Today I hit the books, the "Crabby Cabbie" books that is. It is the third quarter and I need to get it done and out of the way before the 15th of September. I also had a couple of phone calls to make this morning. Really just a couple of phone calls takes up more time then one can afford some days, but some times they can not be avoided when it comes to business or enquiries.
After lunch I got the Turkey washed and ready for in the oven, putting it in to roast by 2 pm. I also got the potatoes and beets ready at the same time, each cleaned and in a pot of water ready to go.
I had invited my sister, Jeanne, and her husband, Cecil, for Turkey Dinner, however they could not make it. As it was her daughter, Jo-Anne, had to bring me up some paperwork to look after on their behalf, so she stayed to have dinner with us. It was a nice visit too.
With Chicken Stock made yesterday, and Turkey Stock today, we will be in good shape for a little while waiting for the colder weather to set in. YUM YUM YUM, thinking of everything you can use homemade stock with.
Rob and I have both been cutting back on fat intake and portions, so this evening's Turkey Dinner did not include dressing or gravy. I will make with those two "extras" on those special occasion meals, not just for an every day meal. It is tough to cut back on how you are used to cooking and/or eating, but you have to start somewhere/somehow.
Rob and I have been watching, from the start, this Season's The "Voice". It starts at 8 pm, so I am going to get the dishes done up so I can curl up to watch it with him tonight.
On that note, I will call this a wrap, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
