November is just SUCH a busy month with work and stuffs. I just don't have space in my head to come up with the bloggies on the fly and stuff. So, neglect neglect neglect. Poor thing.
Everyone ready for Thanksgiving???? :)
I've actually closed the shop for a few days so I can have enough time to clean the house a bit and get my Thanksgiving cook on without having to sneak downstairs for a few hours here and there to finish up orders. I am definitely looking forward to chowing down - not gonna lie. I only make my grandmother's sausage stuffing once a year so there is no holding back and no guilt about it either! I don't like pie and am going with a heap of green veggies too (sauteed green beans/roasted broccoli/kale) so it's all balanced out........right??
I don't really like turkey and end up doing it different every year, thinking that ONE of these years I will magically like the stuff. (Hasn't happened yet. Aside from turkey soup, it's just NOT my thing.) This year's recipe is America's Test Kitchen Butterflied Turkey.........minus the glaze they've got going there. (I think I'm going to do a dry rub and/or a herb-infused butter under the skin instead.) I just like the visuals of a spatchcocked bird. And bonus, the word SPATCHCOCK is fun to say. Spatchcock spatchcock spatchcock. Never gets old really. If it turns out to be a disaster, well, that's what gravy is for.
Just a few random bits and bobs from this month..........
This stuff? Pretty darn good, surprisingly! So long as you don't smell the bag before you brew it. (It smells kinda funky before brewing, to be honest.) But hot and with a shot of sugar free vanilla syrup? SO SO GOOD. My go-to tea every day for the last week. I've totally ignored my snooty snotty Adagio loose teas, which is saying a lot because I LOVE my snooty snotty Adagio loose teas!
Hello, flannel sheet time has arrived! One of the best things about winter for me, mostly because I don't like winter. lol I got that fuzzy Oscar the Grouch-like 'hotel' blanket for cheap! cheap! at a Home Goods store last week and paired together with the flannel sheets............it's ridiculously hard to leave that toasty bed in the morning. Oh_so_soft_and_lovely. *swooooooon*
I'm on a mission to finish mittens! This project is dogging me like WOAH. It's been like pulling teeth doing a little bit each day but I'm getting there......slowly. I don't want to start anything new until this project is done, considering it's been dragging out since September.
I should have a big whopping giveaway very soon, probably Monday, so look for that.
Hope everyone has a great holiday or, if you're not celebrating, a great weekend!! :)
