I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Another Thanksgiving for the record books

This year there were only 3 of us for Thanksgiving dinner.  Since I don't know how to "cook small" for holidays (and since I promised leftovers to go back to Austin), I made a ton of food.

For the first time this year, I made homemade cranberry sauce.  I don't usually eat the stuff, but after tasting this, I decided I like it now.  (My cranberry sauce aficionado says it's way better than the canned stuff.)

I can't believe how easy it is to make!

I made 4 pies and a pumpkin cake this year.  I had to laugh after putting them in the fridge:

It was great to get to talk to our son in Denmark.  We texted with our daughter and other son.  Our other son was working and our daughter and her fiance spent their Thanksgiving serving Tgiving dinner at a food kitchen.

She sent pictures of their pre-Thanksgiving dinner from the night before:

(She's getting to be like me...not taking pictures of herself, lol!)

I haven't yet decided what I'll do today but whatever it is will not include standing for hours cooking like I did the past couple of days.  Stitching, perhaps?

Happy stitching!

Everything looks delicious. My daughter also makes the cranberry sauce herself because she says the same thing about canned cranberry sauce.
