I am ready are you?
I am, I am, I have the Christmas tree up, lit and decorated. I have the wreaths on the front door. I have the Christmas music playing. I just love that part smile, smile. I have my Christmas cards completed and ready to mail out to all corners of the world. Got my gingerbread house built and the house smells like Christmas…now.
I will be posting many, many cookie recipes over the month of December. I will post how to make a gingerbread house. I will post some simple appetizer recipes. I will also post the things to keep you in the gift giving mood ~ or try to.
Okay, I dropped the ball on the Thanksgiving Blogging why….I had a root canal yep I did. I had family in from out of town staying with me. Lets just say should not have had both at the same time. NOPE!! I smoked a large bird on the Big Green Egg for the 1st time. Are you getting the picture? At one point this bird was on FIRE, it sure was, no there is not pictures of this. Why ~ I did not want this documented ~ no I didn’t. But, let me explain I had three men that thought I did not know what in the world I was doing manning a fire. So, I had lots of unwanted help so hence the fire ~ you gettin the picture here. Well, to my chagrin the silly thing was really good ~ it was, I have witnesses it was moist and tasty…it was gone after one meal a 20 pound one!! Believe me I had my doubts fur sure! We had lots of other food we even had two smoked pork loins but after the turkey was gone everyone complained why didn’t you do 2 turkeys ~ What! Lets just say they laughed at me when that turkey came off the smoker ~ it was black as the A’s of spades, it sure was. I know they will get lots of mileage out of this one for years…Thank God it was good…. They now call me and say hows that black bird…heeee heeee
I have lots of things to be thankful for …food to eat, nice warm bed to sleep in, my health, my family that travels miles to eat my big black burnt birds, friends, neighbors and a good sense of humor. Spend time with family and those you love make the great memories ~ even if it is you that is making them laugh! Laughing is good !
