Giving Thanks and Thanksgiving Dinner

Posted on: November 26, 2008

I have many, many things for which I thank God this Thanksgiving. In particular, I am grateful for all of my family and friends, my warm and cozy house, my kitchen that’s always full of good foods, my good health and the good health of my loved ones; and a lifetime of memories of happy, warm Thanksgivings.

God has blessed our family abundantly; I hope as my children grow, they will recognize His love and always remember those less fortunate.

I’m hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year. That means I have to make the whole meal by MYSELF.* How exciting! Want to know what we’re having? Of course you do, that’s why you’re still reading!

Hot Spiced Apple Cider
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Bagel Chips
Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Crackers

Main Course:
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Broccoli Casserole
Sweet Potato Casserole
Cranberry Sauce
Red Cabbage
Corn Pudding
Raspberry Jello
Dinner Rolls

Apple Pie
Pumpkin Pie

This is pretty much the classic menu for my family. The broccoli casserole gets a little bit bigger each year, but it’s still never enough. My mouth is watering at the thought of all this food!

* Okay, not by myself. My mom will be here, cooking right along with me. In fact, she’ll probably do most of the work. And David always cores, peels, and slices the apples for the pie. But other than that, it’s all me.
