Patsy Cline's eggs are small
Cornbread that looked great but tasted off
For all my childhood and adulthood, for that matter, this same Jello salad was on our table for holidays. Mama used Black Cherry Jello and Strawberry Banana Jello. two cans of fruit cocktail, plus loads of bananas and Delicious Apples. This delicious dish was always served in her bowl shaped like an apple. The bowl was used for nothing else, and the Jello salad was never served in anything else. I have prepared this myself since the year my mother died. It is necessary to my mental health, plus it is delicious.
Steaming giblet gravy
My giblet gravy has no giblets. I just cannot bear to dice them up. Yuck. Besides, the chickens loved them. I do regret not putting the neck meat in because neck meat is the most delicious meat on a turkey.
I do dice boiled eggs for the gravy. Those are mandatory. Do you ever put diced boiled eggs in your Thanksgiving gravy? For people who are grossed out by eggs in gravy, I use a fork and mash then to smithereens. YUM!
Everything tasted off today, with nothing tasting like I had cooked it. I must be taking medicine that is causing this.
Usually, my mother made candied yams that were delicious. I had these sweet potatoes baked, so I ate those. She never made green bean casserole, but we had green beans. Actually, this is the first time I have had green bean casserole for Thanksgiving instead of green beans. I don't think I will make it again for Thanksgiving. I always made succotash, but today it was just corn with no Lima beans.
Mama never served corn. She served mashed potatoes. After all, the gravy needs potatoes! Now, I sort of wish I had made mashed potatoes, too. Mama served all our Thanksgiving desires, things we wanted her to serve, along with the traditional things.
Is there anyone who did not have their Thanksgiving meal on Thursday? Is there something like the Jello salad that is really not part of most Thanksgiving meals that is necessary for your holiday meal? Who puts diced boiled eggs in giblet gravy?
