Today was a great Thanksgiving. I hope yours was too. My youngest son, his wife and his son came over from Bryan. Unexpectedly my son has to work tomorrow and they returned to Bryan this evening instead of staying overnight. Nevertheless, it was a great delight that they drove the 120 miles for dinner.
I realized today that I do not use my china and silver as much as I should. That is going to change for nothing is much prettier than a fancy table setting. :D When I went to buy some flowers, I found them to be a bit worn and opted to cut some fresh rosemary, lavender, and sage from my garden to fill in around the candles.
My mother used the above silver dish with cover for keeping the cornbread dressing warm; but I used it to keep the bread warm. :D
Meanwhile, Luc and Maggie made a new friend since my daughter-in-law brought along her youngest dog, Twist (with the blue ball), a Border Collie. Jennifer has two Border Collies trained in Search & Rescue.
Dinner went off as scheduled and was delicious, if I do say so myself. I used my mother's cornbread dressing recipe, and it was as good as I remembered it. Everyone except me watched the game after dinner. I come from a football family but was always the "black sheep" when it came to the game. Even though I do not "fit" in with these football people, nothing beats having one's family around.
Until next time, God bless.
