a turkey, a gift and a nap

Well, Thanksgiving was perfect. There was some minor family drama... but I'm not going to dwell on it. As a great singer once said"Don't Worry, Be Happy!" But I did miss those who decided to go another way for the holiday.

So about that bird. What an awesome meal we had. My aunt spent the night and cooked the bird. She also makes a killer stuffing and sweet potato casserole. I made my grandmothers special Sawdust Salad Recipe(Jello, pineapple, marshmallows, homemade custard with pineapple juice cooked in and topped with a fluffy layer of whip cream mixed with cream cheese. Yummmmmmm! There was so much good food, I'm resembling a tick today! Time for my Tony Little Gazelle. After all the guest left and I watched a little of the Ghost Hunters Marathon it was time to paint. You see Tomorrow I'm going to a friends wedding. They love to cook age old family recipes of great Italian Food. So above is what I came up with. I hope they like it.

I so wanted to go shopping today. Micheal's was going to have some great Black Friday coupons sales and other door busters. But the Sergent said no :( I know Dave Ramsey would agree.

Did I say I'm about to settle in for a long winters nap. Just me a my sweet girls and the Sergent. Enjoying the extra family time this 4 day weekend is treating us with.

God Bless You everyone!
Happy Thanksgiving

I think I'm coming to your house next year!!! That sounded delicious! After your comment, I posted about our interesting dinner ;) I love your bistro sign and I know they will too! My sister married into the Martin clan so I was picturing that in her kitchen!! Well, my kids are still at their inlaws so the man and I are alone for the evening... that means we get to eat fish for dinner because they don't like it!!!

The Professor and a few others went 'shopping' but they did not 'buy'. MamaMia is at work (retail, poor baby) and the only thing I bought today was coffee. But then, I am the world's worst shopper--hate it!
