2. Fried Chicken. (I can still taste my Mom’s fried chicken and it been well over 30 years!)
3. Prime Rib (I’m a midwest girl at heart)
4. Almost any kind of bread
5. Ice Cream ( Especially Rocky Road)
6. Moe’s clam chowder (Moe’s is a restaurant on the Oregon Coast)
7. French Toast
10. Donuts (especially with chocolate frosting and cream filled)
There aren’t too many foods I don’t like which, I guess, explains why I need to lose weight!🤣
Tonight my best friend Jenny called me when she got off work and said she was on her way over. She asked me to meet her outside when she got to the RV park and she had something for me. It’s so hard not to give her a hug when I see her, but we tried to keep our distance from each other. Look what she brought for Dennis and I.
Isn’t it just the sweetest little tree? When her mother was in a nursing facility she had bought her a little 3 1/2 to 4 foot tree. It had a long trunk and this greenery at the top of it. She and Neal offered the tree to us to use in our trailer, but it was just too big and we didn’t have any place for it. So Neal cut the long trunk off and made this new base for it. Inside the present on the right, there are control boxes that let you set the lights to whatever color you want or you can make them stay on or flash on and off. Wasn’t this just the sweetest gift? I love the little tree. It’s covered with ornaments already too. It’s wonderful to have such good friends who care about little things
like this and think of us. We are so blessed!
Although, like many of you we will be alone for Thanksgiving this year, Alex sent a message over our family WeChat group that we needed to have a virtual Thanksgiving dinner together. So we will we’ll all be online together in a video chat on Thursday and hopefully we will manage to time it right so that we can eat our meals together. It will be noon for us, 1:00 for Jamie‘s family in Montana, 2:00 for Mandy’s family in Nebraska and 8 in the evening for Alex and Tara in London. Tara is excited to cook her first Thanksgiving dinner. The kids and grandkids were all here last year for Thanksgiving and that was the last time I’ve seen any of them. It was Tara‘s first Thanksgiving dinner and she really enjoyed it. What a wonderful weekend we all had together.
This is our family’s favorite sweet potato dish. I highly recommend it. Tara and Alicia both requested it this year so Mandy wrote it out for them. My copy only has the ingredients listed with no instructions! I guess I have made it so many times, I knew exactly what to do, but still needed a reminder of the amounts of each ingredient. I highly recommend this dish. It is so good it could almost be a dessert. Instead of fresh sweet potatoes or yams, you can also use canned sweet potatoes, just be sure to drain all of the liquid off of them first.
I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday. Does anyone have big plans or are we all staying home alone, together?
Blessings and hugs,
