we are having Rock Cornish Game Hens, 1 per person, stuffed with Wild Rice Dressing.

of course, there is the traditional huge turkey with
 Marsha's Own Homemade Yellow Cornbread Dressing with Apples & Water Chestnuts 
(to give a bit of crunch) 
& some Pecans

the wines for Thanksgiving are always the most difficult as there are so many
different requirements for the different guests.
but I prefer, for myself, a very heavy red, with loads of sweetness...
while most of my girlfriends prefer the crispness of the whites.

the men prefer hard liquours, and it is at this time when the
Whiskey Sours
make their winter debut.

one of my uncles makes his trademark cocktails
and even if you hate whiskey you will love this !!

give thanks for ALL
bless everyone
& have a really wonderful day.

Go University of Texas Longhorns !!
(in honor of my departed husband, Ned Scott)

Sounds like a perfect holiday you will be having Marsha and the menu sounds yummy! Thank you for your blog and friendship...wishing you a Happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for the holiday wishes Marsha. Although a naturalized American (and still very British!) I do enjoy sharing this special holiday with family and friends. In England only 'harvest festival' comes close, but the turkey never appeared until Christmas dinner!!!

Enjoy each moment.

Clearly I missed a post because I was not aware that your husband had passed away. Please accept my condolences.
