Good morning all. It is a beautiful day today and unseasonably warm, which it has been all fall. I'm not a fan of winter weather, so I am totally ok with that.
Yngwie and his girlfriend are home from college for Thanksgiving and spent Sunday afternoon making hard candy. YUM! They made raspberry, spearmint, cinnamon, and grape. The first batch they did was the grape and apparently they didn't get it quite to temperature because it would never harden. They had thrown that over into a bowl and given up on it, but I wouldn't let them throw it away. After they left to go fishing, I re-boiled the grape blog and it hardened up just fine. Just so you know, if it ever happens to you, it can be re-boiled!
Spending the rest of the week getting ready for Thanksgiving! I think we will be having around 10 people for lunch! I love to cook for crowds!

This weekend went by in a whirlwind!! Yngwie and his friends came in Saturday to decorate the Christmas trees! It was so much fun having all these teenagers in the house, laughing and having a good time! While they were busy decorating I made some homemade chili, with all the fixin's, pigs in a blanket, chocolate chip cheeseball with graham crackers and a homemade pumpkin cheesecake!! YUM! All was devoured in a matter of minutes!
A cute and sexy little elf lady on an ashtray. (Do they even make ashtrays anymore?)
