Happy Thanksgiving


I can’t say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday as it seems to be centered around food and food isn’t a driving force in my life, but nevertheless, I will spend hours making yeast bread and candied yams to take to our family get together tomorrow.  It will be a large gathering of family..and will probably include some of the holiday conflicts that plague most large families.  But, in spite of the family squabbles, it’s still fun and it’s still family and for that I am thankful.

I hope each of you have a blessed, happy and fun filled Thanksgiving.

    Good or Bad, might be fun to meet here tomorrow night and tell our tales of the day ! :P One thing I regret,,,,,,,, LOL,, and this is gonna sound bad. I have a non drinking family. :( So we miss out on those outrageous drunken escapades that plague some family holiday gatherings.

    My family is pretty much non-drinking as well. I’ll probably need a drink when it’s over.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

    I am going to my son in laws grandmothers house. I am working my way up in what food I can bring. Last year it was olives. This year its 2 liters plus a six pack of 7up for the punch. His family is definately is set in their ways and traditions. He says they behave better when we go. At 85, she puts on quite the spread. We also put up her outdoor Christmas decorations for her
    On the side, I am giving him his birthday present. A Packer fan, he is getting a bottle of Cheesehead Wine. Laugh all you want it won a prize in Long Beach CA and Finger Lakes

    Yeast bread (yum-yum!) I have not had any yeast bread since we came to this part of Florida. Quincy’s in Jacksonville served yeast bread with their meals and it was so good. Candied Yams, those I remember from Thanksgiving Days with my mother’s family in Mississippi … that was such a long time ago. I will celebrate Thanksgiving with a slice of pecan pie from Boston Market. A treat for me since I will be breaking my diet, now one year old, and through which i’ve lost quite a bit of weight. I suppose this is one time of the year when turkeys might go around wishing they could say, “moo-moo” rather than, “gobble-gobble”. It could help them escape the traditional hatchet which befalls them this time of year.

    Ok, I was wrong. Funny stuff CAN happen without liquor. But most of you know my mother is a pharmacy addict ! So here goes…. this is nice ! ( i’d love to attach a photo Sage, but don’t know how) I put the ham in the oven and stirred up the glaze mix with the boiling water… You all know the routine, right you pour it over the ham after it’s heated, then broil it for 5 minutes or so to get your HONEY GLAZED on it. So while the ham is cooking, glaze is sitting,, I run outside for a cigarette. What could go wrong? When i come back in the glaze bowl is empty….. GONE! I briefly thought it might have evaported if not used immediately ( who knows, I was grasping) So I say “hey ,where’s the glaze? did someone put it on already?”” A dumbfounded look by all…… nothing..not a word. I hold up this little pitcher/bowl it was in and said ” WHERE DID THIS GO” LMAO…. My mom, bless her heart,, says OH I MADE THE TEA FOR YOU ! Hmmmmmmmm, huh? She repeats ” I MADE THE TEA” Me–’with this? ‘ holding up pitcher? Mom says YES I MADE THE TEA ! I’m like MOM :@ THIS AINT TEA! It’s HAM GLAZE!
    Uproarious laughter by our group, but I’m pissed. HA . Not bad enough? She’s made a small pitcher of tea with the ham glaze, thus rendering the ham, glaze-free and ruining a pitcher of iced tea. Now, she doesn’t waste all that hard work, so she suggests we either ENJOY some sparkly tea OR pour the tea over the ham! Which one to choose,,, both sound so good . I don’t know if she drank the tea or not,,, but I had water and salty ham ! :)

    CHRISTMAS IS COMING NEXT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    LOL….oh how funny.

    It ended up we stayed home. My husband wasn’t feeling well, which is unusual for him.

    For years,my own family has been notorious for coming down with a nasty flu bug the night before Thanksgiving, so we have missed a lot. Sometimes, just to mix it up we get sick as heck on Christmas Eve. Three years ago on Christmas Eve we were so sick and just almost dead and my dad INSISTED we come anyway because h e wanted my husband to help him put up a giant bookcase. OH man, that was bad. Actually for the last couple of years we have been taking a homeopathic flu remedy weekly during flu season and have been to ALL holiday functions !
    Anyway, I hope your husband is better and it’s not serious. It is a bummer to be sick on holidays :(

    He was pretty bummed out but he’s feeling better now. He is very seldom sick.
