If I only got one holiday a year with my mom, I’d totally pick Thanksgiving. That woman is a machine when it comes to planning a menu, shopping for ingredients and whipping up a feast. Her cornbread dressing is legen…wait for it…dary. Through her connections with family and friends she has a collection of other holiday recipes that are unparalleled.
Thursday? We’ve got brined, roasted turkey. The aforementioned dressing with gravy. Corn casserole that could almost be a dessert. Broccoli salad that is almost like vegetable candy. Cranberry sauce that you could pour over the whole meal, it’s that good.
And PAH. Pumpkin and pecan, ‘course.
This year she’s still full speed ahead on the meal prep, but there’s been lots of down time to snuggle and plot with Monkey.
He’s her number one fan right now, following her into every room, looking for her first thing in the morning, begrudgingly sharing his iPad so she can play Angry Birds.
And of course, demanding pony rides, which as you can see, she’s passively obliging.
We’re thankful to have her here this holiday, knowing full well the responsibilities she had to put on the back burner so she could snag this time with just us. Thanks, Texas, for sharing her.
