard about my cooking but decided to come anyway bring for their own self-protection.

3. Who?
There will be 10 for dinner, my youngest daughter and her family, my cousin and his family and Doc and I. There will be 8 more for dessert, my son and his family and my oldest daughter and her family, and 2 for a glass of wine on the way off to their dinner that I didn't cook. 

4. When?
Dinner at 3 p.m. and dessert at 4:30 or 5 until it is all gone.

5. How?
That is the question I have been asking myself.

Thanks to Nessa for this fun MeMe.

The truth about my cooking is that I can cook, I just don't do it very often these days, so I just have to get my head in the game and it will all be great. And, if I do say so myself, I make the BEST pies, from scratch, crust and all. I wish I could share of piece with all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving


  1. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Everyone is home, we don't travel, and no other family comes over. We eat tons and sit around in our PJs all day long. Have a happy!

  2. What's your favorite pie to bake from scratch. Do you have a GREAT pumpkin pie recipe to share? Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Europe. Have a great one!

  4. I lOVE Thanksgiving. Any time you dedicate a day to celebrating the blessing of food - well, I'm all over that and very thankful.

  5. Fun answers. I use mega lists to stay organized (and my to cut up all the veggies.)
