Black Friday

My cousin hosted Thanksgiving dinner for our family, I made stuffing, which is a family favorite. There's a "don't ask, don't tell" policy for the squeamish. Neck meat, chopped heart and gizzard, and liver. You know, the stuff that's in the bag. I remember watching my grandmother whacking at that liver when I was a child. I usually whir it in a food processor, but I grabbed my knife and did it grandma's way.

Here it is before I baked it off. It was delicious, and I gave the leftovers away. The Inspector was sad I left the green bean casserole too.

I did a little pillowcase sewing last weekend. Hollywood, her charge, and the Inspector all get fun pillowcases for Christmas. Can you guess which cases belong to which person?

Here's an easy appetizer to try. Brick of cream cheese topped with jalapeno pepper jelly. I also saw a recipe that topped the cheese with salsa verde. I'm trying that one next. I've been steady eating since Monday. We had a huge potluck at work which resulted in two additional days of leftovers. Then turkey day yesterday. Today I'm making a mojo turkey.

Look what the UPS man brought me! Merry Christmas to me. I haven't figured out the needle threader, but I'm sure I will eventually. I started Quiltville's annual mystery quilt this morning. I think this might be my fifth Quiltville mystery. They're really a lot of fun. Sometimes I even finish them!

  1. If you figure out the needle threader, let me know! That Juki was my Christmas present last year and I still can't use the needle threader. Great machine!


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
