I know, it isn’t Christmas yet, but in my opinion, Thanksgiving is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s like Christmas without the stress. Okay, I must confess – in my house I have nothing to do with cooking the meal. When it comes to preparing food, my husband has a gift, and he loves to cook for people. I have no problem with that since my best meals have two ingredients: a box and water. (although I do love to bake)
Anyhow, back to why Thanksgiving is stress free for me. I sleep in, sample my favorite dishes throughout the day as they are being made and relax, which means head out to my she shed and write. My favorite part of the meal is the dressing or as some would say the stuffing. I grew up on cornbread stuffing. My mom made the best. My husband adds extra herbs and sausage which only makes it better.
This Thanksgiving I will be adding words and scenes to my newest project set in the wild west. I’m excited about the strong, independent, and somewhat eccentric heroine in this story. The hero is a pretty good guy too.
Just to make it clear I do help on Thanksgiving Day. I get to wash the dishes, and as you know there are a lot of dishes to wash during each stage of the process. Here is another confession: I love to wash dishes by hand. Putting the clean ones away is not so much fun but that is where my twin daughters come in handy.
How about you? What is your favorite holiday and why? And tell me, is it dressing or stuffing?
