It’s here! Thanksgiving Day! A day to stop and give thanks. How awesome is that? I feel especially thankful this year for my new on-line buds. I can’t tell you enough how much my connections mean to me…I thank God for you~ Now, let’s Make this a Happy Day!
ps…there is an ever-so-slight chance that I may have messed up The Husband’s famous dressing…you know how important a successful dressing is to him, he practiced cooked a pan last week…weeellll, one of my jobs yesterday was to make the cornbread for the dressing. So I did. Eight little boxes! Now, I don’t eat cornbread. gasp, I just don’t like it. How was I, cornbread hater that I am, supposed to know that this:
Is not the same thing as this:
Yesterday I pinched off a bite and thought: Ummm, this cornbread is better than I remember. Sweeter than I remember. And that my friends should have been my first clue.
Unfortunately, I was oblivious and The Husband, after 3 hours slaving in the kitchen with his secret 3 generation old dressing recipe, interupted The Santa Clause (movie) and said : “My dressing is sweet Robin.” (It’s either a really good thing when he calls me Robin or a really bad bad thing.) “And there’s no reason for my dressing to be sweet…unleeess you used corn muffin mix instead of corn bread mix.”
This is when my eyes got half as big as my head and I started talking really fast. Saying words that didn’t go together. You know, word salad. Anyhoo…
If you are reading this and will be attending Thanksgiving dinner with me…DO NOT speak about these things at dinner! Just say: “Ummm, this is the best darn dressing I’ve ever had or ever hope to have in my entire life.” Go on to say…”The sweet and savory taste of this dressing is unique and delectable. Praises to the one who made it.”(or something close to that.)
I’ll let you know if I’m in the dog house… 🙂
pss. If the dressing is horrible, I have a plan. I’m blaming Walmart. They had approximately 700 boxes of corn muffin mix on the shelves and no cornbread packets. I think I could get some big bucks if I sue for them for ruining Thanksgiving Dinner.
