The table is set, pies are made, and the turkey is in the oven.
I found these cute turkey’s for half price last year.
I typed each grand child’s name on scrapbook paper and added it to the base.
The table is tagged. I’d hate for any of the grandies to get lost. LOL!
Time to reflect while waiting for the arrival of family.
My mind is on Thanksgivings of the past. I think it’s because so many of the recipes I use for our feast were my sweet mothers and mother in laws.
They were both wonderful cooks. Thanksgiving was always such a joyous holiday! I sure do miss them, my father, and brother.
My pecan pie recipe is my mothers and my coconut cream is my MIL’s.
My dressing (stuffing) is a combination of both woman.
The adult table has to be cleared of most of the décor to make room for what’s really important; family and food!
Centerpiece is a fruit bowl of glitzy and rustic fruit.
mercury glass votive candles line the center. Each family will take one home.
Trivets awaiting hot yummy sweet potatoes.
Bowls and platters waiting to be filled.
As family arrives:
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner!
Just realized that our oven was accidently turned off for an hour or so. I think it happened when I cleared the timer after making my coconut cream pie. Dinner may be pushed back. UGH!
See, that’s what happens when you do things differently. I always make my pies the day before. Yesterday I made pumpkin, and pecan. The weather was so nice that I went out to put lights in our trees. Decided that I would have plenty of time to make coconut and banana cream pie this morning.
