Happy Thanksgiving!!!

All 21 family members from my mom's side of the family made it to Midland, TX ..... which is absolutely a blessing in itself.  AND, since everyone is officially here, the real Thanksgiving festivities can be fulfilled tomorrow!

I will be waking up to my Granny Gayle's most FABULOUS biscuits and gravy.  It is seriously on my list of last meals to devour before I die (if I had the choice).  None of us know how to make it, but the family has watched her make it for probably 30 years!!!  It is a real treat, and I know not to ever order it at a restaurant  because it won't even compare.



Then, we will eat a little more ..........

turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, rolls
(my favorites)



Watch a little of this ....



and end with this ....

It's the one day I won't fill guilty enjoying a plate or two of some turkey and casseroles and lastly ending the night with some pie crust!  I don't eat pie, but I do go around the kitchen picking to find crust I can take and not get caught :)

Hope everyone has a happy thanksgiving with their family/friends!

Have a great time with your family! You should learn how to make your grandma's recipe. There are a number of my Grandma's recipes that my family misses, because no one knows how to make them and now that she's gone, she can't teach us. It would be wonderful if you can learn the recipe so you can continue to pass it on down the generations.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Your Thanksgiving sounds just like mine and I can't wait for it to begin (well, technically it did when I put the bird in the oven two hours ago).

Hope you have the happiest Thanksgiving love!!
