I think it was Judith that asked what's on the menu for this weekend - so here's the list:
-Turkey (of course.) Although this year my father has decided not to try and light the grass on fire with hot oil from the deep fryer. There's nothing more classy than several men standing around a huge deep fryer full of dead bird and trying not to spill scalding oil on everything. (Why didn't I take pictures last year?) Luckily my mother has put her foot down, and is roasting it in the oven like a normal person.
-We are also doing a ham. Our 13 plus people seems to be blossoming to 20...
-Rosemary carrots, garlic whipped potatoes, stuffing, gravy, creamed corn - pretty much every starch and carb known to man. Oh yeah...and buns.
-Apple pie and pumpkin pie for dessert. I will officially weigh 10 pounds more by Monday.
Today, a woman I work with gave me her Thanksgiving village! When she asked me if I wanted it, I thought it would be a couple buildings and a few people. It was 6 buildings, 3 trees, and a dozen or more people and scenes with pumpkins, scarecrows, and animals. Jackpot!
I haven't taken a photo of it yet, so I posted something similar from Department 56 above so you get an idea. I spent about an hour putting it up and lighting it. I am such a geek. This does however, qualify me for another day of October fun re: The Domestic Witch!
Please forgive me if I don't do the 'homework' that comes with these awards. I'm really thrilled, but am not sure after all the rambling in this post, anyone will stay long enough to hear the answers to the award questionaire. And, I'm not very good at picking people to pass these on to, because I love all of the 100 or so blogs I read! (I was never very good at picking for Red Rover in school either!) Just know I am honoured, and really enjoy both your blogs!
