cooking thanksgiving meals

every year me and all my little sisters help my dad stuff the turkey. I like stuffing it and helping getting it ready. I also help my mom cook pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin pie. and she makes this other pie that I am alergic to. pecan pie. I am alergic to nuts. every nut instead of almonds. I love almonds. the almonds I like tha most are the smokehouse ones. and my mom when she makes the crust she makes it look perfect. do you guys know how moms make everything so perfect? I don't. I think that is a mystery that I will never find out. I know one thing I will never be a better cook than my mom. anyway back to where we where in cooking the thanksgiving meals. we make mashed potatos that I hate I don't like the tecture. and then there are the discusting vegtebles. I don't realy like vegtebles but I eat them............. ok ok I won't lie I eat them somtimes. and then there is egg nog and stuff like that. but we don't make the egg nog we buy it from the store. and then when it is all done we sit down and enjoy it and we pretty much stare at our food the whole time and then once in a while we look at each other and talk for a few minutes. except last year was louder. I just remember eating the thanksgiving meal on thanksgiving mostly staring at our food.

I think it is wonderful how your family gets involved with the meal preparation. When a person is allergic to nuts does this mean touching them as well as eating them?

Slick, you bring up a great point about perfect cooking. What makes it perfect is the combination of your mom's love for you guys, which is beyond measure and comprehension, and the love you have for her, which covers over any mistakes she may make. It's the same love that makes my wife think she's married to Tom Selleck when all I see is John Candy.

That was a cute post. I don't know how I missed it since I've been around here for some time, probably because I had slow dail up which made it hard to read all the post.

Isn't it funny how most think their mother's cooking/baking is perfect, then we start doing it and our kids think our cooking/baking is perfect, they just don't remember the mistakes, thank goodness. LOL

I have one word that sums up making perfect meals "Practice" and then sometimes things go wrong but people don't notice.
