Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

In the spirit of the holidays I’m going to *try* to blog more.  I won’t say work has settled down yet but I’m hoping it will. Mom and dad moved into their new house about 2 weeks ago.  When they found it, I told mom they were having Thanksgiving if they were in by then.  They were, so we did.  Mom invited Matt’s parents as well so we had a nice family Thanksgiving. Thursday morning Matt helped me pack my…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Matt and I had a nice thanksgiving day. We woke up, finished straightening up the house and waited to begin lunch. Matt put the turkey in the fryer a little after noon and my parents arrived around 1:30. I started the rolls when they arrived and then began cooking around 2:00. Everything went fairly well and by 4 we were almost ready to eat. The stupid corn casserole took a lot longer to cook than the recipe said but it…

Thanksgiving

Went really well.  This was mine and Matt’s first year really hosting.  Matt fried the turkey and I made maple sweet potatoes, mac and cheese and green bean casserole.  Matt’s mom made the corn casserole and two stuffings.  Everything was delicious. I must say I’m pretty impressed with my cooking skills.  Everything I made, with the exception of the chocolate meringue pie, were new recipes.  I know most of this stuff isn’t super hard anyway but I am still proud…

Hello November

Hello November

Today I had lunch outside with the hubs.  Actually we’ve had the windows open for a few days now and one might even say it’s a bit warm in here.  Literally, it’s kind of hot in the house, in NOVEMBER!  I am not going to complain though.  This weather has  been amazing for this time of year. I hope the weather stays this way for a few more days.  With Thanksgiving only a few days away, it would be nice…
