Happy Thanksgiving

The day started out with the large turkey breast roasting in the oven and the smells of other side dishes drifting through the house. Ahhhhh it does make you hungry. LOL John and I had planned on 15 guests and borrowed an extra table and chairs from Bob and Marcy. Mid morning Mike and Leslie arrived and brought an extra table to use for the buffet line. They also helped with decorating, table settings, gravy making and turkey carving. Thanks so much Mike and Leslie. Your help was greatly appreciated and your company very much enjoyed.

Our Thanksgiving Menu:

  1. Turkey and Dressing
  2. Ham
  3. Broccoli & Rice Casserole
  4. Corn Casserole
  5. Green Beans
  6. Vegetable Casserole
  7. Fresh Green Salad
  8. Creamed Potatoes
  9. Yeast Rolls
  10. Pecan Pie
  11. Pumpkin Bread
  12. Banana Pudding
  13. Apple Pie
  14. Yellow Cake with Chocolate Icing

The final count on the guests rose to 18 but we were able to accommodate everyone. We all gathered around as Bob gave the blessing and the feasting began. There was plenty of food to go around. My thanks to everyone who brought side dishes. They were all very very good. Some of us decided to eat dessert right after the meal and others……well……..we had to wait a awhile. LOL

Annie and Terry left early to visit Terry’s mother Ina Jo who has been in the hospital for three weeks with pneumonia and a heart attack. We still pray for her continued recovery. She is in a rehabilitation facility and has had some good days and bad days.

Several other guests also left early to visit with other in-laws. Soon there were only Bob, Marcy, Mike, Leslie and John and I. Since there were just a few of us we decided it was a good time for some 10 Penny. You know the ladies needed a rematch!!!! LOL Unfortunately….. the men beat us again!!!! Oh well, there is always next time.

At the end of the day we realized we were so busy visiting that we forgot to take pictures.

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

Remember to laugh everyday. Happy Trails. Stay Safe.
