Checking in

I wanted to check in and say hello. I know everyone is busy getting ready for the holiday, grocery shopping, digging out the family recipes, decorating, cleaning the silver - does anyone do that any more - I always knew the holiday was close when my Mom would break out the silver, it was my job to clean it. Memories...... both my Mom and Dad are not with us anymore but their love of the holidays will always live on with us. My folks were both wonderful cooks and I can still see the two of them in the kitchen on Thanksgiving, each with their jobs to do. Mom making her famous dressing (to this day it is the best I have ever had) and Daddy lifting the huge turkey out of the oven to baste. My sisters peeling potatoes and me stirring the giblet gravy for what seemed like hours. Then we would sit down to a wonderful feast to share with all of our loved ones. What a warm and lovely way to share the day. Oh and don't forget all those delicious pies my Mom would make - pecan, pumpkin and even the mincemeat.

I hope for everyone that their Thanksgiving is a memory in the making.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
