Happy Thanksgiving!
Thursday, November 26th, 2020

The “Devlins” are up early today. There’s so much work to do to be ready for our Thanksgiving feast! We’ll eat early this evening when my SIL finishes his shift at the local PD. My dd and I spent yesterday cooking all the dishes we could in advance for our family of seven. I say I helped, but mostly I was “dishes-cleanup” girl, and I used my new Dash egg cooker to boil a ton of eggs. No one trusts me to actually cook anything! Due to COVID, our gathering is much smaller than in past years—just the folks who occupy this house. We’re staying safe though we will miss our extended family. We’d rather miss them this day rather than forever. I hope you all plan safe gatherings, too.

We have pies, deviled eggs, and a cheesy hedgehog ready. Today, we’re baking the turkey and ham, the stuffing, the candied yams. Yum. The house will be alive with music. Yesterday, we jammed to Aretha and CCR in the kitchen. So joyous! I hope everyone out there jams to great music, dances with the kids, and shares a meal to remember always. Find the joy, y’all—in being together and holding your loved ones close!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. We are just staying at home with the 5 of us. We aren’t sure what we are having for dinner today. My daughter and her kids don’t really enjoy the food on Thanksgiving. So we are winging it this year since we aren’t having family over. Stay safe and have a great day.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    OK, I gotta ask, what in the world is a “cheesy hedgehog”? I’ve never heard of it and I’m curious.

    The hedgehog is cream cheese mixed with some spices, green onion, olive bits, and then rolled into a ball and coated with lives of almonds that makes it look like a hedgehog. It’s yummy and what we set out for a snack before the meal so folks don’t have rumbly bellies as we set out the food.
