What’s cookin’?

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year.  No presents to buy, no serious decorations expected, just food, friends and family.  Tonight is our family gathering with our children–well, most of our children.  Our oldest, Kathy, is in law school and won’t make it home until mid-December. 

I love cooking Thanksgiving dinner.  I’ll bake a turkey, make dressing and gravy, sweet potato casserole, green peas, and I’ll open a can of cranberry sauce.  We’ll have my husband’s famous macaroni and cheese, and for dessert, we’ll have pecan pie and baked apple tarts.  The food will be scrumptious.  The company will be even better.

Now that our kids are grown, we don’t see them all that much, especially not as a group.  It’s great having them together and listening to stories of what’s going on in their lives.  They’ve matured nicely.  They are all bright and responsible, and a little funny besides.  We’ll spend most of the evening laughing together.

My next favorite day of the year will be around Christmas, when we all get together for breakfast and I make my famous gingerbread muffins!   Kathy will scramble the eggs, Audrey will make the biscuits, Camille will fry the bacon, and Justin will supervise us all, giving sage advice from time to time.  Ahhhh, good times!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.  I hope you’ll have time to cook up some great memories over the next few days.
