Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from our Monkey family to yours! So far, most of the dinner has been made or is in the oven. On the menu for us:

  • Cajun turkey breast
  • Oven roasted turkey breast
  • Sausage, apple, and cranberry stuffing
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Corn souffle
  • Sizzled green beans with crispy prosciutto and pine nuts
  • Berry nut freeze
  • Wheat rolls
  • Pumpkin cheesecake
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Pecan pie
  • Apple crisp
Everything's looking good so far. We're watching the Redskins play on TV and will be eating around 6 after it ends. Dadda monkey is still trying to convince me we should eat earlier, but it's Thanksgiving DINNER for a reason. It's also the way I grew up and it's hard to get me to change my ways. It's just us this year (and every year since we've been together), but it's nice to have a day to just be together with no place to be and have a chance to reflect. We're really thankful for our healthy children, our friends and family, the roof over our head, and the delicious meal we're going to have. Hope your Thanksgiving is as special as ours has been.
