We haven't decided what we're doing this year. I do know that I'm going to avoid my father's family like the plague though.

For dessert, I'll probably make a pumpkin pie and a pumpkin jelly roll, too.

Thank you. No one has ever complained, so I must be doing something right.

No, not banana-nut bread (though thanks for the suggestion!). Monkey bread is also known as pull-apart bread. To make it, you take pieces of uncooked bread dough, dip it in melted butter, layer it in a Bundt or tube cake pan and bake. In some cases, cinnamon and sugar are mixed with the melted butter to make a glazed monkey bread.

We will drive about 3 hours to visit my son, daughter-in-law and 6 month old grand daughter. Oh, who am I kidding...I am going to see little Lily and her parents are just a bonus . My son is a great cook so we will also be enjoying a great meal.

Builder I am sorry that your wife is no longer able to throw the parties that she loved doing. It must be so frustrating for her.

My SO volunteered us to make Thanksgiving dinner for his friends in college this coming Sunday. (Which means I get to cook and clean, he gets to hang out) He owes me big for this one. Then on Thursday, I get to cook and clean again, to have my family over for Thanksgiving. Hopefully black friday will bring a good mattress deal so I can get my tempurpedic. Sleep will be much needed after this holiday.

The kids and grand-kids are coming from North Dakota and Kansas. "Over the river and through the woods" - etc. etc. - Fortunately, I have been raising these turkeys that have 4 drumsticks!

Checking the extended forecasts and hoping no giant "death blizzards" show up!
