Thanksgiving was always a favorite holiday for my family, like most. I had the honor of decorating and setting the table from around the age of eight. Of course, I would help out in the kitchen a little bit, but not as much as some kids since I had the fortune of having my "Granny" live with us. So, between she and my Mom - we had two of the best cooks ever! I loved setting the table with my Mom's china, silver, beautiful serving pieces, the crystal and of course the linens! I still have her porcelain, a timeless Haviland pattern that I mix and match since it is white with a beautiful gold trim. However, the MOST precious holiday treat for me is seeing this old battered recipe - written in my Mom's own handwriting, which I have used year after year. You can see all of the spills and use this has gotten over the years, so it is good that we have this scanning technology to help preserve it for the next generation. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
