Happy Thanksgiving!

As we finish up our day, I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to those who follow our family through our blog.

I am so thankful that God has given me such a great family. There are so many memories that are cherished. As I was preparing the dinner, I was talking to my dad about what I remember about where I learned some of my cooking. It brought memories of my Great Grandmother Fortune. She was such a wonderful lady who loved to cook for her family. Many of the recipes and tricks I use I got from her, even though I was too young for her to realize that I was picking up on them. Also for the fact that my family know to leave me alone when I am cooking. But I can tell that they enjoyed it because we have very few left overs!

As for two of my successes. The first is a butternut squash dish, which I found here. I used Ritz instead of saltines. The other I found in a free parents journal. It was a great center piece. And the other bonuses was that it was edible and Zane actually ate the fruit and vegetables! Yes, very unusual!


Anyone thinking of Lincoln Logs for your child? Here is the warning if you get the tin storage container, or the tin popcorn.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and good luck if you are shopping tomorrow!
