Happy Thanksgiving


I missed having the gang here this year.  This is what happens, I suppose, when even the grandchildren are about grown.  It was only Poppy and me for dinner.

Poppy got home from work around 12:00 just as I was putting the food on the table.   Quite a bit of food for the two of us! 



 
 
Pardon the pots on the table.  I like old fashioned, and collards are simply better in a cast iron pan.

The dishes are washed and the food is back on the stove, covered until supper time.  Poppy has changed into his camouflage and gone hunting.   

Mama has been on my mind today.  My Mother died on Thanksgiving day, in 2007.  I miss her every day.

Well friends, wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving.  I am on my way outside to visit the animals!  Hope to be back real soon! :)

Love,
Henny Penny

  3. Is that cornbread dressing? Looks like it. I always make it even when I bake a ham and so don't have turkey drippings to season it with. Pretty good, but never as good as Mama's! Her's was absolutely the best.

    1. It Is cornbread dressing, like mama made. I never thought about making it with ham, but I think I will do that at Christmas. Actually, I like ham better than turkey. Thank you for the idea! I'll be thinking about you next time we have dressing with ham! :) You just can't beat cornbread dressing!
