Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions? Do you stay home and cook or go visit relatives?
We unfortunately live 8 hours away from my husbands family and 18 away from mine. So we are usually home for the holidays. My brother in-law and his family live here. Mary and I usually plan a meal together that way one person isn’t doing all the cooking. This year for Easter Mary did all the cooking because I was 9 months pregnant. So for Thanksgiving this year I cam doing the cooking. I am looking forward to planning and making a big meal. At the same time I am a little nervous. I guess that is normal for us younger people who don’t have years of experience or tried and true family recipes. My husband wants me to make cornbread dressing from scratch. When he told me that I got very nervous. I have tried for years to make cornbread that is awesome and just never have gotten it right. I am from Florida. My parents are from the North. Cornbread and soup beans weren’t a staple in our house like it is for most people who live south of the Mason Dixon line. This week I searched for recipes for cornbread. I made a few and think I have come up with a good recipe for cornbread. I made a call to my good friend Trish to get her recipe for cornbread dressing. She is from Alabama and has all those southern family recipes that she doesn’t mind sharing. Today I made a batch for my husband to take to work tomorrow. They are having a Thanksgiving lunch tomorrow. So hopefully it is good and I don’t kill anyone. Knowing him if it is good he will want me to make it regularly. So wish me luck.
Oh Andrew got two more teeth on the top. He will look like a vampire. The front top haven’t appeared but the two next to them have.
