Dubois Thanksgiving Wishes

Thanksgiving is celebrated in a big way at the Dubois house. Hubby and I cook a traditional turkey dinner together for our family and friends with all the trimmings, including a huge plate of ravioli like my grandmother used to make. We bake our own pumpkin and blueberry pies. (Pumpkin pictured below, fresh from the Dubois oven.) Dress is casual, watching football is allowed, and snoozing on the sofa after the meal is as much a tradition as the bird.

Ours is a multi-cultural, multi-racial group. We are Caucasian, African American, and Asian. Some of us were born in our small Pennsylvania town. Others come from the mid-west or nearby cities. Our ages range from young to very old. We are the true melting pot of America. On Thanksgiving Day, we celebrate the unwavering love we have for our country and one another.

I wish you all a peaceful, bountiful Thanksgiving.

Sounds great. My family is diminished in size this year so daughter, grandson and I are having a chicken-tortilla casserola which is already made and waiting. It just gets better if it sits a couple of days. First year we've done this and I'm looking forward to a relaxed and happy day.

Hi All!

I'm passing a cyber plate of home baked pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream for each of you. ")
Guaranteed it will be the lowest calorie dessert you've ever eaten!

Thanks so much for your comments.

Adele, Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I love that you serve ravioli. Being from a large Italian family, we always had some sort of pasta with our traditional Thanksgiving food.

Carolyn--I'll always cherish my Italian grandmother's tradition of including pasta with our American holiday meals. She's gone now, but I still think of her often.

Jean--Your chicken tortilla casserole sounds yummy!

Have a great holiday!

I never thought of taking a picture of my pies when they are done! What a great idea! Sometimes just looking at the food makes you able to taste it again! And like you said, in a low-fat kind of way!

Hope you get the bigger part of the wishbone and the relatives all behave. Have a fun and relaxing day.
