Since my father is still in the skilled nursing unit at the Peaks in Flagstaff and their apartment has only a kitchenette, not conducive to real cooking, I'll probably make a family favorite casserole here in Mesa and take it up and reheat it in the microwave. I know they'll enjoy it because it's something they can't fix for themeselves any more since they don't have an oven. With my parents both having medical problems, just being able to be togehter for another holiday is enough for all of us. The meal isn't nearly as important as being together. December 2 is the 6th anniversary of my mother's stroke, and we celebrate each year, at Thanksgiving, the bonus time that we have been granted to spend with her.
