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