Thanksgiving Eve

A cold front is blowing through Decatur as I write this blog. That's really more like the weather to be expected -- with tomorrow being Thanksgiving. It's been in the 80s for the last week!

I would have liked the 80s to stay another day, however. My wonderful son-in-law was going to help me put up the Christmas decorations tomorrow (meaning he does about 90% of the work). But the weather is supposed to be cold and windy tomorrow, so I don't know if that is going to work out or not.

I do want to wish everyone a fantastic Thanksgiving. Enjoy the food. Enjoy the football. But most of all, enjoy each other -- and be grateful. God is SO good. And we are So blessed.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food? Give me a part of the meal and a dessert. Here's a chance for some of you who are bashful about leaving a reply to join in. Mine is my mother-in-law's dressing (I like the drier, crustier part best) and pecan pie.

The taste of the Huskers beating the Buffalos.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who read this blog.

My favorite part of the meal ..... potatoes au gratin (w/o onions), rolls dripping with butter, and pumpkin pie piled high with Cool Whip.

I don't even want to think about Christmas decorations.

Brisket and a yummy chocolate dessert.
Happy Turkey day!

Dressing, gourmet potatoes, rolls, and pumpkin and pecan pies -- just to name a few! Everything tastes better with my precious, sweet family!

Boiled Yukon Gold potatoes with salt, cracked pepper, butter, sour cream, and milk whipped in the mixer while they are still molten hot. And for dessert, chocolate pie!

My mom's homemade merange pies...usually chocolate and coconut! (My mom can cook!)

As tempted as I am to make a comment about you being drier and crustier, I won't.

A fried turkey is my favorite if it's available, otherwise I really like dressing and cranberry sauce. I'm not the dessert freak I once was but mom's lemon icebox pie is still my favorite.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Growing up the best part of Thanksgiving was quail hunting with my father, grandfather, and uncle. I'm partial to pecan pie and pineapple baked ham as well

We actually have chicken and dressing. That is, the chicken breast strips are cooked in the dressing-- it is delicious! My mom has taken the torch from my grandmother on that for Thanksgiving. My grandmother still cooks it for Christmas Day lunch.

I've also grown more adoring of ham than turkey, but I do enjoy a heavily seasoned injected fried turkey.

We put up our outdoor Christmas lights yesterday (on Thansksgiving eve) as the north wind was blowing up my backside. It was exhilarating!:)

After Thanksgiving lunch and the Cowboy game, we're off to the deer lease with Shelly's mom and dad for a couple days of camping and hunting.

Merry Thanksgiving to all!
