To Grandmother’s Brother’s house we go..
Usually we make the four hour trek north to Chico for the holidays, but since my mother is currently waiting for her new home to be built, she is down here in San Jose staying at my brother’s. My mom did most of the cooking; ham, green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, rolls, etc. I made a contribution to the feast by cooking the turkey at my place and then bringing it over. She did a great job considering it wasn’t her kitchen, although a few grumblings could be heard throughout the day. “I just can’t find the big spoon, he never has enough spoons..”
