one down..one more to go

As i have said before I’m not a fan of this month at all, weather wise, or people wise, the weather doesn’t know what its wants to do,although we have been very lucky this year.  and  then there’s the people… People of all shapes, coming at you,from every direction, and in the USA there’s Thanksgiving..which mean there’s always a big get together some where….. and that usually means travel… maybe i wouldn’t mind so much if we were going some where warm(er)..beaches and sunshine..you know:)!!!and of course people have begun shopping for Christmas.. so traffic is crazy, stores are crazy..it drives me crazy :)!!!  jus’say’n! so with our any more of my complaining or whining, and i don’t mean to, let me  get to what ive been doing.

  1. OMG what a fabulous spread Kathy. I would have been happy with the lasagna, molasses cookies and of course, the wine. Maybe that’s why no-one wants me hosting any holiday event…they all know I believe in fewer choices. As always, I love seeing what catches your eye on your walk about!

  2. wow, I do envy your Thanksgiving festival……. all that tucker…(Australian for food, haha) your dessert dishes are quite different to ours, apart from Apple Pie, which must be an international favourite! Maybe you know Pavlova, a soft meringue type dessert, which we and the New Zealanders have been arguing over which country it originated in. Generally served with Passionfruit/Raspberry and wads of fresh cream. And Trifle, which I think is an English dessert, but made Australian by the addition of all of our more warm climate fruits. These two would be at most Australian feasts, along with cheesecake and a custardy thing which my husband makes. (Ugh !) So thanks for your view of Thanksgiving.

Thanks For your kind words and for stopping by.
