It is nearing time for Thanksgiving, October 12 in Canada and November 26 in the U.S. so Sally Jo has decided to start some cooking early. She has found her perfect outfit and just couldn't wait to try it out.Her dress of a Flint Corn print and a subtle giraffe print is perfect for the holidays.
Take a turkey, stuff it fat,
Some of this and some of that.
Get some turnips, peel them well.
Cook a big squash in its shell.
Now potatoes, big and white,
Mash till they are soft and light.
Cranberries, so tart and sweet,
With the turkey we must eat.
Pickles-yes-and then, oh my!
For a dessert a pumpkin pie,
Golden brown and spicy sweet.
What a fine Thanksgiving treat!

Add a basketweave apron and Sally Jo is ready to prepare a Thanksgiving feast
Oh of course, a neat little scarf to hold her hair back while cooking - it matches the skirt on her dress
So it is off to the garden to gather some fresh vegetables, and then to the market.
She'll use the potholders that match her outfit - just the thing for hot pans
Baking is a good way to start - hmmm, pumpkin bars sound good, don't they?
Here is the recipe that Sally Jo prefers - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/229508/pumpkin-bars-with-cream-cheese-frosting/
And they can be served with or without the frosting. A dollop of whipped cream might be good too.
So many things to cook - potatoes to boil for mashing, Brussells Sprouts, it all smells so good
Homemade cranberry sauce, with cranberries picked fresh from Sally Jo's bushes
Muffins would be good too, corn muffins? Or shall we have blueberry muffins?
It is a good thing she has potholders.And now time to set the table - the food is ready -
Dinner is servedAnd then, time to clean up and wash the dishes
And now Sally Jo sits down and enjoys a good book and a cup of tea - the end
