Our Thanksgiving was quiet but we made up for it that weekend.
My brother in law and his wife came for an overnight. We went out for a great meal and to see a comedian just a wonderful time.
Then My Miss B came in full cooking mode just what I love to see! She has her little apron on and I am letting her go for it she did great!
This would be her mom and dad trying to build her gingerbread house. Then Miss B and I took over and decorated. So fun and so hard to let her leave at the end of the day.
I got a head cold and on my way to get medicine I saw a rainbow.
You could see where it ended. If I hadn't had the head cold I might of tried to hike to see if there really is a pot of gold! Not!
We were suppose to head to Maine with friends but because I still had a bit of a head cold we decided it was best to stay away from them and not pass it on. So after napping husband said hey lets go to the parade.
This is small town at it's best!
And Santa coming in on a fire truck who could ask for more?
I did get to a couple of church sales, I got the cute tea towel and the forks. When they are cleaned up they are so sweet.
And I have been reading Susan Branch's Isle of Dreams. I am such a fan of hers and of course she included recipes. this is apricot and pineapple jam. Very very good! and super easy.
She also included how to make marshmallows.
I changed mine up just a bit I made them pink and put peppermint in so they would be yummy for hot chocolate. I am still waiting for them to set up I will let you know.
And this time of year husband wants pork pie. I learned how to make them from his great aunt, by the time I thought I would like to learn his mom had passed away. I grew up very English so I had no idea in this world what it was the first time it was served to me.
I had never seen ground pork before and that is what they use for stuffing. I was a teenager and sat at my husband's parent's thanksgiving table and thought to myself who puts Hamburg in a turkey??? We always had bread stuffing so I passed thank you very much. (I still prefer bread stuffing)
I hope you're all taking time to enjoy Christmas and not get caught up and over whelmed.
I had my old computer fixed and for the life of me I can not get into my blog! I can on husband's computer as I was signed in a long time ago. Can anyone tell me anything to help me out. The new dashboard????I might have to get a lesson somewhere or quit blogging.
Have a great week!
