The turkey is in the brine! Frozen and thawing. Im planning on cooking it Wed so its not hogging oven time from other dishes. I hope its thawed by then. I read its how Alton brines his birds, so here’s to hoping it works for me too.
I so scored today. Got a 23lb bird (Butterball as per request), and got enough groceries for another bird for free (store brand), 16lb. Both will be cooked this week and with luck I wont have to cook meat for a while.
Soups, casseroles and sandwiches galore!
While searching for my Holiday recipes I found the Egg Nog bread and pumpkin cookie recipes. I made sure I got the items needed to make those this week – my house is going to smell so good!
I have stitch updates – actual pictures!!
Mother Maya – I have a goal for Nov, to see how much I can complete the box motif. It holds a monkey and shouldnt (famous last word) be too complicated to finish. I am thankful the border lined up on the first try. Maybe its making up for the trouble the eagle motif caused?
Quaker Stocking – Not too much added but a finished motif (dk green on lower right) and a couple letters this week (E & F).
I also worked on LOTR Map but only added a length of thread so no pic.
Bit by bit and projects will be completed.
Until tomorrow – Happy stitching :o)
