Linny t:
dishes to you make traditionally?

Sweet! We usually start off with relish trays,deviled eggs, chunked  fresh fruits drizzled with honey and dips,  and lil smokies. For dinner it's turkey, sweet potato casserole, fresh mashed potatoes with lots of butter, garlic and onion,  giblet gravy, green bean casserole doctored up with extra onions and mushrooms, a salad made from cucumber, feta, onions, and tomatoes soaked in a homeade italian dressing,  asparagus, traditional waldorf salad spiced with Saigon cinnamon and a little whipcream, fruited jello, and dinner rolls. My time to shine. LOL. Dessert? Pumpkin pie, and usually brownies or chocolate chip cookies. Although now that Diane mentioned chocolate cream pie, I think I must have one.

How about you? Everyone?

I will be hoping that the office is slow and that your boss takes mercy on you and sends you home early
 Thanks, Darlene.

I second that Linny.  People should have liberal leave around holidays.

Boy, is this site SOOOO slow this morning.

Tim's PT is here working with him and my Mom hired someone to come in and clean my kitchen floor for me.  So I can't be in the LR and I must stay out of the kitchen.  I am in the DR and thought I would go on line and catch up on things here.  But this is so frustrating that I think I will find something else to do.

Wishing you all wonderful time with family and friends tomorrow.

Diane,

I hope you have a blast!  You are an awesome lady who has so much love in your heart.  The way you give to others is phenomenal. Enjoy some of that chocolate silk for me.

Stephanie,

I hope your grocery shopping went well.  I know the store was probably very busy but you have to be an expert after working for Publix all those years.

Good Morning everyone,

I am a little late this morning.  Between by 12 hour nap and the site it's been a little hard to get to my daily post.  

I hope everyone is off to a great holiday.   I'm sorry Linny had to work, I know that has to be a bummer.

I slept in the morning with a little bit of a sleep aid so my day has not started a rapidly as I was planning.  But after the previous night being one of no sleep I just simply could not afford not to take something so I would get some rest.  

Our thanksgiving plans are the same as always.  We'll be at the in-laws for Thanksgiving.  Its as nice time.  It a fairly quite occasion simply there is only six of us and my girls are the only children.  With the girls being about grown things are fairly calm.  We chat and eat, watch the dog show and then head home before dark.   Making for a quiet day.  Then we come home everyone eats whatever they want, leftovers, sandwiches, junk food and we settle in and watch It's a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart. 

On Friday I'm planning on going to see my mom.  Hoping she'll be in the mood for a little company, she seems like she's been a little depressed this month so maybe we can boost her spirit a little.  Then it will be the weekend and I'll have all the usual stuff to do.  I'm planning on quilting in and around the holidays.  I'm thankful not to be cooking a big meal.  I'm in charge of the dressing and my girls are making a 10 layer chocolate cake that I'm sure I'll have to help with.    Additionally I do plan on spending most of today and Saturday working on quilts for Christmas.  

Happy Wednesday Everyone.

Robin

Sounds delish!  I'm not making dinner this year, so my recipe is Bob Evans, lol.  We usualy have the usual, kind of like yours.  Our traditional dish is saurkraut made special with garlic, onions and mushroom gravy.  Not this year, though.  We'll make up for it at Christmas

Robin,

The shopping was a breeze. I was there at 8 am before the crowds, and can you believe they were out of turkeys? LOL.But another stop and I had one. No big deal.

Nice that you had a 12 hour sleep to get ready for your busy weekend. Your plans sound really nice for tomorrow, and seeing your Mom on Friday. I hope you can bring her out of her duldrums. I love that movie. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Darlene,

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving too!

Diane,

I ditto what Robin said earlier, and hope you have a great time with friends.

Linny,

You too! If I had worked today I'd have been doing the same thing. The saurkraut dish sounds yummy. I'll have to try that sometime.

Jo, 

I hope you're lurking out there and wish you and George a great day too.

Lillie, I hope you had safe travel and are having a great time .

 

I've been busy in the kitchen for several hours. I had forgotten how much I enjoy cooking. It's been nice to prepare and reflect on the holiday itself.Bought the dogs some new toys to keep them busy and out of my hair... Lot's to be thankful for this year including my friendship with all of you.

Most likely I won't have time to be online tomorrow, so I wish you all the best life has to offer. Happy Thanksgiving.

Robin your plans for Thanksgiving sound pleasant.  Hope your visit with your mom perks up her spirits.  A 10 layer chocolate cake sounds divine.  How nice that your daughters will be the only "kids" around.  They'll get a lot of attention with that cake in their hands.  

You are like Darlene, spinning multiple tops at once.  I admire your energy.  Glad you got some extra sleep.  Sounds like you'll need it.  Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I am having a wonderful time with my sister and bro. On Wed we shopped until we dropped! Over 7 hours going from store to store.  lol  We were exhausted by the time we got home.

I have been seeing my sister's chiropractor since I got here. He has really done wonders with my back. Praise the Lord! I will see him another 5 times before I leave for home. He has already found a chiropractor for me in my home town. Yippie!

We are off to my grandniece's for Thanksgiving dinner. It will be great to see the whole family together.

Have a safe and filling Thanksgiving!
