Just the Two of Us

... for Thanksgiving.

We've been married 42 years - and that is how long we have NEVER been away from some of our family members for Thanksgiving, UNTIL NOW.

Ah, but we celebrated, just the two of us, and we had a ...

Here's Sam working...

Here's our simple table setting...

And with the food...

It was good.
It was ordered from WHOLE FOODS.
The turkey was excellent.
The cornbread dressing was good AFTER we drenched it with their delicious gravy.
The maple mashed sweet potatoes were great.
The green bean casserole was not so great.
The cranberry/orange relish was good.

We baked some Pillsbury biscuits that were super - with our real butter and honey. YUM.
And for dessert we had pumpkin pie from Market Street. It was divine (with Reddi Wip whipped cream on top).

(It was Sam's suggestion to order all of that food, just so you know.  Of course I didn't protest.) 

So we overate, of course.
I ALWAYS overeat on Thanksgiving. It is a TRADITION!!!

I hope YOU had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too.

P.S. We talked to my dear mother late yesterday. She had a good (though pureed) Thanksgiving meal. She was not feeling good, and ready to get out of that COVID isolation... hopefully soon. BUT this morning we talked to her - and she sounded like herself!! She said that this is the first day in a while that she has hope! Wow.
For that I am extremely thankful!!
Thank you so much for your prayers!!
