Thanksgiving Day, 2007

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.

I'm thrilled that you loved my recipe. Like you said, easy and delicious. And now, you'll always remember me!

I've been sitting for an hour or so. Finally. Have a great night.
