Hi Sharran
I always enjoy your stories but the Thanksgiving tale was one of the best! I reckon I might have turned into a vegetarian if I had had a pet turkey that had ended up on family dinner table! I'm better off growing veggies - they don't make a fuss at harvest time.
Thanksgiving Day celebrations were never a part of our family until we moved to this continent. The idea behind it is really lovely and will hopefully remind generations of families of how fortunate they are to be enjoying food in abundance.

Thanks for sharing your stories with us,

I must have missed this one the first time around, or maybe it's because I DO NOT TURN ON THE COMPUTER on holidays (if I can help it), but it is a lovely story. My mother had a rule for us that we had to eat one bite of everything served. At least I did. I think by the time my baby brothers came along she was so relieved to have them eat anything that the rules relaxed considerably. But I learned to eat a great many interesting things from my mother. I did become a vegetarian at one point but that was more sociological and political and not enjoying the taste of meat so much.

Carrie, thank you!

I never ever got really used to the taste of meat. I eat fish, and occasionally I've eaten chicken. The fish I like and continue to eat it, but not so much the chicken. That doesn't mean I don't fix it for others, it just means I rarely if ever eat it.

I hope you are ready for the Christmas holidays, and I hope the holiday season is good to you.
Thanks again.

I've said it before: if there's a Sharran story, I always read it!
Both my children, and their families, are vegetarian. My 83 year-old dad no longer wishes to eat meat, either. Yet, my mother still cannot understand that most of the family is NOT eating meat. (Still a 15# turkey and no one taking home leftovers...)
I plan to share this with her so she might have a glimpse of an alternative view.
Again, Sharran, keep this stuff coming and definitely post when the book is reality!
