It Seems To Me

It seems to me that this 10 lb turkey
sure provided well for this years

Dinner for family, a plate shared with
my professor neighbor.
She called complimenting the meal.
Stuffing she said because she is from the North.
Dressing I said because I am from the South.
Remarked it was the best she ever tasted.
So fussy am I -  never like any one's
dressing but mine or my mother's.
Always cook cornbread a few days before
to be crumbled.

Meat removed
and soon will be making white bean chili.
in the pantry and a small can of chili's was
on hand

Two small bags in freezer.  One for turkey salad,
one for another batch of soup and a container
in refrigerator for Callie to have some sprinkled
on her dry dog food.

Christmas is around the corner
and it seems this year has gone by so fast....

I have my tree up and last night Maggie pulled the tree skirt up into a nice ball in the middle of the living room.

You would have been a good neighbor to go to for cooking advice. YOu are a perfectionist and I am sure your dinner was wonderful. I did not cook dinner this year, but the one that I ate at my son's future mother's-in-law house was very good.

Tabor, thank you for the compliment. It was a simple dinner compared to the past and I think sometimes when we write things seem better they they are :)
Judy, :)

Sounds like a lovely meal. My dressing (stuffing) varies. One year I had sausage, apple and celery and it was wonderful. I had no recipe so really sorry I didn't write it down.

My deceased sisterinlaw did a chestnut stuffing that was to do but never shared the recipe.

How kind you were to include your neighbour.

WWW, thank you for visiting. I seem to use the same recipe year after year :)
