Thanksgiving eve

Thanksgiving 2019 

Smoked ham and turkey breast - Jeff is cooking outside 
Mashed potatoes- Rex
Dressing - John Mark 
Sweet potato casserole- me - made and will heat Thursday 
Corn casserole - me 
Deviled eggs - me and made today 
Green beans - me - May be plain, May be a casserole, may be both 🤷🏻‍♀️
Gravy - me 
Rolls - me 
Pumpkin and pecan tarts - Nina 
Relish tray- baby dills, green olives and celery with cheese
Cheese ball- Jimmy
Jello salad - Jimmy 




So Thursday morning,  I’ll need to put the purchased, frozen rolls out to thaw and rise, then bake just before we eat about noon. 
Stir up the corn casserole and bake it with the sweet potato casserole
Decide and do green beans 
Make gravy
Make relish plate 

Just before lunch, we will set out the buffet and everyone will serve theirselves.  



My husband surprised me with fresh flowers for both tables.  I’m pretty sure he bought them at Sprouts.  
I made the felt leaf coasters years ago,  inspired by some I saw in a magazine for  
$20 a set.  





We’re using disposable plates and utensils,  
To make them a little easier,  I wrapped them in bundles. 






The eggs and sweet potato casserole are prepared and in the fridge,  just hanging out until tomorrow.  



Our Thanksgiving preparations  have been easy and stress me, 
I’m especially thankful this year to have so much help.  


Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving 2019

Next weeks to do list


So many of you commented that you like my to do lists,  so here is this week’s list.  
We will be hosting Thanksgiving - that list will be posted soon, as the first of this week I’m concentrating on weekly cleaning and a few errands.  Cooking will come later 

I’m guessing many of you USA readers are doing similar things this week,  right?

CVS couponing and bargains





For, now I am going to keep blogging here publicly.  
I’m amazed by all the sweet comments on my last post and I want to explain a little more and will soon.  I think I have some of the sweetest readers in blog world 😍
But now, I want to share what I just bought at CVS as this is a time sensitive deal.  
I spent a total of $9.88cash and also used $32 in CVS ExtraCareBucks

Even if you don’t coupon shop,  I wanted to post about a sale at CVS right now through Wednesday for 500 count Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen and Aspirin.  These bottles are huge!  No coupon is needed,  just shop at CVS.  
My store had lots of them on the shelf too.  



The Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen 500 count bottles I bought 











The bottom of my receipt doesn’t show but it says I saved $120.45 or 92%. (That is CVS math but I’m very happy with my bargains ) 

Have a great Sunday everyone

No time for blogging

Hello blog friends,
I had this blog set to private for awhile because of some traffic from sources I don’t trust.
And also just because life is busy right with normal stuff and with family members with some health conditions.

I have no interesting photos of anything I’ve done lately but I did take photos of my mom‘s  latest crochet creations and they are all very cute.  The pattern books she used are also shown but they are not recent publications.

I may keep blogging publicly,  I may quit blogging and I may blog privately- I just don’t know.
I won’t do it abruptly again and if I blog privately, I will have find a way to invite readers I can trust.

What do you other bloggers think when you check your traffic and won’t like what you see?

Happy Thanksgiving ❤️

And below a lion, tiger and bear Oh My!
 And last but not least,  a turtle.
