ICE!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
This is what we woke up to on Thanksgiving Day.   ICE!!!!!!!   It is far too  early to have ice in Oklahoma.  BUT we did.   It was beautiful, and I caught it just as the sun was coming through the trees in the back field. The picture does not do it justice.  It is Friday morning now and it is still there!  Temps are going to go back into the 50's today so it will all go away, but it was just a beautiful sight on Thanksgiving morning.

We had TG over at my son's house yesterday and I took my camera but never took it out of my purse!  I am so ticked off!  BUT Christmas is coming and I will take pictures then.  

PE and Alpha were there me and Dennis and Chris.  We have such a fun day and great food. My son is getting to be quite the little chef!  After we ate we watched a couple of movie on his BIG screen TV and laughed and talked and yes of course took a little nap.  Chris was headed to Lawton to be with his main squeeze later that night so we headed over to our house for coffee and cake and just to sit and visit.  I wish you could know my brother PE .......HE is just a hoot and he and my husband get along so very well.........  We laughed and laughed and laughed.  Me and Alpha just look at each other as those two get on a roll. 


We did not share stories of Mom and Dad this year as I think they knew I was not able to do that so it was loudly avoided.  
They stayed late and after too much coffee and more desert, we divvied up all the food and everyone went home happy. They are headed out this morning southwestern Oklahoma to have TG with her siblings.  She has a big family and every year I am always very envious of her. She has two sisters that go and do a lot together and four brothers.

I then talked to my other brother Larry. He wished us a happy TG.  His wife's family was there but he wanted to wish us a Happy TG..   Me and Dennis are headed over there sometime this week.  She is the SIL that is getting all the quilting books. It has been about a month since we have seen them so we are anxious to get over there.  
It was a wonderful day and having it over at Chris' house was a good idea.  

I am looking forward to Christmas. We are going to have our Christmas the day after to accommodate for a couple of other family members to be here.  It will be here, so I need to spend this next few weeks doing a little more decorating.  

I will be doing all the cooking as I have planned something so very different. I am going to cook an English meal with roasted leg of lamb and Yorkshire pudding with roasted potatoes and carrots with brussel sprouts!!!!!!  Followed with English trifle pudding an maybe black pudding if I can figure out how to make that.  I have been promising Chris and my brother and husband to fix an English meal like I used to and I think that Christmas will be a good time to do that!  Makes me hungry to even type it!  I promise to take pictures! 

I promise........  Some of you might know that I spent many years in different countries and England was one of them. I lived there 3 year from 1965-1968. I lived in a town called Newmarket and learned how to live "English" I loved it!  Soooooooooooo  it will be English cuisine this Christmas. It will be fun! 
Well time for me to do some work here, my shop is full of empty totes from all the Christmas decor and I need to clear them out so I can work on some dolls and Christmas gifts planned for a few folks.......

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you do........We are NOT shoppers after TG......... We stay home and let the rest of the world fight that traffic!

Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

Happy Thanksgiving girls.......... I am cooking today. Turkey and ham and my best dressing in the world. I could not seem to get past having Thanksgiving here so we are headed over to my sons' house. My brother PE and wife Alpha will meet us there.


I have decorated the house and everything looks great but my precious son and husband suggested that we go somewhere else this year. I think it is a good idea.


Sending Thanksgiving wishes to each and every one of you and may we always remember to be thankful for the good things that the Father God has provided. Pray for our nation.......


I Thessalonians 5:18 "In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

ATTENTION ALL QUILTERS!

Do you quilt? Ok..... Then do I have a deal for you.   I am getting rid of ALL my Quilters Magazines.  I was going to put them on Etsy but I was going to give them away free... So I thought, why pay to list them when I have a blog!  

These are very nice, good condition Quilters Magazines.   I have many! I am going to give them away, 10 at a time because that is all that will fit into a Flat Rate Mailing Envelope.  All I ask is that you pay for the shipping. The flat rate charge is $4.75.  

I have not counted my magazines but I am sure that I have close 100 of them.  If you would like all of them just let me know and I will box them up and see what the media mail will be.   

I thought that I would like to learn to quilt but I am not..  Some of the magazines were given to me by my MIL who is now gone and then a subscription in 2003- 2008,  So some of them are newer and some are a bit older but all in great condition.   

So the first one to want this group just leave a message.  I will be posting picture of others soon. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE PICTURE YOU ARE LOOKING AT IS JUST A STOCK PICTURE. You may or may not get the ones in the picture.  
If you do not quilt but know someone that does. Tell them to come and see.


