1: A Tribute to Gammy 60 Years of Family, Food, & FUN!
4: Pank Panks | Even the earliest days of Thompson family often started with pancakes; that is if you could understand what was being requested. Payson has always known what he wants, even as a toddler, and one morning, he wanted pank panks. Gammy had NO idea what he was saying (which is quite amazing considering she is the queen of silly talk), asking him multiple times to repeat himself, until the TV repair man in the other room finally blurted out, "Pancakes. He wants pancakes!" Now, we all serve pank panks the "Thompson way" - fruit IN the pancake.
8: Mimosas | I don't think anyone in our house can drink a mimosa without thinking of 2 things - Christmas and DaneDane. Year after year, she'd trek to our house on Christmas morning to drink a mimosa and open gifts. Certainly Dana would say a vivid memory of the Thompson household is not being able to get through a meal without the conversation going below the waist! | (Recipe)
9: Rib Roast | Christmas dinner at the Thompson house IS rib roast. And apparently the best place to get them is Dallas, Texas because they run, ohhhh, about $200! One is so speechless at the checkout that she can't get the words out, "Oh no thank you. I thought it was a different price,' so she takes it home to her sour cream food poisoned family. The fam can barely keep down a glass of water, but certainly can't let such a fine piece of meat go to waste. | (Recipe)
10: Richaqrdson Women Gravy | Whether its the Thanksgiving Turkey, the Christmas Standing Rib Roast, or a weekday roasted chicken, the Richardson women make gravy like no other. Don't ask them what they put in it (because you might not eat it), but it's amazing! Images of the 3 Sisstie Uglers standing around the stove in their matching Thanksgiving dresses, all talking at the same time, is engrained in our memories and brings smiles to not only our faces, but taste buds as well!
11: Recipe | I have a cute pic from T-giving this year to upload of the 3 sisties all talking, making gravy - HILARIOUS!
12: Pearl Onions | First, bribe Pays with hot cocoa and equip him with a pair of swimming goggles. Keep the cocoa coming as he peels any assortment of colored pearl onions. Boil the onions until tender, drain (but save the water because Gammy will use it!) and add butter, cream, salt and pepper to your desired yumminess!
