Dinner was astounding! I think Paula Dean could learn a few things from our framily matriarch!
Thank God for my framily matriarch! Without her I couldn't have afforded a vacation this year!
I am thankful for my framily matriarch: Mother to all Misfit Children, she who shrinks when she's angry, buys Christmas decorations in July, grills a mean London broil, turns vegetarians into carnivores, cooks for all us with love and gives each and every one of us a place of home and sense of family regardless of our situation.
