This is one of my treasures: a favorite recipe written out for me in my grandmother's own handwriting.
I love the way she made the recipe her own and noted her changes.
I love every stain on the paper, because it shows how well-loved this recipe has been by my family all these years.
I love how my youngest son lists this recipe as his very favorite and made sure I was making this year, even though I am not cooking a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
And this year, the first Thanksgiving Grandma Dykes is not with us, I especially love the many ways she injected sweetness into my life.
Notice I've made her recipe my own as well: balls instead of logs.
Now. In honor of FAMILY STORIES MONTH, I offer you the following prompt:
Share a story about a memorable family meal.
Tell your story!
