I looked around for a Thanksgiving MeMe and I didn’t like any of them exactly the way I found them, so I did some turkey style carving and loaded my plate with what I wanted.
My house. We switch each year between here and my brother’s house (he goes to his wife’s family every other year.)
A traditionally roasted twenty pound turkey with savory bread stuffing in the bird and in a pan, heaps of mashed potatoes, buckets of gravy, Brussels sprouts with brown butter onions and toasted slivered almonds, white and yellow corn, Alice’s Carrot Salad, whole berry cranberry sauce and jellied cranberry sauce, mini sweet gherkins, baby kosher dills, black olives, green pimento stuffed olives and mild pepper rings, crescent rolls, apple pie and vanilla ice cream and pumpkin pie with whipped cream (pies supplied by my parents.)
3. Who? My mother and father, me and my husband, my aunt and uncle, my daughter, her husband and my grandson (I have turkey flavored formula for him) and my niece and her boyfriend.
4. When? Arrival is approximately 1 PM and dinner is at 3 PM (if I get the turkey in on time.) My parents and aunt and uncle will leave for home by seven, my daughter and her family will spend the night and my niece and her boyfriend will leave upon her whim.
5. How? The food will be set out as a buffet and then we will sit down together at one large table .

(Sharpie ® on tracing paper)
And here, for your pleasure, is the silly poem:
Thank You, God,
for the great bounty of Your blessings:
enough clothes for multiple dressings,
luscious food that is much better than gruel,
a big comfy house warm with lots of fuel,
a family always ready to defend
and loyal, happy, silly friends,
a warm and loving spouse of a honey
and a job that gives me plenty of money,
a warm and gifted daughter child
and troubles small and very mild.
I have generally wonderful health
that is more important than excessive wealth.
I have been graced with many talents
and a joy in them that keeps me in balance.
You have helped me keep my loved ones close
and I know that's what matters most.
You helped me find this blogging universe
filled with people kind and diverse.
There's my cute Cody puppy
and I'm glad I was never a yuppie;
and lest You forget,
there's the Lear I haven't gotten yet
and for everything I forgot,
I thank You a whole lot.
