In the wake of Thanksgiving, I am filled with gratitude. This year, my daughter CeCi (formerly known as Beanie in this blog) fixed Thanksgiving dinner. I only added a few traditional dishes; things I said I wanted to bring. CeCi carried on a newer tradition. Her daughter Miss K wrote something she was thankful about for each guest. A little way each guest gifted Miss K, without the guest’s name attached. The “gifts” got distributed randomly to everyone. Before the meal, each guest read a “gift.” Miss K had some wonderful thanks for the guests around the table. I wonder if she was thankful for my “flexibility,” or “my smile,” or “how smart I am,” or what. I’ll never know.
I know particular order, here’s the other things I’m thankful for this Monday:
“If only people knew about the Malliard Reaction,” I say to anyone who will listen. “They would understand why avoiding diabetes is so important. And if it’s too late, controlling blood sugar is essential.”
What’s the Malliard Reaction?
Oven roasted turkey: Yum, Yum.
Crusty rolls warm from the oven. Mmmm…mmm.
Gravy made from turkey roux… Uhhh, huh.
Melt-in-your-mouth flaky pie crust and caramelized pecan pie. Smack-smack.
What makes these tasty Thanksgiving day dishes taste so good?
