I haven't posted for awhile because I'm worn out from the holiday. First I spent 2 days cleaning before Thanksgiving, then I did mostly all of the cooking and I made a lot of food! I cooked a turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, homemade gravy, pumpkin pie, and chocolate chip cream cheese squares. I had the ingredients to make a blueberry pie but did not have time to make it. Russell cooked a ham on the smoker.There was other food such as cranberry sauce, and some pecan pies and ambrosia that someone else brought. I enjoy cooking during the holidays even though it's so much work. Well it's a lot of work for a meal that will be eaten in about a half hour. I think Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it's one of the few holidays left with no commercialism. No gifts, no greediness, just a time to contemplate what we are thankful for. I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
