Happy Thanksgiving

I collect vintage postcards and this is one of my favorites. I told my daughters that I am having a simple, "modified" Thanksgiving dinner this year. It will be a small gathering, so I am only baking a turkey breast with the usual side items.

A Kid-Friendly Menu

Turkey with Cornbread and Sausage Dressing (old recipe)
Cranberry Jello Salad
Corn Casserole (my daughter's recipe - the kids love it)
Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans
Macaroni and Cheese
Steamed Broccoli (the green vegetable)
Yeast Rolls
Pumpkin Bars
Apple Pie

Happy Thanksgiving!

Old Photos

I've been going through old photos, some of which have been damaged from being stored in boxes over time. I tried to save the ones I could.
The canals of Amsterdam. We took a boat ride on the "John F. Kennedy."
This is the famous Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany. Pretzels and beer...we skipped the beer because our (then) two-year daughter was with us.
Most of my photos from Paris are damaged, such as this one. But the color gives it a strange, vintage look.


London Bridge

London...it was rainy and foggy during most of our stay. I loved London! Gorgeous gardens, magnificent history, and plays every night.



Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
