happy Thanksgiving!

Hi folkes! Happy Thanksgiving! No card today ... just a greeting. I'm making a new recipe (for me) today as my contribution toward the Thanksgiving feast at my sister's home - Potato Supreme - compliments of my boss. I was online yesterday looking up the recipe and found a few variations (one as a mashed potato crust filled w brocolli and cheese - YUM!), but my boss happened by the printer during my printouts and offered me her version. We picked up the ingredients that I didn't have on hand at home already yesterday, so I'm ready to get cookin' soon; I figure I should have it ready to go into the oven in an hour or so. That left plenty of time to take a pic of my kitchen table, decorated for Thanksgiving in case we hosted here. It's skillfully edited to cut out the jackets tossed on the backs of the chairs. Good job, eh?!

So, wherever you happen to be today (with family and/or friends, or thinking of them across the miles (Hi Jack and Mary!)), I hope you're recalling your own reasons to be thankful today!

T’was the night of Thanksgiving

T’was 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 caused me elation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself 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!
