GIVING THANKS PART 13

Oh, I am such a slacker!!! I should have done this post days ago. But did I??? Noooooo!

I participated in the Harvest Swap with Carrie and Monica. My Swap partner was Kris. Go over and see what I sent her. Wait!! Not yet!! Look at what she sent me first, please.
Okay~there were two candles in my box but I already burned one:~) And I had to hold off on using the mini muffin cups until I took the picture. AND~~the girls, Mike, and I watched the entire Martha Stewart DVD last night.

People, I am talking TWO HUNDRED AND ONE MINUTES. We kept ohhhing and ahhing over everything she made. I am telling you I wanted to run down to the turkey farm and get a fresh bird, bring that thing home and do all sorts of stuff to it.

I could almost taste the pumpkin souffle. We were drooling over the garlic mashed potatoes and the sweet potato pie. Even my "I never want a vegetable to touch my lips" daughter was entranced by the Cauliflower with Brown Butter and Roasted Hazelnuts. (that said daughter would be Shelby, by the way:~).

We learned how to make cornhusk dolls and pinecone turkeys. We learned how cranberries are harvested and how to make edible centerpieces.

Ohh I could go on and on. But I think you get the picture. We were entranced by the whole thing. We sat snuggled up on the couch wallowing in domestic bliss. It was wonderful.

Because, ya'll, even though my hubby and I sat there wondering which segments were before or after jail~~Martha rocked it at our house last night.

Thank you, Kris and have a great day!
