Had a delicious Thanksgiving meal . . . I think I outdid myself this year (did ALL the cooking this year - probably will do the same for Christmas.)
I ended up getting a small cheesecake sampler, which I was later informed by my brother that it wasn't big enough and we need to have a BIG one for Christmas.
I think I got Mom's dressing down pat now - just follow the directions on the back of the blue bag of Pepperidge Farm stuffing, but add an extra 1/4 cup of chicken broth in addition to 1 tbsp. sage and the celery and onions. Nice and moist . . . nomnomnom
And, yes, Abby had her own plate of food, along with what was left off both mine and Mom's plates!
She quickly went belly-up on the dining room floor a few minutes after I'd cleared the table . . . she didn't move for close to an hour.
All in all, it was a good day off. Just too short though.
