Welcome to the Inside-Out Café and Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.
A special welcome is extended you all who do not have place to gather on Thanksgiving Day. To those who may be single, divorced, widowed, students, travellers, homeless, or just alone for one reason or another.
On this day, in this wonderful café, I offer you a feast to remember all year long.
Let’s skip all those appetizers that fill you up and take away from the main course… our friend Tom the Turkey. Tom is filled to bursting with sausage stuffing that my momma used to make the night before each Thanksgiving.
In addition to Tom you’ll feast on tasty sausage stuffing, mashed potatoes and roast potatoes, sweet buttered corn, broccoli, and a huge salad. You can also choose from a variety of hot rolls with soft butter and set yourself down for a meal, conversation, and tons of laughter.
Once the meal is over, you’re not finished. In the next room are tables set up with games. Pick your favorite and join in. Scrabble, Monopoly, Dominos, Checkers, Poker, Gin Rummy and Hearts are the popular games but keep looking for one that you love. Stick around for a bit for the dessert wagon to roll on in.
On my dessert wagon are the basic Thanksgiving Day desserts… the ones my momma used to make. Pumpkin, Mincemeat, Apple and Lemon pies. I think I’ll also make some cherry and apple turnovers. Grab some coffee and stick around. The memories are in the making.
When the day is done, the cards are put away and the door is closed, I hope you leave with a full belly and a wide smile.
That’s my idea of Thanksgiving.
