A Small Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving this year. In the past, we have usually had over 30 people, but this year was quite different. It was only the two sets of grandparents and our nephew Greg. Greg just came back from deployment and I think some real cooking was just what he needed! Tommy and I made the turkey with my Great Great Grandma’s turkey oven. It is amazing that it still works….but especially how well it works! I also made a fabulous chocolate cake from one of my favorite cook books, The Cake Doctor. The grandparents brought the side dishes. I truly felt that it was a fun time held by all with little stress with regard to preparation.
