Today was getting things started for our Thanksgiving meal on Thursday.
I think 10 of us will be here
I’ve started a pile on the counter for the Thanksgiving ingredients,
I saw Manuela at https://acultivatednest.com/ had links to several free printable Thanksgiving planner sheets. I’ve always just made my list on plain paper but this year, I printed off a few sheets that worked for me. I plan to keep them and reference them year to year.
Our 3 little house guests wanted to help peel the potatoes so I said sure!
I diced onions and celery for dressing, chopped pecans for several dishes and diced some onions just for anytime we need diced onion.
We also grated some really sharp cheese to make pimento cheese to eat in celery.
Earlier this month, my husband and I spent 9 days in Branson, Missouri. The trip had been planned for months with reservations and show tickets all paid for. My husband has several back issues and one of them flared up shortly before we left. But he still wanted to go so we did. He was physically hurting most all of them time though
There are many things to do in Branson and we like the musical shows best.
We saw The Haywood’s, Clay Cooper, Hot Rods and High Heels, Christmas Wonderland, Jersey Boys, Hughes Family Christmas, The Gatlin Brothers, The Bellamy Brothers and The Oak Ridge Boys- and maybe a few others but I can’t recall them as I type this.
We stayed in a condo and ate most of meals there. We didn’t shop except to get groceries at a huge, fairly new Aldi in Branson and of course Walmart.
It was cold in Branson!
We had a good time and got our fill of vacationing.
And this homebody is happy to be home 🏠
The Gatlin Brothers
Jersey Boys - we learned the young man on the left side of the photo graduated from the university in our town.
He is an amazing singer and we also saw him in Christmas Wonderland
Hot Rods and High Heels- a 50s theme show
Our sweet Cora- she is growing fast! She likes plain raw carrots and doesn’t want them cut up.
A funny joke about inflation
Although there is really nothing funny about inflation.
I know many people are truly struggling right now
