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
