Happy Thursday Everyone! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Terri Molina, and I write Tex-Mex romance. You can learn more about me at www.terrimolina.com
Thanksgiving is next week---Yes, already! This year flew by faster
than a turkey trying to run from the farmer’s ax (probably not a good analogy as turkeys can only run about 25 mph).
Thankfully, the grocery stores take care of the catching and cleaning of the bird.
Anyway, I love Thanksgiving--having family and friends around the dinner table and giving thanks for all the blessings we’ve been given. But most of all I love the food! I mean, really, who doesn’t??
For nearly thirty years I’ve been the one cooking dinner. Not because I have to….because I want to. I love preparing the meal and desserts. The past few years my children have been volunteering to help….which is fine, I’m not that obsessive about it, and our menu is generally the same each year:
· cornbread dressing & gravy,
· green bean casserole,
· cranberry salad,
· croissant rolls
…somewhat traditional. And I’ll probably limit the desserts to just pie…which I don’t eat because I don’t like pie (unheard of, I know. ) Then of course we’ll eat the leftovers for a couple of days and do it all over again at Christmas. Haha
Another of our traditions is ’game night’, which, even now as adults, my kids enjoy, Pictionary being the favorite. We do two teams -- girls against boys-- and use a large white board to draw the pictures. This year we’re adding a new game…one we started on my birthday… a Lip Sync battle.
So, what are some of the traditional / not so traditional things you do during the holidays?
