I had to add this picture–as it shows the “Green Bean Casserole” right under the plate. Now I have seen this dish in magazines and on TV, but I have never had this traditional holiday dish. It will now become my new thing to request every year. Green beans are not my favorite thing to eat but this dish is “DA BOMB”!! It is so good, that I went and grabbed seconds of it and never did get any of the pies. (Well I had a piece of apple pie at Yavapai on Thanksgiving day and a piece of Pumpkin pie the day after.)
You can not have a holiday dinner without: yams or sweet potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie and now green bean casserole. That’s all I really need on my plate.

Sherry (the blonde) was directing Hope (kid in pink) where to arrange the many pans of food. We ended up having 9 cooked turkeys and 4 or 5 different kinds of stuffing along with way to much other stuff to list.

My main complaint for tonight is that it was sooo cold outside, and we had this meal outside of the rec center. But I am so glad I got invited to this meal as it will be my last Thanksgiving here and it will go down as one of my favorite in a lifetime.

Forrest and most of the kids got together at Liz’s house in Maine. They had to travel through snow to get there. I’m thankful I didn’t have to deal with that.
