Even though our turkey got pushed to Sunday, it was absolutely delicious. I brined the bird again this year and then Ben smoked it in Trogdor. Wonderful. Came out perfectly (although Ben says next time we need to smoke with a lighter tasting wood.) We did a small meal, with just mashed taters, stuffing and rolls and of course that turkey. And tonight? Turkey Tetrazzini with the massive amounts of turkey I have left. I cut up the two cups I need and I still have what feels like the whole bird left.
Today is the last day of November. Holy sheep, this month flew by fast. On the last day (or during the last week) I start going over the past month. I review our budget, print out statements, go over my monthly to do list and see what I got done and what needs to be carried over. And this month...
I didn't get a damn thing done.
Ok, I did weekly chores. But nothing on my monthly list got checked off. Boy do I feel like a slacker. I wonder if it was just because I was gearing up for Thanksgiving. Or maybe because the cold makes me go all lizard and I slip into a lethargic state of mind.
Does anyone else get a little crazy and misplaced this time of year? I mean it's not even December yet and I'm feeling kinda nuts. I could understand if it was closer to Christmas, but I still have a month! Oh well, maybe I'll do better next month.
We did get one thing done this weekend. We put up the Christmas Tree:
Why yes, that is a hand knit tree skirt. I pulled it out of
And yes. It's a fake tree. I was ashamed the year we bought it. And now I adore it for it's ease of set up and take down. And that I don't have to water it.
P.S. Don't forget about the Anniversary Giveaway! You have until Thursday night to enter.
