Happy Thanksgiving

Wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We had a really super one! We stayed at home and I missed the kids BUT Jim took me to Bon Appetit for a wonderful semi romantic lunch. It was so beautiful.

We sat and watched the Gulf of Mexico as we had...gotta tell you this because it was soooo good...acorn bisque soup with corn, a marvelous salad with greens that were so tasty. The salad of course had their own dressing, pine nuts, sliced black olives and cherry tomatoes...on an iced plate. Then we chose the traditional North Carolina theirs turkeys are special, I guess, roasted pecan stuffing, wonderfully steamed mini beets and asparagus and THE best cranberry relish I have EVER eaten. Of course freshly made french rolls and butter, and aromatic tea. You could smell how wonderful the tea was as you were putting up to your mouth and it was crystal clear served in goblets that made it sparkle!!! Oh so good.

Then Jim had Godiva chocolate mousse with whipped cream and one of those long cookie tubes. I can never remember the name for them and if I did I couldn't spell it. I had pumpkin swirled cheesecake with whipped cream. Well, not WHIPPED cream which was my disappointment for the day. Duh. In a restaurant of that caliber you DO NOT serve what I call fake whip cream. I know it makes it easier to get the desserts all ready and set to go, but come on...are you class or not...and how long does it take to put a dollop and a swirl of whipped cream on something...AND yes, even the men waiters could handle it. Still...delicious. Had enough to bring home and had it again for lunch.

Hope you all enjoyed your holiday, too.

Just been scrapping away. Did some LO's and let everything else around here slide. Big deal. No one here but us!! LOL

Going to go and get myself put together a little. Jim is due home soon. He had to work yesterday and today. Poor guy. But he doesn't care that much to be at home. Me...I love it!!!

Barb, I'm late to the show on these Lo's but they are awesome. The title looks like you hand chalked it -- great!

I especially love the going to the dogs page and your example of the doggie sidewalk surprise!! TFS.
