This is one of my favorite times of the year. I am so glad that we do not take our children to the store and set them on Tom Turkey's lap and get the to tell him what they want for Turkey Day. This is one Holiday that is not such a commercial day. Yes, I know that people go shopping the next day, but it is not the same as other holidays.
Enjoy the day with family and food and rubbing your belly after a "huge meal" and saying, "Next time, remind me not to eat so much."
I will get up on Thanksgiving Day and cook for my family. As always, I will say that I am not going to cook so much and then it will be huge and we will not have enough counter space for the food.
Here is my menu, or it will be something like this...
Chicken and Dressing
Green Bean Casserole
Chicken and Dumplings (Maybe)
Ham (I do not do turkey that much.)
Stewed Squash (Maybe)
Sweet Potato Pie
Coconut Cake (Maybe)
Hmmmmmmm...I will have to think about what I have missed.
The children at NALC call me "Gomey."
