I had hoped to have some sewing to show but I've been a turkey/tryptophan slug and have barely seen the sewing room. The turkey is almost gone now. The turkey leftovers soup above is for dinner tonight with this bread, which used up the leftover mashed potatoes. I threw in some onion flakes and dill too and it is yummy stuff with a wonderful crust (see all those crumbs!). The rest of Thursday's leftovers are nearly gone too. Three big males in the house plus three dogs means a 23 lb. turkey and side dishes don't last as long as I thought they might. I should know better.

I haven't left the house since Wednesday night. The thought of hoards of people shopping yesterday didn't interest me in the least. I'd rather pay full price than to deal with that mess.

The Godfather I/II remix is on the tube right now and I always glue myself to the TV when it is. I don't know why, since we have the DVDs. It's just one of those things. But I think I'll move up to the sewing room and turn it on there and maybe make some progress on something. My replacement brown denim arrived Wednesday and it's been prewashed so what I really need to do is rip out the wadder back legs from the jeans I started a few weeks ago. We'll see. That tryptophan is some powerful stuff. ;-)

Hopefully the next time I post I'll have something other than another food photo.


  1. I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I'm with you - I'm not into the hoards of people shopping experience whatsoever. Enjoy the family and the doggies.

  2. ditto everything that Claire said. I need to get on the Cmas sewing but I sit here computer playing, akkk and I have to mail all my gifts. mumble mumble damn day job.

  3. Why is that the leftovers never last as long as you think they will? An 11 lb ham for 3 people - well I did take half to my mom's but still why is there only enough left to make soup with?

    Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
