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.
