What will you serve? (Contest)
Sunday, November 7th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Pat Bohn!

I’ve had a busy weekend! My son’s in town for a visit, so yesterday we spent the day in Hot Springs—hitting flea markets, the rock shop—yes, we’re a family of junkers and rock collectors, so we had a blast. I didn’t buy much. I found a Japanese brush pot—chipped (I think the chips added character!). I bought a large carved and polished labradorite heart and a rose quartz worry stone.  Not much, but I’m not disappointed. It’s like when I travel. The best part for me isn’t the destination, it’s the journey. Never take a road trip with me unless you love stopping to take a look at the largest ball of twine or the only pearl farm in North America. That’s me with junking, too. Don’t get me wrong, I love finding treasures, but it’s the hunt I adore, especially with fellow hunters who love the process as much as I do!

Anyways, my son’s heading back to Virginia tomorrow. The next big thing coming up is Thanksgiving. We’ve already bought the turkey and all the dry or canned ingredients we need for the meal. I heard on the news they expect shortages of certain foods for Thanksgiving, and of course, made the dd head to the store the next day to make sure we had a turkey. Yes, I’m one of those people.

Anyway, we bought a small turkey because as much as we love Thanksgiving, we aren’t keen on days of leftovers. What are you planning to serve? Is there some special dish everyone expects? Comment for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card! Be sure to solve the puzzle for inspiration!

    I always make Pistachio pudding, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, cheese, mash and sweet potatoes, Christmas and sunshine pickles. Probably a glass of wine to go with it. Happy Holidays to you and your family. Hugs 💜

    The classic sides like potatoes and green beans but this year I’m making various and assorted meats. I’m hoping to be able to use my smoker.

    I’ll do a turkey…which we found last weekend and at a very good price I must say. It’s 21 pounds, but I use it up making soups for the freezer and sandwiches for my husbands lunch and may a quick leftover easy dinner on the weekend after Thanksgiving. I’ll make mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing & corn. But there will also be candied sweet potatoes…because I need those. If I remember I’ll make rolls. Then the pies of course for dessert. Always pumpkin, chocolate cream & apple.

    Going to my son and daughter-in-law this year, I’m sure we are having the turkey and all of the trimmings.

    I am currently living with my daughter and her family while hunting for a house near her. Mine has sold and haven’t found anything yet so I will be helping with whatever she wants to fix for dinner. Plus her in-laws will also be here so there’s plenty of favorites to contend with. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Turkey’s my least favorite meat, but I look forward to eating it on Thanksgiving. I love the dressing! Bread rather than cornbread (I know, not very Southern of me!). We substitute peas for green beans in the casserole–and that’s the 17-year-old’s favorite dish. We bought a small turkey this year, because we really, really don’t like using it for leftovers. LOL
