SkADaMo 8

I guess I have Thanksgiving on my mind. This is my favorite holiday and when I think of that delicious meal now, I think of the smell of turkey cooking on the barbeque. When I was little, my favorite memories included basting the turkey, helping my mom prepare the gravy, and getting rewarded with black olives which I would jam onto every finger.

  1. Fun idea! My grandfather would guard the black olives and pretend to stick a fork in our hands if we tried to sneak one.
