Thanksgiving Day 2007, will go down in Hooper History as a success. The only thing missing was our daughter and her family. Phoenix is a 'fer piece' from Huntsville, Alabama - too far for day trips. I did the cooking and everyone seemed happy with my menu. I used my blog friend's Baked Pineapple recipe for a new dish. It was the biggest hit on the table! Easy to prepare, quick to bake, and delicious! This recipe will become a standard. Many, many thanks to Cheryl.
The Hooper household is calm and quiet once again. Our guests have disbursed and moved on to other gatherings. Harry and I are going to enjoy a quiet evening together being thankful for our blessings and for this day.
Our nephew, Ricky, will be here Sunday afternoon and spend 2 or 3 days with us. We are so looking forward to seeing him. There isn't a person anywhere with a more positive attitude than his. I've never heard him say a bad word about anyone and he always see humor. I can't feel sad when he's around.
The next few weeks promise to be a whirlwind of activity. Bring it on - I'm ready!!
I sincerely pray that each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day.
