And may you have a comfy chair awaiting you after the feast!
Friends and family are gathering here today. I'm doing the turkey, gravy, dressing, rolls, pumpkin chiffon pie, and my grandmother's cranberry-celery-pineapple-pecan gelatin salad. Friends and family are bringing starters, sides, and more desserts.
I've been pecking away at various things since Sunday -- getting as much as possible done in advance.
In a fit of nostalgia-inspired hubris, I decided to attempt butterflake rolls -- the rolls John and I both remember from the Thanksgivings of our youth. They came from Nagles' Bakery in Tampa and were sublime. I hope this recipe will turn out to be something like what we both remember. (As I posted this Wednesday night, I'll have to let you know in the comments how they were.)
I am SO thankful to be here for Thanksgiving rather than incarcerated in a nursing home as I was last year!
And, of course we're thankful for Josie!
What a joy it is to have her in our lives!
May your Thanksgiving be as you would have it! I'm thankful for your friendship.
