A Foot of Snow and a Ton of Turkey

We woke up Thanksgiving morning to a winter wonderland. The snow continued to fall for most of the day, leaving us with 12" of perfect powder for sledding and skiing. The kids had a blast playing outside while I prepared the big meal.

My family isn't known for their love of exotic foods—at each holiday meal, my husband says grace and then regales us with his horror story about once having to eat a fancy cold oyster stuffing at someone's dinner party—so we stick with traditional fare for our Thanksgiving feast.

Just call me Martha.



Dinner last night: turkey noodle soup

What a spread you put on there, and like you, it need not be fancy for me. Give me the basics and I'm happy.

Oh, that look positively wonderful! The snow out of the back window is gorgeous too. We haven't had a good powdery snow for several years, sometimes it is just mush and then it gets dirty, ugh. Your snow is just gorgeous.
