We look at today a little differently than many people...there is no family to share a feast....The kitchen won't be quite as busy as when it was preparing courses ...another meat for Mom and me (not turkey fans) and vegetables aplenty for Thanksgiving soup. Those are fond memories and will be forever etched in our minds and our hearts. It is the 4th anniversary of my Mom's passing and with no family left....we now celebrate Friendsgiving.
We never attend any kind of event without bringing something to share. Grandma always made cranberry orange relish and we re-created it with the grated cranberries, whole oranges and just a tiny bit of sugar..garnished with mandarin oranges, orange slices and mint leaves.
We think food should be fun....to eat, to prepare...to enjoy and so our fruit turkey became part of the menu.
Nothing like a little decoration
for dessert that hits the spot next to
the array of pies....and our Reese's
turkeys were a big hit with everyone from the kids to the oldest adult....easy to do and great to watch the smiles around the table.
It was a day to create new memories and enjoy the company of friends....for that we are most grateful.. Hoping you and yours had the Happiest of Thanksgivings and look forward to a wonderful holiday season. Hansons Both