UPDATE.................   ALL THE QUILTING BOOKS ARE GONE. I AM GIVING THEM TO MY SWEET SISTER IN LAW. WHO KNEW SHE WOULD WANT THEM.......  SOOOOOOO THEY HAVE FOUND A GOOD HOME......

105 Degrees

Good morning girls!   It has been so long AGAIN since I was here to visit and share.!!  I so miss visiting and sharing with you girls!   105 Degrees!  NO NO not the weather, a new restaurant that me and my sweet husband found in OKC on Tuesday.............   I have seen it in the paper and read about it on line but we finally got up there and had lunch. It was WONDERFUL.  

As some of you might know I have been going "raw" for sometime now and I do good and then do bad and then do good and then do bad. You know the routine.  I was so excited to go and eat someone else's raw food to see if I was even remotely close to the way it is supposed to taste.  I can tell you I have  MISSED the mark on taste and my efforts are renewed.   My goodness what a treat to the taste buds and it was every bite RAW.  

While we were waiting for our meal I was busy looking around the room at all the wonderful things that others were having. I was like a kid in a candy store.  I was even bold enough (fancy that) to ask the two pretty little twins sitting next to us what they had in front of them.   Lasagna !  OMG.........  it looked wonderful and that was what I had ordered........  I was now ready to dig into one of my own.  

I actually took pictures!  

Now this one is my sweets dinner. He ordered Mediterranean Wraps,, Swiss Chard, Zucchini, Kalamata Olives, Sweet Red Pepper.  On the side was his hummus (white stuff) made from Macadamia  nuts, olive oil and touch of paprika. YUM!!!!!!!!!   The other little dish is Tabouleh,  Now this was VERY tasty.  Made with sesame seeds, finally chopped tomatoes and finely chopped spinach.  It had olive oil and something else that my palate just could not figure out. BUT I bet I figure it out.  You dip your wrap in the sour cream (macadamia nuts) and eat it with the Tabouleh. It is kind of hard to see the wraps but there were three of them.


Now this one was mine. OMG!!!  Heirloom Tomato Lasagna, Macadamia Ricotta, Spinach, Pesto, Sun Dried Tomato Marinara. I took this with my phone so I did not get a good picture of the layers.. so the next picture is a stock picture from their web site... It gives you a much better view of what each layer looked like.

 Mine looked just like that but the spinach was left whole whereas this one is chopped.  Now let me tell you about the layers. Bottom layer was very very very thin slices of zucchini squash and yellow squash. Now when I tell you it is thin I mean it is thin. On top of that is a very nice thin (not as thin as the squash) slice of  Heirloom tomato. on top of that was a ample portion of  the  Macadamia Ricotta. It is cheese made from macadamia nuts with other spices. Then again a layer of raw spinach with a ample layer of the Sun Dried Tomato Marinara.  Now that stuff is tasty! Then comes another layer with the tomato, spinach and then the basil pesto! OMG.......Taste buds are dancing now!  And then so goes the layers and then drizzled with the Olive Oil and sliced tomato on top and sprinkled with a bit more of the Macadamia Ricotta cheese. It was a lot of food and after my sweet finished his meal he helped me with mine!   YUM YUM............  I cannot tell you how all those flavors just exploded in your mouth.  

While waiting on our meal I tried to take some pictures of the kitchen. It was wide open and you could sit and watch them build your dinner or other dinners. We kept watching and saying "what is that" .......  They were wonderful to watch and you did not hear any noise at all from behind that counter. A well oiled machine working together to create the most wonderful healthy food. 

 The front of the building was solid glass. It was an incredible building just one year old and made from solid black iron beams and looked to be very 21 century.  The inside was purple with white and every thing was spotless and tidy. The servers were very attentive and knew the menu as to make recommendations if needed.
 Right next door to the restaurant is a teaching center where they have classes on raw food. They have week long classes for those that are wanting to be chefs and daily classes for those just wanting to learn a bit more about raw food.  Each class centers around a certain topic. The blue represents the week long classes and the green represents the one time day classes.  Would that be fun or what! Click to read if you want... 

We have promised ourselves to go back once a month and taste everything on the menu...........  AND to top off our experience we splurged and got dessert! 
Blood orange cheese cake!  OOPS !!!  Got so excited about eating it forgot to take a picture!  But yum yum. Cheese cake so smooth you would never know it was cashews, almond milk and drizzled with juice and sections of a blood orange.. topped with pieces of pistachio nuts. Need I say more. 



What a wonderful day it was and by the expression on my sweets face no more words need  be said.
