As my turkey cooks in the oven this morning and the house begins to smell of the holiday aromas coming from the kitchen, it makes me feel like Mom is right there in the kitchen helping me prepare my family's dinner.
I wish I had asked her more questions thou ...Why do you cook Turkey instead of Prime Rib?... Why are we having mashed potatoes instead of baked sweet ones?... Who says pumpkin only comes in pie form?
I'm very blessed! Thank you for my God, who loves me, my husband, who takes care of me, my daughters, who strengthen me, and my granddaughter, who makes me smile each day!
I don't think I ever told Mom how thankful I was for all those hours she worked in the kitchen so many Thanksgiving's ago...
Thank you , Mom, for all the hard work you did and for teaching me how to make your corn bread dressing! Maybe one day my granddaughter will call me for the recipe, who knows...
"Happy Thanksgiving 2011"
from our home to yours, may it be blessed with many lasting memories
