This year Thanksgiving falls on the 24th of November.
The 24th of November is the day that my stepmother and dad got married..
The 24th of November is the day that one of my brothers was born.
The 24th of November is the day my Uncle Archie was killed in 1932 on
one of his last days of training in the Army Air Corps. His wingman hit
him and when he bailed out his parachute got caught on something and he
went down with his plane.
Two weeks ago my pregnant sister in
law was told that her baby wasn't 34 weeks along, he was 38 weeks
along. This week is her fortieth week. She's full term. Tomorrow she'll
be at the doctor about the time I fly in.
I'm wondering if we're going to have something else to commemorate on the 24th again.
Hey, Doc, can you hold off on your turkey so we can fit another November 24th anniversary in?
My brother planned to do the meal
this year. I've enjoyed several years off by going to visit my friends
and family. But this baby may have other plans for him.
Wait a minute. That means I may be
cooking the turkey. Do you dare me to make that Campbell's
green bean and mushroom soup side dish? Haaaaaaaaaaaa.
How about if I serve a can of jellied cranberry sauce pushed out of the can
onto a glass dish so you can see the rings around it. Always a nice touch. I could use Potato Buds too --
instead of peeling and cooking the real thing. Is there a recipe for microwave turkey?
So what's your favorite dish from
Thanksgiving that you remember best? Or like to cook most? I will
always love mashed potatoes and gravy. My favorite to cook and eat.
I can't wait for a respite from the goodness of my sushi and chicken
with steamed vegetables world. Whether I end up cooking or not.
Have a great holiday.
