Shopping yesterday at Harry & David
(Max the Moose),Costco, and Cash & Carry....fun! At Harry & D I got: Pumpkin Pecan and White Chocolate Cranberry coffees... Snapea Caesar Bacon Crisps, and apple beer!
At Costco I got a new phone system with 4 phones! Now I don't have to carry one around with me and forget where I set it down!!!
And at Cash & Carry I got grape seed oil, vegetable and clam base for soups etc, 'infused rice' which is a long grain rice, partially cooked, and infused with "Mexican flavor" !
I also picked up Maggie a new bed, cat food, dog chews and bones, and lemon juice! Even though it was a Saturday, it was fun. Gotta say, I wore my USMC sweat shirt and didn't see ONE guy with a USMC hat or shirt on!! Surprising.
I love it... ask my son Brian a question and with his delicious (pun) sense of humor he answers.... Thanksgiving dinner will be at Jen's mom's house. Family friends and relatives will be there from So. Cal. I asked Brian, "What do you want me to bring for Thanksgiving?" .... his answer:
"I would like Prime Rib, fresh corn on the cob, deviled eggs, watermelon, lemon cake, more lemon cake, fried okra, gumbo, a few rainbow rolls, albacore sashimi, a whole rack of lamb, sugar free gluten free butterscotch cookies, peanut butter balls, 1 cherry slurpee, 3 all beef hot dogs no bun, curly fries, and mint chip ice cream."
Brian is funny and always makes Kristen and I laugh! He doesn't like okra, gumbo, lamb, or probably some of the other things he mentioned! I will make deviled eggs. I will make cheesecake if Jen doesn't. And anything else I can contribute.... Mom's Rolls probably too.
Ok, now that the elections are over with........ I should get up my Christmas lights.... ah, yes. There they are. Whew, glad that's done!
Dinner was also interesting... a good way to handle leftovers or..... whatever... baked tortilla, layered in quinoa and bean mixture, shredded chicken, Pico Pica sauce, cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. Added the rest of the "Halloween" corn chips... and voilá!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
