Not much happened over the Christmas holiday. My sweet daughter pretty much took over and prepared a wonderful Christmas morning breakfast.
I'm sorry we did not take a picture with the food on the table, but I had to share these pictures of the bacon being prepared to go into the oven.
We did have a nice tree and the little village was on display.
I almost don't know where to start. It has been a very challenging holiday with my wrist surgery. Christmas was quiet and low key, and I was dreading the 26th when the staples were to be removed. It certainly was no picnic taking out over 30 staples from three incision sites. I'm also going to physical therapy to try to get my fingers moving again.
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. I have missed being a part of blogging, and I am praying for a full recovery and use of my right hand.
Dear Readers of Just a Little Southern Hospitality... My mom wanted me to post and let you all
know that she broke her wrist yesterday and will be out of blogging
commission for a while. She appreciates all of your comments and wishes she could reply to them all! Prayers are
appreciated. Hopefully she will be back to blogging very soon! Daughter
This is a pretty popular subject during this time of year :-) And I'm sure there are lots of left over recipes to be found. But one day, as I was blog surfing, I came across a fabulous recipe to use for my left over baked potatoes.
This is the best recipe for Baked Potato Soup that I've ever made.
And I think you will agree if you give it a try. It's also a great way to use up those left over baked potatoes.
And then of course, you may have some creative chefs in your home.
Have some fun. You can find the recipe at Jamie's blog
Thanksgiving is a holiday specifically set aside for the purpose of thanking God for His provisions and blessings. It may be the oldest, continually celebrated holiday in America.
Much of the food served at modern Thanksgiving dinners includes items from the very first celebration: turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes, numerous other vegetables, bread and puddings.
Initially this meal was held to thank God for the blessings of a good crop, having food for the winter.
Thanksgiving is a very family oriented holiday. Relatives often travel great distances to be with each other to celebrate. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel time of the entire year.
This year our Thanksgiving is taking a new path. We have always celebrated Thanksgiving with my husbands family. But with the home going of my Mother in Love this past spring, we must all start making our own new family traditions.
What are your plans for this Thanksgiving?
May your Thanksgiving be a time of joy and blessings.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands ~ Psalm 19:1
