Instead of a quiz

These days it tends to be a small crowd of immediate family at my Thanksgiving table. But back in the days when it was a more mixed crowd, we'd often get the conversation going by playing everyone's favorite game: What part of the Thanksgiving dinner are you and why? If I had the time and inclination to figure out how to create quizzes on Quizilla or some such, I could come up some quiz that would tell you your results.

Instead, I'll just let you tell me. I'd have to say this year my life feels like gravy: many disperate elements coming together that could either turn our really wonderfully or really badly depending on a lot of factors--some not under my direct control.

How about you?

Mashed potatoes.

They are totally unneccessary when compared with over-achievers like turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce. But they are a lot of fun to have around. They are all about comfort and companionship.

I'm pecan pie...a little nutty on top!

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope it's a good one for you all!

I would like to be the cranberry sauce that spices the whole meal up.

This year I was my pumpkin crisp dessert -- thrown together at the last minute, largely by guess and by golly, but turning out much better than one might expect under the circumstances.;-)

I think I'm cranberry sauce, too. A mix of bitter and sweet, and different each time you make it.
