Missouri Bounty

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s all about the food and the company and what can be better than that? I’ve just experienced again the gathering of family, the laughter and occasional angst, the hugs and amazement over new babies, college news, upcoming holiday plans, and the tasty offerings. There was Susie’s hospitality and gorgeous turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, and much more, Kathy’s knock-out desserts that we’re still nibbling on today, brisket and sweet potatoes, so many dishes that the table was laid full. I even felt joy at seeing the pastel-colored jello salads (gasp). It was a beautiful, bountiful day.
