Friday nite, the 23th was Gumbo night, her sisters Patricia and Linda mustva' thought they were cooking for the whole town with all those large pots. Shrimps and crabs were stacked way high. You can see the gumbo on our 1st blog.
Saturday 24th, all the youngun's got their gifts, and games were played, especially bingo. Prizes were given for everything! No fireworks or fire this year because it rained and still raining. We need it though! Casseroles, and pasta-shrimp, etc., salad, breads, desserts- cakes, potato pies, peach cobblers, banana puddings, chocolate pies, pecan pies and the likes served with coffee.
Sunday was the big meal. Turkey, smoked and fried, ham, some more shrimp, crabs, etc. cornbread dressing, greens of all sorts, mac-n-cheese, potato salad, candied potatoes, congealed salads, and I can't remember what else. I'm dizzy thinking about it-them sisters sure like to cook! Heeeeeheeeee!
