this year thanksgiving at my house was delayed...Beloved and i were up at five am on thanksgiving morning making green bean casserole and candied yams for the soup kitchen in hartford. we got home around 1 pm, collapsed and slept til 5. i like the way this enables our children to meet other obligations with other parts of their families: my son hosted his dad, my oldest daughter went to her brother-in-law's.
but as my kids once told me, it's not really thanksgiving til i cook the turkey dinner. today is my day.
here's what's on the menu:
roast turkey with cranberry-apple-cornbread stuffing
baked pineapple butternut squash
string bean casserole
crescent rolls, courtesy of mister pillsbury
and for dessert:
frozen chocolate creams with cherries on top
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
