Fran,

I so enjoyed your story, what a gem you are!

I absolutely love to cook, and I go all out for holidays. This year Grandma & Grandpa drove here from MI to spend Thanksgiving with the four of us so I tried to make it extra special. She knows I am a from scratch girl, in most cases, and was asking me how I plan to prepare the stuffing. I reached into the cabinet and pulled out my Stove Top and laughed. My guys don't care for stuffing so I usually only make it for me anyway. BTW It was her favorite part of the meal. I always bake a fresh turkey, make very special mashed potatoes and fancy veggies so I really don't feel bad about the Stove Top.

What I do feel bad about is that Grandma is so crabby these days, from the moment she stepped out of the car she was saying she should have stayed home. She couldn't wait to get out of here. I hope I never get like that. Grandpa is a pure joy to be around he made it all worth it. Well him and the smiles of my family who love to eat like this. It's funny how important food is to a teen. LOL

Here's Fran's Thanksgiving post for anyone who wanted to read it, as recommended. It is hilarious!

I agree with some of the other posters, I would NEVER have gone to all that trouble for people so mean. But I obviously don't have the sense of humor, spunk and talent that Fran does.

I can't wait to hear about progress on the book! Keep us updated regularly, those of you who are working on it.

This is the first time I have read this story - I have no idea how I missed it up until now...and all I can say is that I am sitting at work in my office on the other side of the planet - it is over 100 degrees outside today and the thought of turkey and mashed potato could not be further from my mind.....but I have tears welling! And we don't even celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia!

That was hysterical Fran. You go get em girl! You truely are one amazing lady!
