    Loved this, Lanita. So many of your memories are also my memories. Hog killing is one of my Thanksgiving memories. I remember the frying of freshly-made pork sausage. Delicious! It’s hard to decide which is my favorite between sweet potato casserole and homemade cornbread dressing. Without a recipe, over the years of trial, and no error, I think I mastered my grandmother Jernigan’s dressing. The secret to hers was to add bacon drippings when making the cornbread. This year I will be going to my niece’s house and will be taking Mama’s sweet potato casserole with marshmallows. I like the topping with nuts, but my niece and the rest of the family don’t want to change anything. So I will stick with the marshmallows again. (No pun intended.)
    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and may God bless you and all of your family.
