~Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear.
Memphis Women and Chicken (She’s got biscuits in the oven—cornbread in the pan…)
A grace could be very simply giving thanks for the hands that made the meal, for the workers in the stores, on the trucks, in the gardens. on the farms and ranches, and the vineyards. Even a toast to all who made it possible would work. Mark the moment.
All Good Gifts (Godspell We plough the fields and scatter the good seed on the land….
America by Simon and Garfunkel We’ve all come——-to look for America.
Thursday Dessert/ After Dinner
Pie! Me-oh My; I love Pie (sung by Andie McDowell in “Michael” after Michael says he invented pie–
“Just kidding! … Sing, Dorothy. Now.”) This tune is not on the soundtrack for some inexplicable reason.
Pie, pie, me oh my,

Apple and pumpkin and mince and black bottom,

Pie, me oh my, I love piiiiieeeeeee
Sleigh Ride (Ella Fitzgerald) Ok-it bridges the seasons.”…when they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie.”
Lean on Me (Michael Bolton version)
