Rainy and cold

Had a pretty good Thanksgiving Day. The boys had to go after their papers at one but had to wait till 2:20 in the cold. The folks came here for dinner which I had at four o’clock. We had chicken, etc. and plum pudding!

(I wonder what the "etc." was. We've never had plum pudding on Thanksgiving, but I do remember that growing up Grandma always brought potato rolls for Thanksgiving. We rotated between our house (Eleanor's), Marjorie's and Ned's each year, and always had turkey.)

  1. The 'etc' would be stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes. She didn't mention pumpkin pie. I don't remember her ever serving plum pudding, but she always had pumpkin pie & cherry pie (Ned's favorite dessert. In fact Ned would request cherry pie instead of cake for his birthday)

    so, never having had plum pudding, I wonder what it taste like?

    Grandma's rolls were delicious. I dont' think they were very easy to make either. At least when I tried they weren't easy - LOL!

  3. Plum pudding is much like a fruitcake but is steamed instead of baked. My mother would occasionally make one but preferred to make fruitcake, which this year I have done.
