The past few days around here have been filled with fun all around. P took Caroline hunting and Gulley’s husband and boys joined them and so they had a great time hunting while Gulley and I had a great time shopping and getting pedicures.
And I also got to go buy all new tires for my car and that’s always an exciting way to spend money. Except the opposite of that.
But I just wanted to take a minute to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving and share a few quick things that you might want and or need to complete your holiday experience.
I made one of these for myself last year and loved it so much. And then Gulley asked me to make her one but I ran out of time and then it was New Year’s and what was the point?
But one of the things we did over the last two days was make a run to Michael’s to buy yarn and wreath forms and we got our craft on. I’m proud to say she is now the owner of a pom-pom wreath. And I’m in the process of making myself a pom-pom garland for my tree. It’s going to be a pom-pom Christmas around here.
This might be a fun thing to do instead of camping out in front of Best Buy to get a new T.V. at a bargain price.
This is another thing I’ve learned to make courtesy of Edie. I made this beef stew last week and it is truly the best I’ve ever had. I rose up and called my own self blessed when I tasted the first bite.
I would plan to make this for when your whole family eventually mutinies against the very idea of any more turkey leftovers. Let’s be honest, turkey isn’t that great the first time around and I sure don’t need it stuffed in a sandwich for a week after.
I posted a picture of Cheez Whiz on Instagram this weekend and said it was beginning to look a lot like Thanksgiving and people responded with a split decision of envy and disgust. Listen, do not think you’re better than the Cheez Whiz. If it was good enough for the 1970’s then it’s good enough for you. And I personally don’t believe this casserole would be as good with real cheddar cheese. Don’t try to convince me otherwise. Bottom line, haters gonna hate.
As a bonus, the link to the broccoli-rice casserole also has the recipe for my mother-in-law’s dressing. It is absolutely delicious and contains no Cheez Whiz for you sophisticates out there.
I’ll be back on Friday with Fashion Friday.
And, like Linus, let’s take a minute to thank God for the blessings he has given us this year.
