Thanksgiving Nottingham Style

Thanksgiving Nottingham Style

Thanksgiving is a time that I’m very much accustomed to being surrounded by people that I love and care about. I’m very pleased to say that this year was no different in that respect. The rest of the Notts, Mark and Mary have become like family to me, and so Thanksgiving with them was less of a disappointment and more of a gathering of family for a delicious feast. J For the dinner I decided to make my mom’s corn pudding recipe. I’m not really sure what sparked my interest in making this dish, but I sure am glad that I did. I was scheduled to make my food the night before our Thanksgiving feast. (We had it a day after Thanksgiving.) I actually had a great time mixing and getting my corn pudding all ready to be cooked the next day. I blasted music and worked on it at the dinner table pretty late that night. There wasn’t anything stressful about. I really liked that. The next day was much more chaotic. We all had to make sure that our food could cook for the right amount of time. Organizing which dishes would be cooked here was a little difficult but luckily we had our ovens, the church’s ovens and Mark and Mary’s ovens. It all worked out great. In all we had: Turkey (of course), stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoe casserole, corn pudding, garlic mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, salad, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, German bread rolls and butterhorns. Then we all dressed nice and awaited our guests. When about everyone had gotten there we carried all of the mouth-watering food downstairs and set it up in the church hall. Then we had a dinner prayer by Mark Johns and then all filtered to the food table to grab some grub. The food was great! It was definitely a hit! And when it came to my corn pudding, everyone grabbed a little bit to be nice on their first round. But when they went up for seconds they devoured my mom’s corn pudding. J SUCCESS! We all sat around during the dinner and had great conversation, and the event ended with pumpkin and apple pies, pumpkin bars and chocolates. Yum. After dinner we all cleaned up. I went to town on dishes in the kitchen and by the time I had finished my share everything else seemed to be about done as well. Now that is what I call teamwork. And luckily in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we were able to have a few days of leftovers as well. Cheers ladies and gents
