Happy Holidays!

Just stopping in to wish everyone a happy happy Thanksgiving!  I'm really in the holiday spirit this year and on Saturday, I was in the mood to really get down in the kitchen.  So that night, I took the time to prepare everything: I cleaned the kale and collards, peeled, cut and mixed the sweet potatoes with all it's ingredients, cut up all my onions and celery for the dressing, cleaned and brined the chicken and divided my cheeses for the macaroni.  Sunday at noon, all I had to do was throw everything together and straight into the oven/roaster.  Sunday was definitely a day of relaxation and good food.

The two Chiefs particularly enjoyed!


I also made some cinnamon buns from scratch and they were a success except for i have to learn the shaping better. Will discuss in another post!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  1. Here's hoping you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Don't eat to much. I am doing the 30 Day Shred. I'm going to try to get the book by Dr. Ian next week.
