Thanksgiving Hodgepodge

1. Let's start with something controversial...dressing or stuffing? What's it called at your house and what's included in your recipe...cornbread? oysters? sausage? chestnuts?

Cornbread dressing. Not stuffed in anything but our mouths. And I had never even heard of putting oysters or sausage or chestnuts or any other weird stuff like that in it until I was adult. You Yankees just keep that stuff up north. In the South we like our cornbread dressing.

2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

A non-existent picture of perfection.

3. When were you last inside an airport?

About ten days ago, when I went to pick someone up.

4. What is one side dish that absolutely must be included in a turkey dinner?

Cornbread dressing. I get it once a year and I savor every bite.

5. What Christmas song do you dread hearing?

I can't think of one right now, but I know there is one. I really hate flippant sacrilegious songs about Christ's birth.

6. If someone approaches you and asks for money do you give it to them? Do you drop money 'in a tin cup' that belongs to a person on the street? Do you have a specific charity you support during the holiday season and/or year round?

No on the spur-of-the-moment handouts. I've never been one for supporting "charities." We do give to ministries, however, throughout the year and at Christmas.

7. Share a favorite Thanksgiving memory. If you live in a country that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving share a favorite memory associated with food.

Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on TV as a child, eating turkey, and the annual Texas vs. Texas A&M game on TV.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

As I count my blessings this year, I'm thankful for the friends I've made through blogging. Thanks for joining me in the journey!

And I'm thankful for you, dear Linda. ;-)

I don't mind some of the old classics that aren't about Christ's birth (White Christmas, etc.), but I prefer songs about the real meaning of Christmas ... I listen to a Christian music radio station year-round, but I listen especially during Christmas because most of their songs are about the birth of our Savior.

I like your Hodge Podge! Hmmm...I am thinking of a very funny Thanksgiving specific memory now that you prompted it - and might have to blog about it! Happy Thanksgiving! Dawn @ Beneath The Surface: Breath of Faith.
