passing the torch

Melissa's lists

For as long as I can remember we have had Thanksgiving dinner at our house with all of our family plus sister Kay and her family. This year we are working out of town and will arrive home just in time for the good stuff (the eating part).

So I am passing the torch - this year Melissa is in charge of the cooking. She went through my recipe collection and after many questions, she came up with the official menu. She now has lists scattered all over - shopping list, lists of recipes, lists of dishes to make on Wednesday, dishes to make on Thursday, even an oven time list. Carrie called to tell her she was making a broccoli casserole, but Melissa told her to get in line for the oven(s), that she would check her oven time chart and pencil her in.

Thanks for everyone who are pitching in! Carrie and Daniel are cleaning, Melissa is cooking which means Sarah and Racheal and Keith are also cooking. I can't wait to be there just as a guest!

Ought to be interesting, huh? Enjoy sitting back and simply eating and being there.

Good for you for stepping aside and allowing her to be the chef.
