    One time I was going to the Circus in Richmond. As I passed by some PETA protesters, I said, "l LOVE animals!" They smiled. Then, as I went by I said, "They taste DELICIOUS!!" You should have seen the double takes! :lol

    I got that photo from http://allrecipes.com/ where I've found a lot of the recipes I'm planning on using for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Yep, we're celebrating Thanksgiving all the way over here in Sweden. I really wanted Krof to experience an authentic American holiday dinner, and I've also invited another American expatriate who is in the same Swedish class I'm in, and his wife.

    On my thanksgiving menu so far:

    roast turkey
    turkey gravy
    mashed potatoes
    candied sweet potatoes
    fresh cranberry sauce
    corn bread
    Swedish apple pie

    I realize I don't have a vegetable but I'll come up with something before tomorrow.

    Edit: my guests are bringing salad and wine :) All is right with the world.

    I'm thankful for my children and their spouses and their kids. I'll see all 4 grandkids over the weekend, although not all at the same time. My son (he has my name (the 3rd), and his son is the 4th - [IV]) and family will be here today and we will all be with my oldest daughter's family with her two sons tomorrow. Then we go to the mountains Sat. to be with my other daughter and husband and newist grandson. There's nothing I like better than being with my kids and grandsons!

    Hope everyone's having a good Thanksgiving!

    Am I the only freak whose family's celebrating the holiday on Saturday? *sigh* We're nothing if not utterly dedicated to convenience.

    Sounds like an old Irish blessing ;) :lol And may you have just enough leftovers to prevent your having to think up meals, but not enough to make you sick of turkey. And may no one come down with salmonella poisoning from an undercooked turkey :eek
