This Years Thanksgiving; Simple

Well for this years thanksgiving we are going to take it easy, and its about time.  I am not doing a whole lot of big dishes just the Turkey.
So Heres our Menu;
1/2 of a Applewood Smoked Turkey
Homemade Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Small Australian Squash with Cornbread Stuffing
Green Salad
Green Beans
Macaroni and Cheese

And for dessert
Cherry, 7 in
Pecan, 3 made in 6 inch dishes
Lemon Meringue Pies, same as pecan
and Cheesecake
and Ice Cream and Whipped Real Cream

I am still thinking about a relish dish, its a maybe.  Smiths has their Glad and Ziploc on sale this week so that's where I picked up a few extra freezer containers for Thursdays leftovers yay!


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
