Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! I did my food prep last night so I can have a morning of relaxation and pet care. A bath for Miss Daisy before we go to Joan's for dinner and cage cleaning for the parakeets. They're both moulting so I guess a quick vac is needed also.
This year I was in charge of the cranberry/orange relish, cherry chiffon and three pies. I made Pumpkin, Apple and Turtle. I cheated with the apple pie because my apple peeler/corer/slicer died on me. I admit it, I used canned apples but doctored them up so maybe noone will notice? We'll be a small group at Joan's this year. The 4 of us plus Mom and Joan, Ed, Mark and Mark's girlfriend Colleen. Beth has to be to work at 5 a.m. on Friday and this year wants to take it easy on herself so she's staying home. Mike and his family rotate years between Joan's and Jodi's sister's home.
Joan has Grandma & Grandpa Tompkins' old dining room table and buffet. I wonder how many Thanksgiving dinners it has had laid upon it? Aunt Ginnie, do you remember what year they bought it?
