Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to wish all my blog readers a very Happy Thanksgiving. We will spend our time with family and friends this year. I just love Thanksgiving and all that comes with this holiday. No pressure of gift giving. Just enjoying each other.

So many of the dishes I cooked this year have special meaning as they were my Mamon's. Rice Dressing and a very tart Lemon Meringue Pie. It is amazing how a taste or a smell can transport us back.

I am trying a new recipe using our Louisiana Satsumas from the backyard. It is a candied yam recipe from one of my ancient treasured cajun cookbooks. (From Momma to Me). It sounded so good, so I'm giving it a shot. Normally I wouldn't try out a new recipe for a holiday, but her recipes are always delicious!

Here is a peek at my table all set for company.

The yams and satsumas were barely short of divine! I'm so happy you decided to try it out. It was my favorite part of the meal...except, of course, 7 hours of the best company imaginable. Thank you my friend!
