Chunky Monkey Oatmeal

On this cold winter day in November, how about a warm bowl of oatmeal!! It's filling and yummy.

Black Friday TV or Schnaaps?

Well, Black Friday shopping has come and gone and I'm happy to report I didn't participate in any of it!! I'm definitely not an early riser and don't care to shop in chaos. 

Isn't there enough insanity in the world that people really feel the need to throw themselves on a big screen T.V. and then be peeled off one by one and handcuffed! Well, I guess some folks were successful and proud of their bargain finds. 

Personally, I'm a supporter of Small Business Saturday. https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/shop-small/Supporting the local mom and pop shops in the community who work hard to make your shopping experience unique with great personal service. 


I purchased a hand carved tree by a local artist. It's wrapped in vines and lights and I didn't even have to body slam anyone to get it. In fact, I peacefully enjoyed a sample of peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate in this store. Hello...Black Friday or Schnapps? I wasn't even handcuffed!!  That deserves "a square of chocolate."


Check out the Farmer's Daughter website for more info on their handcrafted items.

Turkey Sammie's, Apple Slices and Slaw

Leftover Thanksgiving turkey sammie's anyone? 
I sliced up some turkey breast and placed on toasted thinly sliced wheat French bread. Added 1/2 slice of Swiss cheese to each sammie, then back in toaster oven to melt cheese. 

Meanwhile, mix 1 Tbsp of Greek vinagerette to about a cup of your fave slaw mix. Thinly slice 1/4 apple and put on toasted turkey. Squirt of Dijon (optional) and top it off with your slaw mix. So crunchy and tasty! How about another piece of pecan pie too? Yes please!!!

I Have Gone Bananas...I'm Now a Blogger!

My first official post as a blogger and I'm entering the blogosphere on Thanksgiving Day! As a newbie, I'm still learning as I go and trying to catch on to this whole blog thing. So, maybe I have gone bananas. We'll see..wish me luck.

With that said, it's turkey day and it's all about great food and desserts, which I hope to share some pics later. We're just having a small gathering at our house for dinner, but still much to be done, nonetheless. 

My daughter is home from college and it's nice to have her home. My first to leave the nest, so still getting accustom to her being away from home. This is her fun artwork on the bananas! I thought it appropriate for my first blog post, as it makes me smile and reminds me how "thankful" I am for my family and their silliness!
