Thanksgiving is upon us and I for one fully enjoy this holiday. One of the main reasons is because I have no part in preparing/cooking the turkey. I am in charge of more delicate and much more important items, such as the mashed potatos and the rolls. hahaha All kidding aside, I do very much enjoy this holiday becuase it’s one of the few times where my entire family gets together (even if it is just for one meal). We have maybe 3 turkeys all of which are prepapred and cooked differently and by 3 different people. There’s ham, potatos, yams, corn, etc….and desserts galore! My favorite dessert being a home-made carrot cake with home-made creamcheese-style icing…it is spectacular! so spectacular it has it’s own nickname…sock-it-to-me icing! hahaha All that greatness and I don’t know the recipie 😦 I have never even been invited to the kitchen while it’s being made for fear of the recipie getting out. I still have hope that some day I will be handed down the recipie. I will be posting some pictures of our “Central American Style Turkey” and maybe the recipie to that 🙂

Being that this and the next few holidays are mostly family oriented, I completely dislike all this Black Friday nonsense. Why do corporations want to taint such great holidays and traditions? I just don’t get it. I for one refuse to partake in such nonsence but then again, I;ve never been fond of sleeping outside of a store to get a deal on a crockpot. I might be inclined to stand in a line for a reaaally good deal on a larga plasma TV but definitely not just to shop. I will be home spending time with my family. For those of you who will be attending; Good Luck!!

Lastly, I recently was offered a few samples of ‘The Truly Awesome Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookie” for myself and for family and friends from and I just have to say, they were great! Definitely will be purchasing more of those (maybe even for Thanksgiving). The cookies can be found at Ralphs, Kroger and all of the Kroger fam stores. Check them out!

Bidding you farewell,
ME 🙂
