We’re having a great visit . . missing Chad and his family, of course. We had great food . . too much food. We started with the overnight peach french toast and sausage for breakfast. For dessert, I ended up making Diana’s mom’s pumpkin pie recipe which was so good. I didn’t make the cake because Vince bought a really bad cake but . . it was a cake so I made a pecan pie.
We had cornbread dressing which mom and my aunt assured me was the best dressing they’ve ever had. I think my mom tells me that every time she eats my dressing. We had giblet gravy, ham, green bean casserole, cherry cranberry salad, cranberry sauce, rolls and I think that’s it.
Mom and dad are amused with the chickens. They can’t believe how Miss Hattie and a few others follow me around and want to be held and petted. They think the bantam babies are so cute. Dad says our Dominique rooster is beautiful. Roscoe seems to be their favorite though. He struts around and shows his personality and it’s hard not to like him. I love that he minds his own business and doesn’t bother us or the other chickens.
Mom said it’s been a way long time since she’s gathered eggs but she’s done it a lot the past several days.
We’ve worked in the garden, and have done lots of cooking but haven’t done any sewing at all.
Today we plan to relax and do nothing really . . I had made sausage/kale soup before they got here, as well as chicken and noodles so we’ll eat that or leftover Thanksgiving dinner . . no cooking at all today!
Better . . no shopping! Except maybe just a little online shopping . . maybe!
Who’s shopping today? What are you buying? How were the crowds?
