When dropping around to Aunties and Uncles, not only is Auntie still recovering, Uncle has been ill with a fever just breaking today. Let me "tell the World", drop of the Cake and run !!!! I don't want to be SICK !
I was so happy when we stopped in at the Port Elgin's Giant Tiger store, as they had the 14 oz cans of Pumpkin Puree for $1.00 per can (difficult to find at any other time of Year). This smaller size sure beats opening a huge 28 oz can for a recipe, then finding the remains spoiled a week or two later in the fridge.
Making our way homeward bound, my friend sent me a text letting me know Foodland had their Fresh Turkeys on for 1/2 price today, would I like her to pick us up a couple? YES please, had been my answer. Fresh Turkey for 99 cents a pound, you can't even buy a chicken for less then $1.99 a pound on sale anymore !!!
Rob busied himself outside getting some truck tires ready for my brother, they had wheeled and dealed on, while I got busy in the kitchen with what else other then more TOMATOES !!! Ha...surprise !!!
I had such a wonderful compliment today. I had not only sent along a piece of cake with my Niece, Stacey, yesterday, I had also given her a Pint jar of my Black Bean & Corn Salsa. She sent me a message today thanking me, telling me how good it was and how good my cooking is,could I please send her the recipe for the Salsa. Compliments do not come any better then that one. That was the first one today. The second came from Rob when he said to me, "I love this stuff", after having Salsa and crackers for a snack; can't get a better compliment then that either. I was feeling pretty good about both compliments !
Oh yes, almost forgot, when my brother Al stopped over, he brought his grandson, Riley, my Great Nephew, along. Riley came in the house to bring two dinky cars he wanted to leave for Aiden (our grandson). I treated him to a huge piece of Pumpkin Loaf. He was quick to respond with, "this is really good."
Three compliments in one day !!! What a great Thanksgiving Day this was for me ..... and then some !
Unplanned, but a most wonderful Turkey Day it was ! Sometimes those unplanned events can turn out to be some of the best.
A busy day, however one full of people and things to be thankful for .... and really thankful for Rob's Cousin Joyce for sending me this email today:
Please don't forget ...
