This is the first Thanksgiving in a couple of years that I have been able to be in Texas for the holiday, as the last four I was buried in snow in Ann Arbor. I got in yesterday afternoon and we headed to the Hill Top Cafe (it’s the one on the top of the hill) and I saw this cookbook for sale:
I’m probably breaking some copyright law… but it’s my mom’s recipe!
For the big feast we had our family friends, the Morrisons, and my granddaddy Dan came over from Kilgore.
One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories is from six years ago when I was studying abroad in Italy. My parents, grandparents and aunt Brynda all came over to visit me and we had a non-traditional dinner at a restaurant in Rome. Well, except for the fact that my mom, fabulous as ever, brought over turkey napkins for the feast. Needless to say the Italian waiter was a bit confused.
