Phew! the year has flown by with no thought to what we are doing. Thanksgiving! Well, for me, this holiday brings up memories of famiy gatherings and turkey dinner. I remember as a child the ladies shooing us out of the kitchen so we would not be underfoot while they were preparing a huge feast. Turkey, mountains of mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce... the list goes on.
I would go on, but my stomach is aching just thinking of it!
We are not having our turkey dinner today... boohoo. But we will be gathering on Sunday for a big feast. I think I better make 2 pots of potatoes. Lately when we make mashed potatoes for a typical dinner for just us, I have to make 6 quarts of mashed potatoes! Trevin himself can eat a huge plateful, not to mention the 3 servings Trajun downs. I think they like potatoes!
