Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.  As we think back on this year, we truly can shout praises for all the marvelous things that our Lord has blessed us with in 2014. 
The biggest blessing, bar none is that my daughter's family all survived the fire February 2.
At the time, it was a huge disaster, but now that we look back and see all the blessings that has come out of it, we can't begin to thank our Lord enough.
I have been cooking all day, I always make the corn bread dressing (some of you might call it stuffing), the home made rolls, a jello salad that my Mom created and this year I fixed a dish of scalloped corn.  Jon doesn't like it and I love it, so this gives me a chance to take it for our Thanksgiving day dinner.  Everything is ready or prepped to finished tomorrow.  Lori does the turkey, pies, mashed potatoes, corn (yes we will have 2 kinds), green beans that I canned for her and perhaps a layered salad.  Oh we sure love our family dinners.
I would love to hear what are your family traditions?  Do you eat at noon or later?  Do you stuff your turkey?  Do you call it stuffing or dressing?  Do you brine your turkey?  If so with what?
Come on friends, let me hear from you.
Again, I send many best wishes to you and your family.

We're thankful for so many things here also, but none as bad your family fire. Glad for you that all are ok from it. As for the turkey, I cook it and it's stuffed. All the kids and some of the grandkids will be here. Eventually all the family will be here but one granddaughter and we'll see her at Christmas. So will be a wonderful day. Got salad done and pies too, but still have home made rolls to make. Can't eat without my Mother's roll recipe. Happy Thanksgiving. Edna

Aren't you the curious one...LOL!
We are going to a friends for dinner and all I have to bring is my jello cranberry salad..a snap to make! When we do eat at home my husband does the turkey on the grill - DELICIOUS! I make dressing, yams, green bean casserole with the onion rings, the cranberry salad, and pie. Here is the salad recipe:
1 cup boiling water; 1 small pkg. raspberry (or red) sugar-free jello; 1 can Ocean Spray Whole Berry cranberry sauce; 1 8 ounce light sour cream. combine boiling water and jello, dissolve; add the whole berry cranberry sauce and mash up a bit; let cool slightly; add sour cream and whip with wire whip or mixer. refrigerate overnight. Not too sweet and not to tangy...just right - YUM!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my is snowing here, so have a safe trip into Michigan!! I think this might be the first year ever I didn't cook a turkey, I sure miss the smell. We are going to my daughter's, all I had to make was the cranberry/orange relish and butternut squash and I "was" to bring a pie. I had gotten the recipe to make my shopping list and can't for the life of me find it!! I thought I might of put it in a blog post, but haven't found it there yet. Anywho...have a wonderful day with your family, be safe and enjoy!!
