Today is our Thanksgiving Day. We are planning for family and friends to start showing up around lunch time today and will stay with us all day. Some people may even stay all night with us. This morning my husband has the yard and porch all set up and ready for the over flow of people we are expecting to start showing up. I am very excited and buzzing around making sure everything it ready.
Yesterday I started cooking so I can just enjoy everyone’s company today. What I am adding to our Thanksgiving Day Feast?
- 1 Baked Ham, sliced
- 1 Roasted Turkey (15 lbs) with dressing
- 1 large bowl of Collards
- 1 large bowl of Turnips greens with the roots
- 1 Lemon Pound Cake
- 1 Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing
- 2 Egg Custard pies
- Fresh Kumquats, Tangerines, Apples and Bananas
- 1 plater of sliced onions, tomatoes, pickles
- 1 saucer with homemade Cranberry Sauce
- 4 Jugs of Sweet Tea
The coffee Pot will be working over time today too. I just hope someone brings paper plates so we don’t have a lot of dishes to wash. What are your plans for today?
After eating our midday meal, we are saddling up our horses today and allowing the kids to ride along with the adults. We are bringing out the horse shoe game too. And for those that like to play basket ball we have that covered too.
The weather is sunny and a little cool with a high around 60 degrees F. We will still be able to sit outside and enjoy our desserts and coffee while we watch the 12 grandchildren playing along with our 6 children.
I am not worries about having to feed all the animals, because the kids think we own a petting zoo and they love helping feed the animals.
We here on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
