I’m popping in a little early with my recipe today as my cousins and our grandsons will be arriving shortly. My cousins are going to help my husband get us a roof on. Not a one with roofing experience but my cousin has launched folks up into space so she is bound to figure this out. I whipped up this dump cake a little while ago to satisfy our grandsons sweet tooth. They love pineapple and cherries so I figure they will really like this cake. Don’t you just love recipes that are simple and delicious? Just a side note, we have filed a police report on the guy that left us hanging with roof repairs, it’s a wait and see game now.
I hadn’t planned on a big Thanksgiving this year, after all we were supposed to be camping but our plans changed. I have several dishes frozen, but they will not be near enough to feed this crowd so I am excited about cooking a big meal, while they hammer away on the roof. I have so much to be thankful for this year and I feel so Blessed to be able to share another holiday with my family and y’all, you’re like family to me too. My Grandmothers always looked forward to the holidays when the whole family would gather and there wouldn’t be enough room for everyone to sit. I come from really large families and we outgrew living rooms early on. Family gathered where they could slip in and set a spell, seemed like the women all lingered in the kitchen area while the menfolk took over the living room and porches. Us kids would be shewed to bedrooms to play and not be underfoot. Neither of my Grandmothers had a table big enough for everyone to gather around, so TV trays would be set up all over for those that didn’t get a seat at the table, us kids on the floor as always. For those of you that will be traveling to be with your family and friends, stay safe and may God be with you.
