A little More than I Bargained For

I shall not complain anymore. I really put my foot in my mouth this time! the same day I hollered and shouted about the strain on (money wise) the Lord showed me otherwise. I got my Christmas bonus and a spiral sliced ham! Yippee! Praise the Lord! I am so glad he is in control and not me!

Thanksgicving will be at my parents (there would have eaten by themselves). Also, hubby's siters all wanted to have Thanksgiving at their own homes. We were invited to each but declined. We may go for a visit later, we'll see. His Dad is probably coming with us to my parents.

Hubby is really missing his Mom right now. He wanted some of her chicken and dressing so bad. So, I found her recipe and made it for him. It was NOT without a lot of effort though. I have never made dressing before and her recipe is a little different than my Mom's. I decided than hubby, the boys and I are going to have our own little family Thanksgiving tonight.

I have our ham just out of the oven (turkey and ham at my parents tomorrow), sweet tea made, gravy made, working on potato salad, need to make the skillet cream corn and green beans as well as the sweet potato casserole. I have the honey apple cake in the oven now.

Yum! I will take some of the above to my parents tomorrow. The dressing will stay here and our ham.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great day before!

I'm so happy for you about the bonus Marva. You've worked so hard this year, you definitely deserve it.

My heart goes out to your hubby. It's always hard when there is an empty seat during a holiday. It was sweet and thoughtful of you to recreate his favorite dishes.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving~
