Well... its true

Who else ... after eating chips and dips (some call em crisps) and watching football all morning and afternoon, could eat a 7/8 course meal..then serve 3 pies and 4 layer cakes for desert!!!

Gwad!!! I cant wait, ... Nothing like it...

Settin round with family and friends ... moaning and belching with the late game on the telly, Lets see.....my aunt wrote to tell me the menu.........turkey, ham, dressing, sweet potatoes, prickled beets, green bean casserole, green beans, cranberry salad, mashed potatoes, pecan pie, pumpkin pie and mom trying to push a second round of mince-meat pie and ice cream with the after dinner coffee, ohh and broccoli with a nice cheese sauce and rice casserole, and rolls ... Now tell me...what am i to bring? Creamed onions... the lil onions ... in a white sauce ... like a casserole with grated cheese has always been a fav of mine. Home made candies and cookies like fine art and the most fabulous chocolate fudge and divinity, Yes, home made!. And mashed potatoes.... don't forget the "spuds", and candied yams, followed by bread pudding was the tradition until my mother died.

And gravy .... at least 5 gal.

We always had dinner at my grandparents ... my grandpa was a character... he always had an extra place set at the table, no matter how many were to be there for dinner. He would say.... "That’s so when God looks down on the world... he will know where to send those in need of a meal "

Funny thing was... when I was a young lad, I don’t ever remember that place ever going unfilled. somehow.... someone, always showed up at the last minute, usually accompanied bye our pastor. When I was a tike, when honor was the currency of manhood... I though that was the way the world was... you keep your word and helped those in need.

And that's what us American celebrate on the last Thursday in November. Just so ya all know!

Now, if someone would be kind enough to pass the gravy down this way. again !

Godspeed and a joyous and happy holiday season to all.

I will tell anyone this, i quit drinking and smoking after about 18 years, that has been a piece of cake, the hardest thing for me is being on a freaking diet I been on! hamburgers,chips, junk food and sweets are the hardest things to quit than to pick up a smoke or a can of beer! But thats me, some people can be different I imagine. So yeah agree,gluttony is soooooooo easy LOL!

Sounds like you know how to have a good feast, and a good time. Can you get the recipe for the homemade divinity? I love it and can't find a good recipe.
