Someone thought this would be a great picture, three women washing the Thanksgiving dishes circa 1980. I didn't realize until this year that this may be one of my favorite pictures. That's me on the left, my Mother-in-law washing and Mom putting away. We all were skilled at washing dishes since none of us had a dishwasher, and the time went fast because we were laughing and talking about memories. We took turns then with the holiday meals. Somewhere along the way, I took over the apron and became the cook. I don't even remember when it happened. Somewhere about the time I became Nana I think. I love the planning and the preparation so I look forward to every holiday.
We woke up to sleet and snow on Thanksgiving, not enough to cause any travel problems but it did add to the holiday mood!
We are good team, Hubby stays out of the kitchen unless he's needed to wash up pots and pans or carve turkey! Ben also waits patiently for his Thanksgiving turkey...
This looks like a lot of dressing for our little family, but everyone takes leftovers home and it goes fast!
I used my daughter's roaster and the turkey turned out great! I miss not having two ovens but this was the perfect answer to that problem. If you have trouble juggling all the casseroles that have to be baked at the same time as the meat...go out and buy one of these!
It was a perfect day, but we sure miss having both daughters and their families. Christmas is coming though and they will all be here! I've started planning my menus and I'm using the roaster again for brisket!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving...
