I'm still cwossing my paws fow all my fwiends  while enjoying this bootiful holiday
It's my favowite because it's about being togethew and nummie foodses and love, not about wunning awound and shopping and stwess of pwesents.
 I'm bwinging a tuwkey enuff fow all of you

and I'm showing you pictoowes of what Mommi and Daddi awe making to bwing along to ouw fwiends' house whewe we awe going  fow ouw thanksgiving meal

Daddi looooves making this  and watching the bewwies pop..the fwagwance dwives me wild

we also make a sweet potato/apple casewole  it's not all sweet ..no mawshmallows
(Mommi says hew Hungawian ancestows would woll ovew in theiw gwaves if she did mawshmallows on food...now woasting them on a campfiwe is diffewent and allowed, teehehehehehe..weiwd hungawians)

this is not the pie we made..we'we not making it till tomowwow, but it's going to look like this

all the west of the yummies will be pwovided by ouw fwiends Kawen ( auntie Kawen Seigew has witten a bootiful  book on the mawkets of NewYawk and has a vewy active FB site..pleez visit hew..she's fun and knowledgeable and unkel James isn't bad eithew, hehehehe)and James  and ouw long commoote to theiw house is going fwom the seventh floow to the thiwd, hehehe
I think I won't need special wain geew
Now fow the most impawtant of why I love Thanksgiving..it weminds me of how vewy lucky I am and have so much to be gwateful fow:
I'm so gwateful fow my fambly , fow many wondewful fwiendses , that we can still live in ouw apawtments and fow all the yummie tweats and foods I get and fow having a wawm fuwwevew home whewe I'm loved and that my Daddi is healthy and Mommi hasn't cwied fow a whole week and so many good things in my life.

I wish all of you the same!!!

smoochie kisses

Oh Asta, that was a wonderfully powerful post. We think the food looks yummy, and we know that your pie will look BETTER than the one in the picture. That kind is one of Dad's favorites, muzzer suggests you soak the pecans in bourbon, just for fun.

Oh man...now Asta...you're lookin' a tiny bit thin in that POKE HO HUMMAS costume...does living by all those models give you a bodily image complex?...make sure you have enuff stuffing to eat...Dog knows you have enuff turkey...

We watched that cranberry video over and over waiting for the whole thing to 'SPLODE...please remake, blowup, video and resend.

As for the sweet potatos...I think Schlag would top it pawfectly...Mumsie mumbled somethin' bout ketchup but I put that purple duct tape on her mouth...so much nicer in here...

Kisses and the Happiest of Thanksgivings to ya!


Pee ess...Stan's on his way...he has attached a tow hitch to his tail for the wagon...and he borrowed my broom so you can get here faster...please remind him the steering wheel is bakelite and to wash his dirty paws before touching...and also the gears are on the column...& do NOT let him burn out my clutch...

Martha said...

Hi Asta, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
The food looks wonderful and we so wish we were with you to share.
We don't have Thanksgiving in the UK but our mum visited Thanksgiving Square when she was in Belfast at the weekend.
She thought it was good to have a day to give thanks for all that life has given us - even though we know there are troubles along the way.
Enjoy - how great that you don't have the pressure of Xmas with gift buying - the best gift is being with family and friends for sure.
Much love

Tiger Lily said...

Your cranberries and the sweet potato casserole look good to my Mom. She makes her cranberry relish in the Vita Mix with oranges and no cooking but she likes it cooked too. And she mashes her sweet potatoes with orange marmalade and cinnamon. Sje saie she will have to try them with apples next time! Of course I do not eat either one.

Happy Thanksgiving!
