“My Mama worked as a nurse. On her Thanksgivings off, she spent the day cooking a feast. Our dinner menu never varied. I recall home-canned green beans, mashed taters, sweet taters, dressing, turkey, and cranberry relish. Her parents lived with us from the time I was six until their deaths, but I don’t recall other family members joining us that day. Aunt Katy, who was no kin, but a retired nurse in our town always ate with us. My daughter and I still make Mama’s cranberry relish recipe every year. Our meal would be incomplete without it even though it never tastes as good as Mama’s did.”
