Do you have leftover stuffing from your Thanksgiving turkey? Here is a great recipe for "stuffing muffins"....
 

Football yesterday...
Let me say I was DISGUSTED at the Lambs players who came out on the field with their arms up in "solidarity" with the asinine rioters and protesters in Ferguson! Now POLITICS has entered into football????? I was going to say something nice about the Lambs beating the Raiders, but not now!

Dude cracks me up.. he loves laying on 'his' couch.. and watching out the door...

Hey mom, why are you taking my picture???

 
Yesterday I decided to make gravy that I didn't make when I cooked the turkey. Also made some stuffing with lots of celery and shallots. A roux is made with butter and flour... turkey broth is added and whisked til smooth. I also added in some cream, garlic salt, sea salt, and pepper. Thick Southern-style!

I added the diced celery and shallots to the stuffing after sauteing them in butter along with turkey broth.

Cut up tomatoes with Tzatziki, cut up turkey and stuffing with gravy. OINK OINK OINK!!!!!!
 
The doe and her offspring were up in the pasture and Bruiser was watching....


 
After that disappointing loss for my Patriots I watches a couple Hallmark movies with a roaring fire in the wood stove.
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Sorry about your Pats losing.
I was disgusted to hear those people came out on the field in sympathy with the idiots in Ferguson!! I am so ticked at all those people who couldn't care less about what the evidence proved! DISGUSTING!!!

Loved the looks of those stuffing muffins. Will make those sometime. Your gravy sure did set my mouth to watering!
Kevin called Eric on Thanksgiving Day to get the recipe and instructions for making his fabulous gravy. Kev made it and they all loved it.

YAAAA for all the rain we got yesterday and last night! I am thanking the Lord that November has passed with all it's wind and no fires for us.

I am so amazed you got that much rain. Boy do you need it too. L said 1.75" ... that is a LOT!!!! xo

We're expecting a deluge today and tomorrow. At least as much as that last storm.

This is one of 2 thoughtful responses to Ferguson which have brought tears to my eyes. I wish this got more playtime.

It didn't bring tears to my eyes, but reading his thoughts gives me an insight to a very intelligent caring person. He's right about all his comments. Judging a book by it's cover has always been wrong.
