Well, it seems that the month of November has nearly slipped by and it's time for Thanksgiving. Yesterday, I took my Mom to finish her shopping as she is preparing Turkey dinner for 20 people at her house on Thursday. Yes, I said 20 people! And my mom just happens to have turned 79 years old just 2 weeks ago. I hope I'll be up to hosting family and friends when I'm her age, after all, that's what Thanksgiving is all about.
This morning, I donned one of my favorite aprons about 9:30 and by lunchtime I had one apple pie, two pecan pies (one is already in the freezer, saved for Christmas) and a pumpkin bread cooling on racks. After a quick lunch, I mixed up a cherry cheese pie and stuck that in the fridge to chill. Tomorrow, I'll make my cheese sauce for macaroni and cheese to go in the crockpot for Thursday evening's meal. You see after feeding 20 people a huge meal at lunchtime, more family will arrive at my parent's home for an evening buffet. Mom is planning on about 30 for that meal.
Everyone helps out with food and clean-up. The women have always taken turns on helping with the dishes after dinner. Last year my sister-in-law made some comment about why didn't the men do the dishes this year. So they did!!! As I always tell my son, you don't know if you don't ask.
Sending you my wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving Day spent with your loved ones.
I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. I began blogging to share my love of aprons. Now I use my blog to share all the things I love.
I learned to sew when I was 11 years old and it's still my favorite hobby. I adore vintage everyday items. I can spend hours poking around a flea market or antique store. I am a stay at home mom, and after homeschooling my son for seven years, I'm finding more time to craft and sew. I have been happily married since 1991. I live in the town I was born in and most of my family live only minutes away.
