We headed down to hang with my side of the family for Thanksgiving. We had a typical Thanksgiving dinner. The menu included:
- Turkey ( I abstained)
- Mashed potatoes
- Butternut squash
- Stuffing (made by the brother, vegetarian even!)
- Sweet potatoes (with maple syrup and cranberries, even I thought this was tasty)
- Cream of broccoli soup
It was a team effort, with my brother and mother doing most of the work. After a while we had dessert, with these offerings:
- Apple pie
- Chocolate pudding pie
- Pumpkin pie
- Vanilla ice cream
- Chocolate ice cream
- Whipped cream to top things off
A word about the pumpkin pie: It was the best pumpkin pie I have ever had. My brother found a new recipe and my mom whipped it up and it was sweet and creamy and just plain GOOD. I need to find out how to make me one of them puppies.
It was a fine meal, shared with family. That is a good thing. Like all families we have our differences and oddities, but we get along well. That isn’t true of many families. So I am lucky. I am thankful for that.
