Dinner's Ready at Thanksgiving! sampler

Turkey Day is almost here! Each year I remember exactly how I cooked my first turkey. I left the gross stuff that's wrapped in the package in it's hollowness and didn't remove it. Boy, did I learn how to cook a turkey then! By experience!

Well, beyond that, we have celebrated in many various ways. My favorite was when I could cook and my kids were home. That just seemed natural to me. But life changes or change takes life and we try to do what we can with what we have. The meaning of Thanksgiving is still the same.

I designed a small that would be a lovely addition to your smalls basket on Thanksgiving or on the dinner table if you have a large gathering. You know on Turkey Day, seconds is always a given. But will you still have your spot at the table or couch, or wherever you find a spot to sit and gobble?

Enjoy this little prim small and pass it around when going for seconds on Turkey Day or any day for a large gathering!
