Thanksgiving Leftovers ~ One Month til Christmas!

Good 44º raining morning. 1/4" so far in the last hour. No radar, so I am guessing these are the "isolated showers" the weather guys talked about!

Ok, kids... here are some great recipes for those Thanksgiving leftovers.....

Here is some interesting weather trivia....
See if your city is listed.... Medford is....
Thanks Debbie for this!

Yesterday was a busy cooking eating day. I hope everyone had an enjoyable one. I went to Jean's for dinner. She made turkey, stuffing, frozen cranberry Jell-o salad, gravy,pumpkin pies, apple pie. Jen made mashed potatoes and yams. I made deviled eggs (three flavors.. regular, parmesan, and bacon), french cut green beans with Rotel tomatoes, and a panko crust, and cheesecake. STUFFED! There were 12 of us.... Jen's friend Sandy (from So Cal), her husband John, Jake and Paige and their dog Zöe (soooo sweet). Jen's cousins Marie and Don. Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, and Jean and I.
