Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Sensing in-laws gravy 

Happy Thanksgiving (turkey from Google's 2011 turkey doodle generator)

Woohoo! Thanksgiving Day is here, and that brings us to ...

Thankful (Thurs)DAY #4: Thanksgiving Edition!

Today, the 3 things I'm thankful for are:

1) My dad-in-law's Frickin' Fantastic Gravy™. My sis-in-law and I most look forward to this singular aspect of Thanksgiving dinner. We joke (though only partially) that all the other food -- the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing -- is simply there to provide a Gravy Delivery Mechanism. Mmmm, turkey gravy ... ::drooling::

2) My folks-in-law. My mom- and dad-in-law are splendid folks, and they produced some pretty fine kids, too. ;-) Way back when Husband Mike was Boyfriend Mike, I spent my first holiday (Christmas) with his family, and that's when I learned that family gatherings can actually be an enjoyable experience. Coming from a crapulent home life and childhood, that was quite a revelation.

3) All 5 senses in (pretty much*) working order. It sure would be lousy if I couldn't taste that turkey gravy, and those other 4 senses are pretty handy, too.

Your turn! What 3 things are you thankful for today? :-D

Happy Thanksgiving! In my opinion, the turkey is merely a Cooking Vessel for the stuffing. IF it's my grandmother's stuffing recipe. Otherwise you can keep it and I'll just go for the green bean casserole and turnips :)
