I always thought I was 'half American' with most of my Family moving over there!!! :o) but the language IS different....I am not going to ask you,Jennifer, what certain foods on your delicious-sounding menu are!! maybe when you aren't so weary,huh? :o) xx and what a lovely feeling it must have been to glance round your table and see all your family together.

That sounds delicious! You must be quite a cook, Sister. Next T'giving, I'm showing up on your doorstep with all 3,000 of my kids. (Don't worry, my son will eat a peanut butter sandwich.)

Clarification: That's two (2) 9+ pound Greenberg Turkeys, and 5 bottles of delicious French wine (many second labels from prominent wineries) and a bottle of very nice champagne - and I don't even care for champagne. The wild rice pilaf was amazingly good, but I'm a sucker for wild rice. I'll leave the rest up to the expert - VetMommy.

Sounds wonderful. Can't wait to hear more (and maybe see the odd piccy or two). How did the kiddywinks behave? XXX

Here is the Autumn Succotash recipe. It was enjoyed by young and old. Stephanie brought the Cabernet sauce and Wild Rice Pilaf (wild rice, pecans, spinach, and a few cranberries). The dressing ie stuffing is easy - a bunch of mushrooms and onion sauteed, mixed with multigrain bread (cubed), broth, butter, and a plethora of herbs from my garden. Is it insane that we still have basil growing? That's Texas for ya!

Auntie Norma, the Pecan Pielettes are a made-up name for the miniature pecan pies that my dad makes. They are so good and so little you can't help but pop one or three in your gob!

Or you can even sneak three or four pielettes like Paigie did, sitting in Nana's accomodating lap...
