The table was set with my Grandmother's homemade tomato juice, turkey's on the left and the plate of "brown-looking glob" on the right is actually grape jello with bing cherries-- A Thanksgiving tradition.
Another family tradition was to eat the pumpkin pie first. Grandpa said Grandma worked so hard making the pies that we should "Eat dessert first in case the house burns down."
We lived in this tiny house until I was ten years old but there was always room for the whole family and stray friends-- as long as they brought their own folding chair to pull up to the table.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. Aside from the great food, it's a time to reflect and give thanks. One of the many things I'm thankful for is the blogging community who has been so generous to me this year. May this be our first of many Thanksgivings together.
Pass the Pumpkin Pie please!
