Goodbyes are said and hugs are passed around with big, sloppy cheek kisses. It had been another successful Thanksgiving dinner, and there are already plans for who will host next year’s. After everyone is gone the rest of the family either takes a nap or sits on the couch. Making enough food for 30 people is hard work and everyone is exhausted. The house is a mess and will have to be cleaned before bedtime, but no one complains they are all too proud of pulling this off perfectly.
It was delicious, and I’ll never forget the laughs we had that night. But the next morning it was back off to Virginia. Catch ya on the flip side
"Well, all we can do is hope for the best until we know how this all happened," I told Christina. Owen walked over and thanked us for helping everyone get out safety and most importantly, him out. We all went back to my house and ate dinner and talked about what had happened. We all watched the news and saw each other on T.V and got all happy cause we had helped A LOT of people in those six hours.
Every Christmas Eve my family reunites with a platter of food, all the children wear the pajamas and we all bake Christmas cookies and watch a Christmas, usually animated since the toddlers are watching. An hour before midnight, we organize the journey that Maria and Jose experienced
I woke up with butterflies in my stomach and could barely choke down any breakfast. The 4-H Demonstrations Contest was always a huge part of my summer. First I would begin brainstorming ideas until I found one I liked, and then my mom and I would work and edit my speech until it was perfect. That year my topic was Buying Clothes the S.M.A.R.T. Way.
The next morning as we were all awake and eating breakfast, my mom and dad said that we have to clean up little cardboard pieces off the ground. Finally, after we picked up enough pieces of cardboard to please my mom we went inside to get dressed. Soon it was time for my cousins to go.
Dishes were always a big issue in my house. In the beginning, I would keep everything clean as a perfect Martha Stewart kitchen. But one day I started working outside the house and I had a new baby. I woke up early in the morning, breastfed my baby, got dressed and faced one hour commute to my work place.
Being home alone and not being very skilled in the kitchen, I decided that mac and cheese would be a great choice. Low on sleep and anxious about the start of the new school year as well as the new field hockey season, I left my meal in the microwave without the important ingredient of water and went upstairs to change for practice. As I was changing, all of a sudden I got a whiff of
How to do Thanksgiving effectively Entertaining for Thanksgiving can be very rewarding, and very exhausting. Over the years I have found that planning and preparing for the big day is essential. I love to cook. I enjoy preparing a wonderful Thanksgiving meal for my loved ones.
We drove around for a while just looking at the woods. Once we got back to the house, it was almost dark. I pulled the garage door open and let my grandfather put it back in the garage. When we walked inside I felt so proud of myself, mostly just proud in general. My grandmother had dinner ready by the time we walked in, and she asked how it all went.
The day was spent playing basketball, catching up with my family members, and of course watching football. As always we said grace, and went around the table to talk about what we were most thankful for. It wouldn 't be a Heino thanksgiving without a massive turkey, loads of stuffing, and an unhealthy amount of mashed potatoes, and biscuits. We ended the day by spending an hour deciding what movie we would watch, only to watch for half an
There were bacon, sausage, biscuits, pancakes and orange juice. We sat at the kitchen table, she asked me “Destiny is you ready to better your life?” I looked at her, smiled and I said, yes mam. I told her what my goals were for Job Corps, for me personally, and what I wanted to be in life. Time was ticking, she was on the schedule, she asked me to get dressed, put on some pretty clothes and do my hair.
I woke up at six o’clock in the morning and was too excited to go back to sleep. I really tried to go back to sleep, but my heart rate was too high. I got really bored just lying in my bed, so I decided to go wake up my dad. I walked to my mom and dad’s room and gave my dad a light touch on the back. His response was,” Go Back to bed
This fast food restaurant is always busy and the vibe is nothing but positive, with kids playing, families eating and plenty of the retired community enjoying a bite amid the pseudo-chaos (the children, not the employees).My respect to the manager for putting together such a fun, clean and safe environment with good food, reasonable value and good nutrition options. Therefore, next time you drive past a Chick-fil-a don’t hesitate to go in and enjoy a great
I right away open my eyes, and seeing my mom tapping me on my arm saying “it’s time for breakfast.” This was a saturday morning up north at my great-grandparents cabin. I hope you like my story! I got out of bed right away and ran down the stairs as fast as I can, smelling the most delicious, buttery, hot pancakes on the stove. As I got to the kitchen I see the table already set, and pancakes staring right at me.
