Happy Thanksgiving Bobby and MildMannered...and everyone!!

Oh gosh the mention of having people over for Thanksgiving...I love it....I MISS that so much...

Many and many a year ago when I was married (was married for 10 years) I am the one who had the Holiday feasts, everyone collected at our house and I loved it sooooo much.  I remember preparing for days, cooking and baking....always had both stoves going on the big day, both the old South Bend wood cook stove from the 1800's (like Lily Munster had LOL) and my regular gas stove too...I'd have a big ham in the wood stove and the turkey in the gas stove...and of course the two stove tops to prepare all the fixin's and side dishes....and then having sleepy company draped like noodles across the furniture after the meal ...how wonderful.  

Funny how there was so much hyper activity and loud chatter and laughter BEFORE the meal.....then after, nuttin' but a tired and content collection of couch potatoes and not much more to hear except the sounds of the flickering television lol.  And I always made enough food to send plates home with everyone, everything from the turkey and ham and the big kettles of gravy I would make from them to the sweetpotatoes, mashed taters, mountain of stuffing and corn, pumpkin pies, cookies, cranberry sauce, bean casserole, homemade breads, muffins, etc. etc.

Fond memories, indeed.

Twas The Night Of Thanksgiving,
But I Just Couldn't Sleep.
I Tried Counting Backwards,
I Tried Counting Sheep.

The Leftovers Beckoned -
The Dark Meat And White,
But I Fought The Temptation
With All Of My Might.

Tossing And Turning With Anticipation,
The Thought Of A Snack Became Infatuation.
So, I Raced To The Kitchen, Flung Open The Door,
And Gazed In The Fridge, Full Of Goodies Galore.
Gobbled Up Turkey And Buttered Potatoes,
Pickles And Carrots, Beans And Tomatoes.

I Felt Myself Swelling So Plump And So Round,
'til All Of A Sudden, I Rose Off The Ground.
I Crashed Through The Ceiling, Floating Into The Sky,
With A Mouthful Of Pudding And A Handful Of Pie.
But, I Managed To Yell As I Soared Past The Trees....
Happy Eating To All - Pass The Cranberries, Please.


May Your Stuffing Be Tasty,
May Your Turkey Be Plump.
May Your Potatoes 'n Gravy Have Nary A Lump.
May Your Yams Be Delicious.
May Your Pies Take The Prize,
May Your Thanksgiving Dinner Stay Off Of Your Thighs!!
