Get your Velveeta now

You're going to need it Thursday, or in the Paper-Dog family's case on Sunday- either way you will need it the day after you dive into all of the turkey and have your leftover turkey sandwiches.

For it is the day after Thanksgiving diner that I remember fondly from Memaw's with the Tautenhanners that we would have Velveeta cheese dip as children and I loved dunking my turkey sandwich in the dip.  It must have been extra special because we didn't usually have cheese dip at our house in the little city.  

But... get our family of four plus four boy cousins, a favorite aunt, a crazy uncle, a wonderful Memaw, a handy Pepaw, two bedrooms and one bathroom together on 13 acres and look out... cheese dip and card playing were sure to be on the agenda.

Even now over twenty years later I think about those years playing in that little house, being shooed into the pasture or just "outside" and am so nostalgic for a time when things like cheese dip could make a weekend magical.  Maybe it still can.

Lulu, I think I have an addition to the grocery list.

I second that! The memories are grand- makes me want to go back when things were simple! You better email Lulu so it gets on the list! See you Friday!

That's great. Holidays bring back a lot of memories for me, too. It's the main reason I never break away from a traditional menu. It's a way of bringing it all back and sharing some of those special memories with my children.

I have the velveeta - there'll be more time for it at Christmas - too bad the "crazy T's" won't be in town to share it -
