Good things are cooking....

My lovely daughter (Shanda) volunteered to make the Corn Bread Dressing for our Thanksgiving meal....   This made me Happy, Happy, Happy!  It actually made me happy for two reasons....
For one, I don't have to do it, and for two.....I'm happy to see her venturing out in her cooking skills.  She made it a couple of years ago, and I must say, it tasted fantastically YUMMY!

Right now, I have some great aromas coming from my kitchen.....  HOMEMADE GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE - done!  PISTACHIO SALAD - done!   PIES - done!  HAM - done!  TURKEY - done! CREAMED POTATOES - done!  ( I know...some of you are thinking "she has already creamed the potatoes")  

I'm actually trying a new recipe on the potatoes...My friend Marsha, gave me this recipe...Some of you may have tried it before, but this will be a first for me.  

5 pounds of potatoes (cooked and mashed)
8 oz. of sour cream
8 oz. of cream cheese
Butter to taste
salt and pepper

put into a casserole dish and refrigerate over night.....bake in the oven the next day! Top with cheese.

Tomorrow morning, all I have to do is make the tea, fix my candied sweet potatoes, make my deviled eggs, fix the beans and cook the rolls!!  Oh, and roast the corn...

This is what I call a feast and I am so very Thankful to have family to share it with.....

To all my USA friends.....

To all my other friends......

I have made those potatoes before and they are scrumptious! Last night my dad's wife informed me that instead of roast they ordered a turkey dinner. I was relieved to have a traditional dinner, but if I'd known I would've made my homemade cornbread dressing. Have a blessed day, Shug.

I know the scent of a great Thanksgiving meal. Aroma's wafted my home yesterday. It was wonderful. There is just something so special about the scent of spices and turkey.
Your dinner sounds 2die4! Would you mind sharing your recipe for that Pistachio Salad? It would be a hit for Christmas, right? I've made those awesome potatoes. Aren't they great?

Shug -
My mother made those potatoes one time when Hallee and Shanda were over. If memory serves me right, they licked the dish! Hope ya'll enjoyed them today!! Love that Shanda is making the dressing and am most impressed!
