|The finished product|
I love Thanksgiving!! Its the official beginning of the holiday season. Which of course means family, friends, memories, traditions and lots and lots of yummy food and drinks.
Translation: the ladies are doing a lot of the above while the guys do a lot of the below (with or without small babes). Small price to pay for all the yumminess of the season.
Course this year, cooking day was a bit different than usual as we were at Grammy and Poppy’s house and we have a newborn. We did make some wonderful memories – Grammy let the girls make her famous Banana Pudding (they did so good!) and I got to go to the store and purchase fresh turnip greens having never seen them in their uncooked state. Thank goodness for helpful elderly ladies! (There was a scare that I got collard greens, but all was well, they were turnip – whew! They really should not put them next to each other on the shelf – just saying!). I didn’t get to do much else but hold a hold-me-baby (which I didn’t mind of course, they are only little bitty for a short time), do some odds and ends and of course, talk to everyone in the kitchen.
