Thanksgiving in the Shenandoah Valley ... in the kitchen cooking

Today is "prep" day in the kitchen ... chopping, slicing, pre-cooking, preparing for Thursday's Thanksgiving dinner. Since my sister is here from Texas and will not be back for Christmas, I am working on some of the candy I make each year ... a pan of dark chocolate-covered pecan toffee and a pan of fudge are cooling on the dining room table. One sister is baking apple pies, the other is making pumpkin, and SWAC Daughter is putting together apple turnovers from a yummy Williamsburg recipe she uses.

We have lots more to do and tomorrow will be filled with more preparation so that Thursday we can watch the Macy's Thanksgiving parade, football, play board games, and enjoy being together.

Family ... we are blessed.
