A Thanksgiving Dinner
by Maude M. Grant
Take a turkey, stuff it fat,
Some of this and some of that.
Get some turnips, peel them well.
Cook a big squash in its shell.
Now potatoes, big and white,
Mash till they are soft and light.
Cranberries, so tart and sweet,
With the turkey we must eat.
Pickles-yes-and-then, oh my!
For a dessert a pumpkin pie,
Golden brown and spicy sweet.
What a fine Thanksgiving treat!
On our Thanksgiving table: Mashed Potatoes, Turkey, Gravy, Corn on the cob, Peas, Sweet Potatoes, Homemade Rolls, Cranberry and Pear Chutney, Homemade Stuffing, Sweet Potato Casserole (my favorite!!!), and Cookie Fruit Salad! We were stuffed! (Then 5 types of pie for dessert! Oh baby, oh baby!)
I have to laugh because the chutney I made had a kick to it, not spicy hot, but spicy . . . my dad LOVES cranberry sauce and went to town with it (before he tasted it), he is NOT a spicy guy by any means! It was so sweet that he knew that I made it so he loaded up on it! My husband got quite the kick out of it! Thanks Vati!
