A Few Notes...

Firstly, I would like to extend my extreme gratitude to any and everyone who has served in the armed forces or are currently serving today. It is a great task and unbelievable selflessness that truly allows a person to put their life on hold and on the line for so many others to fight for the belief of freedom and liberty for all. I stand 110% behind all of those who serve this country with pride and dignity. I hope that you all have done something not just today, but everyday to recognize these individuals. Regardless, of your political beliefs, I hope that you support our troops.

Secondly, Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I have managed to end up as one of the cookers this year. I was asked to make seafood quiche, which I can admit is always an experiment and I totally end up with wayyy more than I plan for. The problem you ask...well I have 4 different recipes that I like certain parts of so, I mix them all together sorta and usually end up with 4-6 pies depending on the pan I use. I am going to buy a tart pan this year so maybe that will cut down on the amount that I end up with. I also am making a surprise dish for my cousin which I can't disclose at the moment in case she reads this! And my own personal challenge of an experimental dessert. I'm thinking gingerbread as one and I have been looking for a really good sweet potato bread/pudding recipe. I have a few contenders, but I may end up combining the recipes on that too. I need to be finalizing these plans soon though as there really isn't too much time left in between now and then. Hopefully no one asks me to make a cake *fingers crossed* I'll do it, but I can't see the bottom of my plate at the moment!

Thirdly, so the gift count. I'm still at lucky number 1 and I haven't really thought about anything else to get either. She'll be here on the 20th or the 21st (can't remember) so I really need to get that under wraps too. I'm feeling the pressure. I'm going to start looking, maybe Friday I promise!!

Happy Hump Day!!
