These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

Nov 20, 2012

Grandma’s 60 year old cornbread dressing recipe . . . hailing from East Texas, it’s a family favorite and required at all Thanksgiving Dinners

Sweet Potato Casserole – not the kind with the marshmallows, although I understand I’m knocking out half of my audience here, but the kind with the oats, brown sugar, tons of butter, and pecans crusted on top of that sweet gooey goodness

Fresh cranberry dressing, tart and a perfect compliment for my mom’s turkey

My little sister, who always tries to get out of doing dishes, acts sassy to all the big sisters and eats most of the feast without gaining a single pound. Gees! To be 17 years old again

The family dog, Scottie, who will sit quietly and patiently, not begging, knowing that scraps will be coming his way

The family hike where we look for deer, cross streams, and act like we are the Pilgrims from long ago

And . . . the fat and sassy bellies Thanksgiving evening, due to copious amounts of leftovers

What are a few of your favorite things?
