black-woman-cooking www.bossip.comGreetings! It’s Thanksgiving: A day of family; a day of food and cooking; a day of giving thanks and being thankful!

Now, how long have you been up cooking? How many times have you called your Mother or a wise cook to obtain preparation instructions for dishes? My Momma’s mouthwatering turkeys were always finger licking good!

Veteran cooks like my Mother can taste the sweetest cake and discern that a half teaspoon of salt is missing! Incredible, isn’t it! I just love my almost 90 year old Mother’s instructions for cooking turkeys. “The key is seasoning. You have to wash and dress her thoroughly. Put a good bit of salt and pepper on her and rub in the seasonings with your hand real good!” Momma referred to the turkey using a feminine descriptor.

See, no matter what, we are always the stars and the center of attention! We are queens not only on Thanksgiving Day, but every day of the year! Now, “that’s what I am talking about!” Bon Appetit!

By Vernalee - turkey dinner

Grocery stores are full of shoppers buying turkeys and items for the prized Thanksgiving dinner. Many of my friends and family members have started preparing side dishes and desserts. Items that can be frozen and advanced prepared are underway.

As we approach Thanksgiving Day, we have to keep in mind that it is more than the turkey and dressing, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, candied yams, greens and countless desserts. Yum! Yes, the significance of the day is greater than the meal and the family sitting around the dinner table. It is a time to be thankful; a time to count your blessings; a time of reflections. I have so much for which to be thankful; too numerous to count!

Therefore, I ask, “What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday?”
