  • 2019 November 28 ThursdayThanksgiving in Liberty Hill, Texas

was up at 6 and wrote a devotion for my Musings blog. I then prepared some items to take to the Thanksgiving gathering at my son, Arik’s. The foods I prepared were in remembrance of my mother.

om always had a large garden (1/4 – 1/2 acre) with lots of green beans. When It was time to pick and can the beans, there was always a large pot of green beans, bacon, and chicken stock bubbling on the back burner most of the day. So, I made green beans with bacon and chicken stock and cooked it over night on low in a crockpot.

nother thing that she would make on rare occasions was Yorkshire pudding. After oven roasting a beef roast,she would remove the meat, mix some flour, eggs and other stuff, pour it into the roaster, and pop it back into the oven. I used a lot of shortcuts such as pancake mix, beef soup starter, and some canned beef. I hope it will taste something like what I remember ought Mom’s.

hursday’s are when I check my blood clotting factor (INR) and my hands need to be clean and warm; doing dishes is a perfect way to accomplish both at once. My INR was exactly where it was supposed to be.

e had a great meal and wonderful conversation. The meal we a cooperative event. The conversation was helped along by a set of cards fussy asked things like, “What do you think the world will be like in 25 years?”

God bless and g’nite.
