One thing I love about Thanksgiving is homemade turkey soup. I remember the smell that would fill the house as a kid when my mother would cook up a pot. I never loved the vegetables so she would sit and remove everything except the turkey. I am not great in the kitchen but I make a grand attempt with my soup. I dropped the carcass into the pot around 9 this morning. Celery, carrots, onion all which I will remove. What can I say, one good thing about homemade is it is made my way! The house smells wonderful.
Yesterday was a very nice day. Watching the parade with the girls was a pleasant start to the day. They love to sing and dance around with the performers. The big balloons are always a hit. My brother came over for a few hours and the kids had a blast. Frank did a great job with the Turkey. And for desert, the extremely untraditional, yet totally delicious chocolate cupcakes made by Frank and the girls.
I was a good day! I enjoy spending time with my brother’s family and look forward to Christmas!
