Peach State says: It’s Here…Happy Thanksgiving!

20121122-075420.jpg

The children are all snug in their beds…wait…rewind…wrong holiday. But, the family are still sleeping away upstairs as I take a moment while the traditional orange cinnamon rolls bake. “It’s Here…Happy Thanksgiving!”

Traditions start for many reasons…our traditional cinnamon rolls originated with my mother. No huge breakfast…no time to cook it or room in the kitchen for anything else. My mother would cook everything but the pies on Thanksgiving morning so unless you were called to duty you avoided the kitchen. She would bake the cinnamon rolls while preparing the turkey for the oven early in the morning. “My turkey will be in the oven in about 15 minutes.” According to the time charts I will have approximately 4-41/2 hours till the turkey is ready. Dinner should be on the table about 1PM at the latest.

I must go and prepare the turkey for the oven…Have a wonderful day! And for those of you who are celebrating Thanksgiving…Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Holidays seem to be the time when traditions are most appreciated! I am thankful for traditions! Ours is the dressing! The recipe has been passed down through the family for several generations now. I have had the privilege of making the dressing for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas for the past couple of decades. My tradition has been to solicit the help of a child when mixing the ingredients. It’s fun, since we have to get our hands in it, and it gets them interested in it. My niece, who will be 12 years old in a few days just happened to stroll up to my house this morning, so I volunteered her! I got a cute snippet of video on my phone of her mixing it with her hand while commenting on how gross it is! Hopefully, it will be a precious memory for her one day!
