Thanks Claire!  I had a great day today!  My oldest sister and I talked mom into letting us do most of the cooking.  My other sister, her boyfriend, and my niece came over for dinner.  My oldest sister cooked the turkey, cornbread stuffing, and gravy. Mom made her stuffing and sweet potatoes. I made the mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, rolls, and corn. Last night mom made the noodles while I made an orange-cranberry compote. Between the three of us we made a great meal. Of course, we had pie for dessert. Then we sat around and watched football. All in all it was a great day!! As always, I ate too much, but I managed not to stuff myself as much as I usually do.  Oh, and we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, of course.  Happy Thanksgiving fellow Americans!  I hope you all had a great day too.

I would now like to share with you the stort of Aunt Matilda.  It's a classic Thanksgiving story in our family. 

My maternal grandmother wanted Thanksgiving weekend off so they could go to her sister's for Thanksgiving, but her boss wouldn't let her. So Grandma told her boss that her aunt Matilda died and she needed to go to her funeral. She didn't really have an aunt Matilda, she made it up to get off work. Well, she didn't want to be lying, so that year they named the turkey Aunt Matilda. Now we refer to the Thanksgiving turkey as Aunt Matilda.

Love your story about Aunt Matilda, how funny!

So, what is green bean casserole? What is in it besides green beans?

Your meal sounds so yummy and I hope that you enjoyed your day.

BAKE at 350°F for 30 min. or until hot.

STIR. Top with remaining 2/3 cup onions. Bake 5 min. until onions are golden.

When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.
