Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. (Maybe because it's close to my birthday and I always thought it was a part of my birthday celebration...)
But this year we will be traveling farther than ever to see family.
Needless to say I am even more thankful this year that we get to see family (and eat some good food.)
*Ya'll did you know that in Indiana they make Stuffing instead of Dressing. Who knew??? I gotta go back to Tennessee just to get some dressing. ;) Maybe I should get the recipes too so I can introduce my Indiana friends to some southern style dressing. I tried to explain it to my friends today and just didn't do it justice...
Last night my mom asked me what I wanted for Thanksgiving. Daniel was sitting right beside me and said- Why does she even ask? Can't we just have the same things we always have. My mom said- It's more of a test than an actual suggestion. :) Here was my reply: The standard Turkey and Dressing (not a favorite, but a must have for Turkey Day), Broccoli Casserole- my favorite, Sweet Potato Casserole- a close second, green beans, slaw, and my mom said she'd make crescents this year.
Yumm. I can't wait. Definitely worth an 8 hour drive.
Hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Any of you have Thanksgiving favorites that you just have to have to call it Thanksgiving???
