Happy Holidays Everyone.....

Tailgating, Texas Style

my entire family was together yesterday,
my son, daughter-in-law, their 2 small children, Sheriff & Archer,
my daughter & her fiance,
one of my best guy friends in the world,
a professor from the University of Houston,
with Jeanne & Henri,  who are the best cooks I know...

it was a lovely day and went on into the evening.

i made the cornbread dressing, the turkey gravy (my own version which is
actually quite good (no livers, yuck) ), 2 pumpkin chiffon pies, homemade
cranberry sauce, and a chocolate/grand marnier bundt cake to DIE for.

i fell into bed at 10:30 last night, counting all my blessings...

i wish everyone could be as fortunate as I, and as happy...

love to all ...
