My Thanksgiving Day Menu

Thanksgiving Morning:
It is just after 2:00 A.M. – I am having my first cup of coffee and spending a minute to visit you before I start my day. Here is a quick photo I snapped when I got up, to share with you.

I was so excited about today that last night I could hardly fall to sleep. I woke moments before 12:00 A.M. not feeling sleepy at all. I told myself that the next time I woke up I would get up, knowing that by that time I was sure to be waking from a deep sleep, which I did. Nevertheless, promises are promises, and now that I am up, I am delighted to be starting my day.

  1. Hope, hope you and your family have a wonderful day. The menu sounds wonderful! Precious picture of 2 am.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Hello Hope! I trust you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Your menu looked yummy, especially the date nut bread. I just love dates! I made heavenly hash for my father as his birthday is always near or on Thanksgiving. It is made with dates, and it is soooo good with whipped cream on top.

    Your table was beautiful with all the pies decorating it.

    So good to visit with you, it's been awhile.

    Blessings, Debbie

  3. Sweet Hope, I'm deeply touched to know that my vintage cranberry sauce recipe was included amongst your immensely delicious sounding menu. You've got my tummy rumbling a plenty just thinking about this feast and how good I'm sure it was.

    Have a beautiful weekend, my dear friend,

    You are way too cute waking up just after 2 a.m. in your excitement. You must have been really tired by 4 p.m.! ;) I hope you have had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.
