Wednesday Hodge Podge

Thankfully there are still questions for the Wednesday Hodgepodge-Vol 54

1. Let's start with something controversial...dressing or stuffing? What's it called at your house and what's included in your recipe...cornbread? oysters? sausage? chestnuts? Dressing, not to be confused with stuffing.....contains cornbread, leftover bread, broth, spices and chicken, and other good ingredients...

2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to? My Mama

3. When were you last inside an airport? December 2010...flew to Houston for a company Christmas party

4. What is one side dish that absolutely must be included in a turkey dinner? Just one? Green Beans, not the casserole which I abhor and a tradition for generations: Ambrosia...whoops that's two

5. What Christmas song do you dread hearing? When Wonder Boy was a wee one, he learned the 12 Days of Christmas...he wanted me to write it down so  he wouldn't get them out of order...of course he couldn't read so I drew him pictures...we got so tired of hearing that song that year.....I can't think of any I dread hearing, I even like to hear Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer a couple of times each season...

6. If someone approaches you and asks for money do you give it to them? Do you drop money 'in a tin cup' that belongs to a person on the street? Do you have a specific charity you support during the holiday season and/or year round? Sometimes I do give money this way but only if I feel like I am being led by the Holy Spirit to do so...many times I've felt that way and not responded and so felt guilty afterward...I usually do the Samaritan's Purse Shoe boxes but not this year...most years we make a contribution to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering

7. Share a favorite Thanksgiving memory. If you live in a country that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving share a favorite memory associated with food.  Last year, Daughter's family and Honey Bear and I went to the mountains for Thanksgiving....I think that was a special time....the others that stick out in my memory were the ones when I was a child...we always had huge crowds for Thanksgiving dinner or so it seemed...Mama was the oldest and all her siblings came with their families.

8. Insert your own random thought here...Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with your family....we always go around the table and tell something we're thankful for before the blessing...

Be sure and visit Joyce, our host each week.


  1. And a blessed Thanksgiving to you!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. ((HUGS))

  3. May your Thanksgiving dinner be a glorious occaison. I have never given to a beggar, they are also on the pension.

  4. Of course bread stuffing
    No one..... I'm adopted
    October 2011 Cayman Islands for granddaughters 13th birthday
    I don't dread anyone of them,but by the 25TH I'm tired of listening to all of them
    No to the street person...we give to Salvation Army
    Big Italian family dinners
    Have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving

  5. The Twelve Days of Christmas does get a bit monotonous, doesn't it?
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. This was a nice post, enjoy your thanksgiving.

  7. Wow! You flew out for a company party? Pretty neat!!

  8. We love Ambrosia but have to make it without the coconut. There are people in my family that HATE coconut. Dad was one of them....... Have a wonderful day....... We are headed over to my cousins house around 3 to visit with eat with her family..... Hope you have a blessed day!

  9. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  10. I miss having ambrosia at holiday time. I never carried on that tradition for the family because none of my children would eat it.

    I hope your Thanksgiving was a happy one. I enjoyed not having to make the turkey and dressing for a change!
