Remembering Thanksgiving

After Dad retired, he started fixing the Thanksgiving turkey. Mom appreciated the break from cooking after fixing so many meals for so many youngsters over the years.

She was a little jealous though of the attention Dad got for cooking. His slow-cooked brisket or his pizza with homemade crust got rave reviews from the family.

The Thanksgiving table always featured some of Mom’s tasty cinnamon apple rings that were really cucumbers in disguise.

One thought on “Remembering Thanksgiving

  1. I remember Dad being in charge of the turkey even before he retired, but you’re right about Mom getting her nose out of joint about Dad and his cooking and issues about the kitchen. When he started making pecan pies, she said it was like no one had ever made a pecan pie before. 😉
