“Still Giving ‘Thanks’ for Thanksgiving”
“3 Cheers – for the COOKS!”
“HIP- HIP! HOORAY!” “3 CHEERS – for the COOKS!”
Sure do hope, that you did remember to say “THANKS” to and for what ever terrific help that you had – all those “extra hands” that were so very able to make a “masterpiece” of those wonderful desserts and making this the very best of all meals this year – maybe even just the biggest ever and juiciest of all of the “TURKEYS” – and surrounded by the best top drawer side dishes that were so very well made and designed – that everyone just had to enjoy seconds and thirds, since one was so much better than the other – as you and all of the guests were there to really enjoy and give the best of all “THANKS” to the ALMIGHTY for this most bountiful dinner and for the topper of the day – that everyone had more time to have lots of “FUN” just putting this all into their memory book – as one of the very best of our good times to get together!
This picture was taken several years ago and this senior chef, with her very helpful assistant, “Miss Alyssa” – the two of us pulled off another big feast – for everyone to enjoy???
In the above picture you can see – that – it does not pay to wear something “all white” – and then – stand near the refrigerator? This is not the best of pictures, since it is a “copy” and, I will have to locate the original – just to see who’s – who and what’s – what? This is a quick item – since we are still doing things with the last of that delicious turkey!
Sometimes “Turkeys” are so large that you end up with more than you expected and it can last longer – than you wanted, so the best thing to do now – is prepare containers for some slices of that leftover “Turkey” and freeze for another day – just remember you can make good sandwiches when you are in a hurry – everything is all ready – and still – ever so good – that you will be thinking of always having some extra “TURKEY” all prepared and ready – for those quick snacks – since you took the time to think ahead – so while busy getting things for the “CHRISTMAS” date – always coming around – so fast and furious, in these few days between getting ready for -and, all the did and done!
Since most of us, only prepare the big “TURKEY” once a year – -I keep telling myself, – “Next year year it will be a very small bird” – for some reason or the other – that is one thing I am very good at – and that is my forgetting – since this is only a once a year thing to do – guess my memory feels it must forget what I said, so that, I can just do it – “Just one more time” – – may as well start thinking of something else to forget – and keep on doing that, which makes for a wonderful “THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY” – and that all the FUN and FAMILY together – makes for a better memory in my book!
Hope that you are also – enjoying the last of your Turkey and saving the good memories of this year to pass on down to the next younger generation – and that each year, after having given THANKS to our ALMIGHTY for all of the wonderful gifts, that we did receive – our FAMILY and FRIENDS – we also want to remember to share with neighbors and those that need a helping hand – to make this LIFE , just a little more enjoyable for all! D.V.
