Happy Thanksgiving......


Well, I cooked all morning long and we enjoyed a delightful meal with just the four of us. We missed my son and daughter in law, but it was a sweet time to be with the other two children. They are nearly grown, and pleasant company! We had a turkey breast I cooked in the crock pot, which frees up the single oven for the many dishes that require the oven! It can be difficult to juggle a holiday meal with only a single oven! Along with the turkey, I prepared a Bacon & Pecan Dressing, Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and gravy, carrot souffle, and the jello salad, which wasn't ready by the time we got the meal on the table! I thought it would take until about 2:00 to get everything prepared, but was pleasantly surprised to be finished right about lunch time......oh, but no Strawberry Pretzel Salad to go with the meal. We just had cranberry sauce instead.....and even though it wasn't perfect, it was delicious and enjoyable. Oh and now there's room for Carrot Cake (hubby's fav) or Pumpkin Pie, requested by my son. The third pie didn't get made either, but there's always tomorrow for that! Have a blessed Thanksgiving Day my friends!!!
