house (my dad doesn't like poultry in large chunks...he's fine with
baked chicken pieces, but no whole roasted birds). Mom usually has a
standing rib roast. I'm doing an eye of round.
I haven't had turkey for thanksgiving since we had T'giving dinner
with the minister (three houses, and two churches ago).

Somehow, I always manage to start something complicated like bread making
when the kids are sure to interrupt (complicated, as opposed to mac and
cheese for dinner; as in time consuming). 8 years, and I still haven't
often creating Predslava when she cooks from scratch.
I hope everyone has waddled off after a nice, big, dinner, and is sitting in
happy stupor about now. Happy Thanksgiving!
- I never lived in Lincoln, although my sister had a house there for a long
while. My brother now lives in Papillion with his family, but he's the only
one left in the Midwest. I agree about Madison, since it was where a lot of
my Dad's family lived we were there fairly often. And it's the county seat,
only a short drive from Norfolk.
Nice to know I'm not the only expatriated Nebraskan around.
