Basically I'm making to-do lists and shopping lists this weekend for the upcoming Thanksgiving feast. We're staying in Michigan. Polly is heading to Kansas City to see one son and his family. Her other sons??? Well, they will be here , in Baltimore watching their life long friends coach against each other on THE football game on Thanksgiving day.
Yes, Polly and her family have known all the Harbaughs since the boys all played Pop Warner football together. I went every Sunday afternoon to watch too. I also had the job as baby-sitter for the 2 Harbaugh and 3 Minick boys every now and then. I still have the scars to prove it. Oh, the stories I could tell.
They were all good kids, very good kids, but with over-active metabolisms and a bit of a competitive streak. All five of them were within 2 years of each other. Good luck to both John and Jim. We will all go crazy, hoping somehow that both teams can win.
I am in charge of pumpkin pie and possibly something else for the meal. (p.s. I have made this Sweet Potato cake with White Chocolate frosting before and it is a HIT. The poor ratings are from people who had problems with the frosting. Remember to have the melted white chocolate room temperature or cooler before folding in the whipped cream.)
What is your favorite dish to make for Thanksgiving? Just comment here (and give us all ideas!) and one person will win a Fat Eighth Bundle of Prairie Paisley II. Comment before midnight Monday, November 21st.
