MY TOP 10: Pat Wentz

Pat Wentz has two things to look forward to this week: Thanksgiving followed on Friday by her 55th wedding anniversary. She and husband, Paul Wentz, will have seven family members and friends over for Thanksgiving dinner at their home in Penn Valley. We asked Wentz to name her Top 10 favorite things about Thanksgiving.

1. The turkey. I always fix a big one.

2. Just (having) family together.

3. I get to see my grandson. That’s really important. I haven’t seen him in three months.

4. Homemade cranberry sauce. I always do that for my boys. It’s strained. It doesn’t have the skins in it.

5. Leftovers.

6. We’ll have good friends over.

7. Pies. Apple pies and pumpkin pies. Our granddaughter and two great grandchildren are coming by for desert.

8. Talking on the phone with relatives.

9. Getting ready for Christmas after Thanksgiving.

10. Just being together with family is the most important part.
