HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK TO EVERYONE...Today it was 57 and
I went outside with Gpa. Playin' in the mud and sniffin' stuff....Already knew
I was gettin' a bath. I heard Gpa spell the word at lunch to Gma.
They think, I can't Spell! As much readin' as Gma and I do...of Course, I can Spell!
So yep, I had a bath and the works to be ready for Thanksgiving.
I have a new T-shirt that is pink with dark pink trim. It says:
"this is what Spoiled looks like!" I'm wearin' it tomorrow for
the grand-kids to see. They both should have one too...Since,
Gma has spoiled the whole furmily! They now called with their
own requests for special twists to their cookies and baked stuff.
Can you believe it?????
We finally found the ultimate soft chocolate chip cookie recipe.
This will make Gpa and grandson very happy. The grand-kids wanted
sugar cookies without frosting. Hooman-bro and Gpa wanted with
frostin'. Hooman-sis and kids wanted monster cookies only with
chocolate chips and M&M's. Chocolate chunk cookies for Gpa and
grandson. The peanut-butter blossoms, there were 3 different
requests. Some with Hershey kisses, some with peanut-butter cups
and some with caramel cups. There had to be 2 kinds of pie
to make everyone happy. Pumpkin and Apple. Used some of the
apple pie filling we canned this fall. Made pumpkin and apple
sauce muffins. Son-in-law and Gma are not fussy....Those 2
eat everything and rarely drop anything for ME!!!!
SSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOO it's late afternoon and the last of the baking
for the Holiday is done. Tons in the freezer but still have
several kinds of cookies to make after T-day to do the holiday
gift boxes. I think, I heard mention of fudge makin' and
caramel corn. I LOVE caramel corn and work real hard to watch
for any droppings'.
The cauliflower,broccoli,celery,carrots,peppers are cleaned
for vegetable tray. The homemade sweet and dill pickles are
in our extra fridge waiting. The turkey breast still has a
little ice in it...So we will finish defrosting with cold
water. Hooman-sis will bring the pan of German dressing.
The baked buns for sandwiches at supper time. Chex mix to
snack on while playing games. Gma has corn and crescent rolls.
We're coolin' a bottle of cranberry twist wine for the big
people. The grand-kids have kid wine.(sparkling grape juice)
Gpa bought snack candies for the grand-kids too! Myself and
Precious are waiting for the turkey! Of course, I save room
for muffins and cookies.
The house is clean and the laundry is washed. Took us the
past 3 days to cover all our bases. We don't think, we forgot
a thing.... I don't know why, we spend so much time
cleaning before a furmily gathering? When everyone leaves
it is all dirty anyway! Gma is obsessive and says, she'll
be on her last breath...the day the kids come home and
the house isn't clean.
This afternoon Gma and I have been counting all of our
blessings. This is a special Thanksgiving because my
hooman-bro has only been with us 1 time for Thanksgiving
since 2000. He lives in the Twin Cities in Minnesota.
He won't be home for Christmas this year. He is working
the day before and the day after. Someone who is married
and has kiddies can be off work. Gma finished all his
holiday goodies to take home with him. If he wants some
caramel corn she will make him some this weekend.
Gma is tired, so we are goin' order a take-out pizza
for supper. Yippy! I get to ride in the car and use
the butt warmers....I love to ride and it's been awhile.
The warm weather allowed Gpa to fish the leaves out
of the rain gutters before the temperatures dip...then
they would have been frozen down again. The weather was
real nice this week 40-50's, but tomorrow we start
coolin' off. Back into the deep freeze! Our snow did all
melt but it is still muddy and icy in places. Sure hope
the switch in weather isn't bringin' the snow back....
I'm wishin' all my pals, a very Happy Blessed Thanksgiving.
Can't wait to hear about all your T-day adventures....
Hugs and Kisses, Mazy
