Our House ~ Stuffing Muffins ~ Football Rant ~ Dude ~ Turkey/Stuffing/Gravy ~ Deer ~ Bruiser

Good 39º cloudy 10º warmer than yesterday 1st day of December morning.
Jerry and I bought this house on this date in 1997. Wow.
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!

Football tonight....

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.
