I'm Back.....

Hope everyone had a wonderful
Thanksgiving with their family!

I finally feel like I am recovered.
I still have my boot on but hopefully,
I can shed it when I go to the
doctor for my follow-up next Friday.

On top of recovering from
surgery I also got sick earlier
this week and I don't know but
between the two I felt like my bum
was kicked! I started feeling
better on Wednesday fortunately,
just in time to start the holiday cooking.

This year I stayed home considering I
can't drive I thought it was a wise move.
We had a very nice quiet Thanksgiving
with just us. Still a lot of cooking
though, Turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes,
sweet potatoes, green bean casserole (only
way my boys will eat green beans), rolls,
pumpkin pie and for the first time ever
I made a pecan pie.

not too shabby and tasted pretty
good as well - you just never know
when you try a recipe for the first time

Here is part of the spread one of
the great things about my guys
is they don't over indulge just
because it is Thanksgiving and they
like what they like so it keeps the
number of items fairly easy.

The turkey turned out pretty good
stayed moist which is sometimes a challenge.
My husband likes to carve the turkey and
put the carved meat only on the platter.
Hence the photo is the roasting pan.

I also was able to get a lot of stitching
done yesterday. I woke up at 5:00 yes
in the morning and stitched for about
3 hours before anyone else got up.
Then I continued throughout the
day since I had to be near the
kitchen to check on the turkey
and make the rest of the food.

The boys seemed to enjoy!

I tried to take a photo of all of them
looking at the camera at the same
time - finally gave up before
icicles formed on their food.

My little guy though shows no
inhibitions at all. He loves the
turkey leg and if you notice he has a
small band-aid on his thumb from
helping dad peel the potatoes.

Looks like I have my own
little Henry VIII in the

  1. Great pictures! It looks like you had a wonderful day. I have yet to try a pecan pie, though I've saved a few recipes. Maybe this Christmas will be the day...
