As I sit here this Friday morning, sipping my coffee, looking for new blog posts and finding very few, I thought I should step up to the plate and post something. I realize you are all busy. However, this is my morning ritual. I drink coffee and read and comment on blog posts. Today is no different than any other day for me – yesterday was – but not today. Can you see that I might be going through blog withdrawal? Not a pretty sight.
Oh lordy, did we eat yesterday! The day started off with my fabulous (if I do say so myself) French Toast. Don contributed Fakin’ Bacon – tastes like bacon but isn’t. Then dinner….you can see by the menu that the MHC household ate well. To be frank, we overate. I cannot resist mashed potatoes…or stuffing…or my Grandmother’s biscuit recipe. Or anything on that list, to be honest. You know we are vegetarians, hence the quotation marks around “Swedish Meatballs” – again, not really meat.
Don usually does the daily dinner cooking here because he likes to. I like to bake. It works out nicely. But yesterday was a special occasion and I made the mashed potatoes, green beans, biscuits and pumpkin pie. I also coordinated the timing on everything, a task made more difficult by two dogs who insist on being in the thick of things. And today? Leftovers. Umm-mmm good. We are grateful.
I was out and about the other day and found this sign:
It’s made of very thick cardboard. The gold letters in ‘Lady Duff’ are raised. I’m a sucker for this type of art deco lettering and I had to bring it on home to the studio. At the moment, the sign is living right next to Letitia – she is, after all, wearing undergarments.
I hope your Thanksgiving celebrations were filled with good food and good company, my friends.
