I have just returned from the most wonderful Thanksgiving I have had since returning to Kentucky. My brother, Larry, and Edie have only been in their new home for about 2weeks and everything is already perfect. I don't know how she did it, plus all the Christmas decoration and tree. She said Larry was a huge help. Right away I knew someone had taken my brother and left a droid is his place.
Her table was covered with her mothers beautiful lace tablecloth and she used her mom's silver and china. Beautiful! I have already posted the menu earlier and the food was out of this world. Edie had made a Pumpkin Cheese Cake, Pecan Pie and Lemon Chess Pie. She has promised all the recipes
Another reason I knew my "real" brother was not there is because he deep fried the turkey to perfection and carved it like a chef. I'm really worried.
The Durham Family were special guest, Gary, Ruth and their son Rich. What a wonderful family. If you think I can talk! This lady needs her own blog. They even remembered my dad. That's always good for lots of laughs.
If you are ever in doubt about an appetizer for a holiday gathering make The Uber Cake from October Farm.It really is a fabulous dessert, however everyone wanted "just a little bite" before dinner, so half the cake was gone before we even ate. Thank goodness for Edie's desserts. I have a strange family.
My "real" brother returned just before I was ready to leave because I had to beg for the turkey carcass to make Turkey Bone Gumbo tomorrow.
I hope everyone had as great a Thanksgiving as I did.
Thank you Larry and Edie.
