I'm not sure what got into me, but I cooked, and cooked, and baked, and baked, and then we ate. No way could we possibly eat all this food that I made. An after thought, why do I cook all this food on Thanksgiving? I'm really not sure. I watched the pilgrim shows, maybe that influenced me too prepare turkey, dressing, cranberry salad, biscuits, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, the best gravy I've ever made, (used evaporated milk, turkey drippings), creamy corn, (real cream, bacon grease), spinach artichoke casserole. All Southern receipts from a magazine I drooled over prior to Thanksgiving. Then today once again, I pondered the same thoughts while eating the king carb Thanksgiving. Why on earth do I, each and every Thanksgiving cook all this food? It must be a generational thing, guessing.
Anyway, carbs and all, it was tasty.
Did I mention I did not repeat the meal for dinner? Nope, I had two pieces of pumpkin pie for dinner with fresh whipped cream on top. A big stinking dollop of fresh melt in your mouth whipped cream made with vanilla paste.
Spotty Christmas at home... That's what happens when you own a hand made shop. Time is of the essence. Speaking of essence...
New Cranberry Spice Room Spray smells amazing!
Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday! If I wasn't a small business owner I'd without a doubt still support my local small businesses. I feel strongly about supporting small business. The big chains are nice, but the small shops and boutiques are better! I feel blessed to live in a county seat town that houses over twenty-five shops and boutique in their historic downtown. We also have ten eateries. Italian, Mexican, Down Home, Vegan, and they all serve up great foods.
With all good holiday wishes,
