Any plans for Thanksgiving my Friends? Any special dishes to prepare?


the dogs' mother said...

All our Thanksgiving guests took off for Boise where new baby was finally convinced that her mother was not going to carry her until kindergarten. Baby was due first week of November. I don't know if I can make a *small* Thanksgiving dinner. Told my BIL he better stop by on the way back so I can stuff him full of leftovers.

What is that little chickie doing IN the garden?

I'm going to an all catered Thanksgiving dinner and not cooking one thing.

Dani said...

Froggy, yeah, small just never happens on Thanksgiving. :)

Shamy, ROCK ON Girlfriend! xoxo

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up does'nt it?

Jenny said...

Family is hosting this year and I'm making southern fried fish. And a trip to Whole Foods bakery for desserts.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Dani said...

Anon, BAWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

Boxer, Happy Turkey Day to you too!
Love the Christmas video of Coco that you did last week. :)

gobble! gobble! gobble!

Still recovering from the hysterectomy, but recovering is good--much better than the alternative.

We are having the fam over to our house, but am requesting a potluck this year. AND my mom cleaned the house for me.

Yes, Virginia, there are advantages to uterine fibroids.

Dani said...

Melissa, ((hugs)) you rest that body of yours!

Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours. :)

Bananas! I just had a bowl of little sugar bananas with passionfruit and lychee honey, all local! (have you thought about growing passionfruit?)

Look at dat silly little chicky! Cute!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Dani. Is mom out of the hospital yet? Hope so! Enjoy! xo

Dani said...

Yep, she's doing the rehab thing now. Lots of baby steps.

I am in charge of the turkey roasting this year.
Takes one to cook one?
Anyway, I am cooking 2 of em, because last year I did NOT get any turkey sandwiches the next day and that is the BEST part of the holiday meal to me.
Bear is my sous chef.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Your garden is tres lush!

That little chicken is a doll! AND BANANAS!!! WOW! I would love to grow a banana plant here!

Happy Thanksgiving, Dani!


Granny Annie said...

Is that really a banana tree? Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. My kids brought all the food. I only had to fix mashed potatoes and bake a few frozen pies. They even did the clean-up and the grandkids took care of all my livestock chores. (PS for THE BEST frozen pumpkin and pecan pies, go to Braums.) Ron and I were hosted in our own home.


I need to get some banana trees. Mine all died out. Photos gorgeous as always.

Beautiful! Late to the party here since I'm still waiting on regular internet. We all went out to eat on Wednesday night; and then on Thursday the girls asked for Thanksgiving Dinner!!!!!!! So I cobbled together something hasty involving rotisserie chicken, stove top stuffing, packaged gravy, and real mashed potatoes. The kidlets were satisfied and it tasted better than I imagined.

Yesterday they decorated the cottage for Christmas. It looks fantastic!!

I look forward to being back more regularly by the end of the week! All I want for Christmas is my home internet...
