Not much to offer you today. It was grocery list and shopping and it was a big one. It included Thanksgiving. I also had to pick up prescriptions and get wood in as rain is coming tonight and tomorrow so they say. It's not that I am so sweet I would melt it's just easier to do all those things when it isn't raining and then when it rains I can stay inside with firelight and candlelight and cook and clean and craft to my heart's content. I was so tired when I got home I put the groceries away and took a nap! Me....a nap! Evidently the time has come for napping. But here are a few things for Thanksgiving prep!
I have always wanted to sew pretty table runners so I had best get going! Isn't this a pretty one for Fall and Thanksgiving? Log cabin or court house steps? I can't tell............
Here's a recipe from Susan Branch for Turkey Meatloaf in case you don't want to do a big turkey. I remember one year that my in-laws were coming and I made everything but the turkey which they were bringing. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how much you like your in-laws), there was a big snowstorm and they couldn't make it. The kids were wondering how we could have Thanksgiving without a turkey............well...........I defrosted several pounds of hamburger and made a meatloaf shaped like a turkey and put those fancy paper ruffles on the legs so we had turkey for Thanksgiving! LOL! This recipe might be more in keeping with the turkey theme as it actually contains turkey!
That's all for today.....I'm beat but I'll be back tomorrow to share my little Thanksgiving menu and other foods for the weeks ahead. What are your plans and foods for Thanksgiving?
