Pa says, "It's all about the FOOD, y'all!"

Ahhhh... Thanksgiving is this week! I love eating waaaay more than is good for a person. And I have the hips to show for it...

Thanksgiving is my Southern Daddy's (known to his grandbabies as "Pa") favorite holiday because:
1) The entire holiday revolves around eating.
2) No gifts to give.
3) PECAN PIE-- You can't get more explicit than that!
4) No people to entertain-- ya just feed 'em.
5) FOOD!!!
6) Pies and FOOD!
7) Napping in front of the football game. 
 As for us, two states away from all the grand-folks, we're looking forward to Thanksgiving, too. (We're not "football people," however. *yawn*) Luckily for me, my adorable husband is a wonderful cook, and he really loves to take over Thanksgiving. I am usually inclined to let him!

This year, our menu will be simple:
  • Turkey (of course)
  • Mashed Taters (lots of butter, garlic, some sour cream, salt)
  • Turkey Gravy
  • Bread Stuffing (some years we make the corn bread variety-- my favorite!)
  • Baked Yams (I prefer sweet potatoes, but guess which were on sale?)
  • Homemade Rolls by yours truly (My Grandma's excellent Butterflake Rolls)
  • Honey Almond Butter to spread on the rolls.
  • Pies: 2 pumpkin, 1 key lime, 1 apple
For me, Thanksgiving is the kick-off to the happiest time of year! I love it! See y'all later...
