Every Thanksgiving Day, I am always in a fix. Do I have everyone over or do I just plan to fix for my husband and girls.
Well, this Thanksgiving I found myself with so much stress on my life that I actually told my sister, Tammy that I would not have the dinner at my house this year. But, as my children know, I caved in and told everyone that we would have dinner at my house.
It is so hard to let others down. So last night I started on my cooking. First the Baby Food cake for Gabrielle. Then on to the Pound cake(only my grandmother's will do). So I fixed two, one for my sister and then one for Payton( Alexis' boyfriend). Then on to the Deviled Eggs. Now one year, we let Marie fix them and thank- goodness I had fixed some and we replace them. Now we know when asked, we give her something else to fix. I only know one way to fix them and that is the way my mother taught me.
I had gotten some squash at the store and decided that I would fix a casserole. Now when it comes to this, I just wing it. I never fix it the same way, I just add things until I think that it tastes good. I do think that this year I would have added jalapenos if I knew that others would have enjoyed the heat. But to say the least, I think that it was the best one so far.
I got the tea fixed, oh, I almost forgot the brownies. This time I used small muffin tins and then I forgot to set them out. The kids will enjoy them when they all get back from Mississippi. So this holiday, I had none of my children at home.
We still had a great time with Tammy and her children and their families. Normally, each Thanksgiving I bring out a book that I made in 2002. We will bring this out each year and we all write something that we are thankful for. Except this year, I completely forgot to get it out. I even forgot to take pictures until my Mandy reminded me about pictures. So I went ahead and took a few pictures of things always asked for.
Here's hoping that your day was everything that it could be.
