The Blessing of Thanksgiving

I hope all of you have had a wonderful day with family and friends. Mom and I celebrated today, and tomorrow we're having my son and some dear, dear friends for a little Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Party. This year I'm making a huge beef roast instead of turkey. Mom and I had turkey frozen dinners today, but I set the table with our lovely Friendly Village dishes, and made a little apple/walnut Waldorf Salad... with craisins... Mom's not a fan of mayonnaise (imagine!) so I made the dressing with about 5 T. Cool Whip, 1 T. Miracle Whip and 3 T. powdered sugar. It was yummy!
We watched the parade, and I loved the dog show... I am such an animal nut... Time for lots of visiting with each other and on the phone. My son went to his dad's family today... The fireplace is glowing tonight, and it's time for a cup of White Chocolate Mocha.... and candles... always candles!!!
I am grateful to have found so many wonderful friends in my life, including the dear ones I've made through these blogs. Have a happy holiday season. I am enjoying my five days off from school...
