    Wow, I guess i learned something by accident today, Thank you.


    In my home Thanksgiving turns into a gathering of epic proportions. When i was first married, 20 years ago, we would all gather at my grandmothers house for a traditional meal. Turkey, yams, stuffing.....the normal fare.

    Then relatives started dying or moving out-of-state.

    When the only family left was one of my cousins and her 2 children we reinvented the holiday and started our own new traditions.

    meal planning starts weeks in advance.........


    We still have the traditional meal at 2 in the afternoon, however, by 2 we have already indulged in an array of sweetbreads, various dips, vegetable platters, and whatever other delightfully evil edibles we decided to create that year. it changes

    Now that my children are teenagers, any holiday at my house is a mob scene. Most of their friends are either in single parent situations, or simply the product of neglect. Nothing in the world can lift me out of a depression faster then having one of my sons friends tell me, "I'm running out of ways to say I love you". It makes me feel appreciated.


    This year, The thought of Thanksgiving scares me to death. After 10 years of creating holiday traditions together. My partner in holiday cooking, cousin Annie, passed away 7/16/09. Pancreatic cancer took her at 40 years old. not fair



    It doesn't really matter what you cook. It does matter that you take the time to step out of the kitchen and enjoy the company of the people that have chosen to celebrate with you.


    I am wishing you a full day of laughter - enjoy!!!!!!
