Fruit salad always works for me too, especially in the summer when you can get fresh fruit. Has Ashley's mom seen a doctor about her aversion to chocolate? Surely there's a cure. I'm glad Becky will have fun playmates today. Can't wait to see the pics, and the ones of Ashley too. She's a real cutie. Yeah, I don't mind being Little Rock at all! You're San Jose Guy around here. =) It truly is nice, and interesting, to have friends from all over the world! And I miss all the friends on here who have left. Go Butt Fumble! (aka Sanchez) LOL!

And who cares about the veggies? =) No prep - wow, I think that's a first for you since I've known ya. I saw something from Syl about cream puffs but didn't realize you and Ashley would be making them. That really will be fun! Better keep an eye on her around that chocolate frosting. You know how us girls are. We're having a roast with dill new potatoes and a salad to cover the requisite veggie portion. Between the meat and taters we don't really need a heavy veggie dish. I think Dallas and her hubs will be coming by later with some kind of dessert. Last time she offered to bring dessert, she stopped off at the grocery store on the way over and bought a Mrs. Paul's coconut cream pie that was - surprise! - frozen solid. It never did thaw so we just blew it off. Maybe she'll do a little better today. Then again... The games ought to be good ones today. Not sure if we're playing anybody or not yet, tho we might play Mark Sanchez, believe it or not. He's not much on the field but he throws a ton and is good for fantasy points. Anyhoo, have a wonderful day and tell your family Happy HAPPY Thanksgiving for me!

You're talking my language with the very rare andthe horseradish. We use a lo of rosemary also. I have two plants in a window for the winter. It is quite crowd. Got everythig done today that I wanted so am a happy camper Bryan helped me peel a billyun Yukon golds. I put them in cold water in a big stock pot and out otn the sun porch as it is cool a nights there. They lose nothing in flavor by being done a day ahead. I am sure the celebrity chefs would have canniption fit at that :) Looking forward to the festivities now that I'm most of the way done. Some mior huecleaning tomorrow to include the kitchen florr which is a mess because of me. When ae you going to your parents? Hve a great time with your parents and enjoy the srumptious roast. I may be on a fot a bit in the morning

I can sure understand why you're ready to get your mouth back to normal! Didn't the dentist say you'd have to wait several months before it would be ready for the implant, tho? That's great news about the photo book! I'm glad you're happy with it and I just know your folks are going to love it. Live and learn seems to be the norm, tho. So are you busy working on tomorrow's feast? What all are you making this year? Yep, this is the last week of the regular season in FF. Eight teams in each league will make the playoffs, so in my league only the two bottom-scoring teams will be finished for the year. In Chuck's league with 14 teams, the six teams that don't make the playoffs will still have a little something to play for in the Toilet Bowl. I can't remember how that works with 6 teams, but I guess we'll find out since we'll probably be in it. =)

My, my making pate au chou is veryt ambitious for Thanksgiving - what will you be filling the puffs with? Ashley should love helping you for sure. I am having Thanksgiving dinner at my house for the first time since Dad has passed away. It has always been my favorite holiday and back in Cali I would always host 12 - 14 people every year. This yeat it will just be my IT friend and my kitties, but I finally feel like pulling out all the stops again like the good ol days - good china, crystal, silver, candles, tablecloth, napkins with silver napkin rings..... Will take a pic if I have time and try to post it here in a LOL. Dinner menu is turkey, vegie casserole, mashed potatoes, gravy, cornbread stuffing, cranberry orange relish, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls & butter, mincemeat pie with vanilla bean ice cream, wine and after dinner drinks. Then football and food coma :-) Already setting the table with everything except the crystal (kitties might sneak up and break a glass or two if I put them out too soon). I ed'd your prime rib recipe, and it sounds delicious. Will you serve it with yorkshire pudding?

Sigh...I'm not sure. I did discuss it with her but she turned her back and refused to acknowledge me. Now the holidays are coming, the kitteh-killing machine is going (vacuum cleaner) and bad vibes are everywhere. Happy T-day if I don't see you before!

Good morning, BD. Wishing you and the lovely Miss Becky a wonderful Thanksgiving! Are you watching the 49ers game tomorrow? I'll be watching the Macy's parade and the dog show for sure, may be having turkey during the first part of the game :-) Enjoy the day my friend.

Lol on Fantasia! Elf actually did spend quite a while checking out the various aromas wafting from those clothes. If anything had moved tho, I think he would have had a heart attack. Yay Kimberly! At least she had the decency to be apologetic. The roast will be great, I'm sure. Good news from the dentist! I'm glad he thinks 90% is a good number. No deer for Chuck this year but he wasn't too upset about it. He was happy about the FF matches, tho he agrees with me it would probably still take a miracle to get into the playoffs in his league. But we're looking pretty dam good in the other league as far as the playoffs are concerned.

Just counted and it will be 14 for dinner so the big folding table comes out and a few plastic yard chairs :) That is the one family gathering I insist on everyone eating arond the table. Kind of looking forward to my cooking fest. That enthusiam may die down by this afternoon LOL I do pick recipes that can either be made ahead of time or prepped to the final cooking point. Did our finals hopping yesterday and they had buy one frozen turkey and get one free if you spent a certain amount of money which of course I did, so I picked up a couple of 12 pounders for son and half son to take home and make another day. 2 turkeys for $6 - cannot beat that, Glad the niece thing is settled. Prime rib? How do you make?
By Sylviag on Nov 26, 2014 at 5:08 AM
Hot Diggity Dog congrats! ED Paws for all the news fit to print. Hope niece has comitted one way or the other so you don't have a mad scamble today to get more food. Not sure how long I'll be here this morning as today is the big prep day but will be here tonight.

I hope his laundry never learns to walk by itself! I swear I've seen the laundry bag move by itself tho. It's a scary moment when I have to open it. Wasn't too terribly bad this time - at least it didn't have an entire week to ferment. So did Ms. Thoughtless ever manage to call or is she just planning on surprising everyone?
