|Dianne Cage: Thanksgiving and cornbread dressing|
Let's all sing .."Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go, the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh .." I can still see Mama loading us all in her little car and flying through Forsythe Park, real fast, singing that song and heading to Mother Baker's, on Clayton Street, in West Monroe for Thanksgiving Dinner. There were so many children to play with in her neighborhood. Sometimes I wonder what happened to some of them. I know Jimmy Crawford died but there was Jimmy Bamberg and his sister, the McCormick children, the Hoffmanns. I know where Frank is and do you remember his mother's Fruit Punch? It was so good. Growing up we never had a party or celebration without Mrs. Hoffmann's punch.
THE HOLIDAYS. THANKSGIVING
Don't we just love fall and anticipating all the fun we are going to have with Thanksgiving peeping around the corner? When it comes to planning for this day, stick to family traditions and perpetuate those family traditions for the younger generations.
One such tradition in our household is the menu. For Thanksgiving, we start with MILK PUNCH to welcome our guests. I love to have a first course — maybe a good soup or fancy salad and have all my guests seated at their place.
