Irene (2014)

I remember when you set the table-
Looking good, as best as one was able.
.
I remember you standing in the kitchen preparing the turkey-
It was huge and you made it look as simple as it could be.
.
I remember you making giblet gravy-
To go with the dressing that was delicious and fluffy.
.
I remember your complete acceptance, and making 3 generations
feel like they were number one-
Like an angel on earth, to properly get that job done.
.
I remember the whole house smelling like a favorite bakery-
And decorated by black olives and of course cranberry.
.
I remember you crying whenever all sat down to eat-
Each and every family member, in their special seat.
.
I remember you saying that you were crying because of
Thanksgiving past-
For all of the family members, that were gone, and of
the memories that you had amassed.
.
For you too had the same memories that I am sharing today-
For when the holidays come around, we all remember the
special ones who are in Heaven including you, that have gone away.
.
It is now my time look back and remember, and create
memories too-
Thank you for sharing a piece of my life, for thinking of you,
always helps me to manage my way through.
.
One last thing I remember all of those dishes that had to be
washed and put away-
I don’t think that will ever change, on any given Thanksgiving Day.

.

I remember when you set the table-
Looking good, as best as one was able.

No Betty Crocker (2014)

I’ll admit that I’ve never been a Betty Crocker. In the years, that I felt a need to cook,
I cooked a lot of Hamburger Helper. How hard could that be? Brown the meat, and
then cook some other prepared ingredients with it.
.
Needless to say, I don’t like the stuff anymore. I’ll only eat it every once in a while.
Thank goodness the husband does a lot of the cooking now. Sandwiches can get
old after a while too.
.
I wished that I had paid more attention when a certain one of my grandmothers
was cooking. For Thanksgiving we’d be having some delicious oyster and

cornbread dressing, with giblet gravy.
.
I did learn one thing though, you have to cook a piece of meat, slowly and

for a long time. When I was younger, I’d cook a roast for several hours,

and basically it was so rubbery, that you could bounce it off the wall.
.
I just assumed that I was not a good cook, and that my grandmother

bought expensive meat. Now I know that I can buy a cheap piece of meat,

if there is such a thing, and by properly cooking it, the stuff will melt in your

mouth. Including that turkey for Thanksgiving.

 

To take a seat-
To enjoy every morsel of a cheaper meat.
