Happy Sunday TKW Family!  How was your Thanksgiving? Did you survive Black Friday shopping? Our Thanksgiving was really nice; just the two of us, in our pajamas eating like royalty. I did have a minor issue in the kitchen when a 20 pound butcher block board fell smack across the top of my foot rendering me with a hobble for a few days. But eh, the holidays must go on, right? My foot hurts but it’s odd as it hasn’t really turned black ‘n blue where, if you know me, I turn bruise if the wind blows too hard. But I’m a tough ol’ bird I suppose.

As for Black Friday shopping, there is not enough money to get my butt out at the butt crack o’ dawn to stand in line hundreds deep in hopes of getting one of the 4 ridiculously priced items in the store. No thank you. I was perfectly content shopping from the comfort of my bed sipping hot cocoa while the Hallmark channel was on and I was nice and cozy. I’m not one that likes huge crowds of people and let’s face it, people are just flat out rude and mean in those lines. I mean Black Friday is black not for the sales but for the hate and rage it brings out in people. Sorry but I don’t roll like that. I’m not a mean person and I certainly don’t have rage. But some y’all out there that get that way shopping, you need to chill out and apologize for being jerks to those that are genuine and kind that remain classy while shopping. No tv or toy is worth being a butthead.

As for us we did partake in some sales on Black Friday. I bought another Instant Pot but the 8qrt one. OMG did you see the judicious price Amazon had it for?  $81! People that’s INSANE! I bought that one and will give Mama Fantabulous my 6-quart one as she said “I know that one works as I see the foods you create in it!” lol We also picked up 3 office chairs, 3 new desks and 3 floor pads for under our chairs.

Do you make freezer meals with your leftovers?

Happy Sunday TKW Family!  Now that Fall is here in the ‘burgh, we tend to gravitate more towards comfort foods. Where I live the leaves are falling and are EVERYWHERE, the days, while still warm turn to chilly at night. The weather is odd to be honest. If you leave the house in the morning, you need a sweater or light jacket but by say 10:30am you’re hot and when you leave work you put on the AC. By 6:30pm you’re cold so on goes the furnace, fuzzy socks and sweater. I wonder what it’ll be like when we finally move out West and we don’t have to deal with these types of things. For those of you that were used to the 4 seasons or snow at Christmas and moved out west, was it hard to get used to?

I used to say “I could never imagine Christmas without snow” but I honestly can’t remember the last time we had a white Christmas. It’s like our winters with snow don’t really happen until February. Oh sure we get the butt-cold weather (seriously that’s the worse) but no real snow. *shrugs* But right now, our focus is on the leaves. Having 5 acres where you HAVE to pick up the leaves simply put, sucks! You can’t leave it on the ground as they kill the grass. My next house – I want a non-shedding tree, non-growing grass and no bugs. LOL So yeah, pretty much I’m living in Lego-Land!

This weekend I was (still am) super busy in the kitchen working on recipes and upcoming posts. Like right now I have pizza dough proofing in a cast iron skillet for maybe a breakfast pizza. I haven’t decided on that yet. Plus I have 2 casseroles to make and a chicken sheet pan dinner. But I’m tired today. Last week was just busy and we traveled all over the place to get these bar stools for the downstairs. So they opened up an At Home store here and if you’ve never been in one, you MUST!  They remind me of a way larger Home Goods (which you all know is my favorite store) but with a little bit of everything. So you all know Mr. Fantabulous HATES shopping (he doesn’t count Home Depot or Lowes as shopping as that’s necessary stuff – I guess underwear or milk aren’t necessities?!) but when we were out the one day I told him I wanted to check out the store to see if they had items we could use for the house once we’re finished with the remodel.
I need a week of Sundays!
