IT'S A SQUIRREL! NOT A TURKEY!
Ok, so Thanksgiving was nice. I did a fair amount of cooking but I didn’t make the turkey. Well, not until Sunday when I made a turkey. But I didn’t make the Thanksgiving turkey. What did I make (because I know you care)?
Pecan Pie (with fresh whipped cream)
Soft dinner rolls
Sweet potato casserole
Cucumber and sweet onion salad
Hot spinach and artichoke dip
And then on Sunday I made a turkey so we could have turkey sammiches. I also made stuffing and gravy and sweet potato muffins since I had some sweet potato left over and I needed to make breakfasts for week anyway. Sadly the sudden colony of ants decided that they really liked my muffins and ate half of them. But I am so smart S-M-R-T and I put half in the freezer so NYAH! I still have breakfasts for the week. Take that ants!
I guess it’s getting to be that time of the year. CHRISTMAS MUSIC TIME! I am working on yet another annoying mix for the kiddies. So far, all I know is that Fairytale of New York will be on there because I love it and Jodi doesn’t think she knows it (but I am pretty sure she does). At the moment, I am listening to Sufjan Steven’s Christmas stuff and although I like it, I am getting a little banjo overload here. Let me recommend that you take a listen instead to DJ Riko’s Christmas mixes, if you are, you know, feeling the holiday spirit at the moment (scroll way down).
