So . . . How'd it Go?

Just a quick post to let you know that everyone here survived the holiday weekend–I’ve got to finish page proofs today–so this is a quickie blog. Pics and more to follow. We were down in Seaside again, like we did last year, and yes, DH cooked. He cooked off and on all day and after we ate the entire meal in less than fifteen minutes, he looked over at me, shook his head, and said, “That is way too much work for one meal.”

Ya think?

More tomorrow–oh, and contest winners tomorrow.  How was everyone else’s weekend? Bargains found? Turkey disasters? (Ours was horrible–chewy and dry. I suggested brining and basting, but what do I know?!)  Best pie? Christmas lights up?

    I’m sitting here giggling because I was in Cannon Beach for the weekend, and in fact when into Seaside for dessert on Friday night. Glad you had fun!

    Thanksgiving was okay. I loved the stuffing. It’s made with hamburger adn raisins and is yummy.

    I put out the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. I don’t have too many decorations, but it’s nice to have the house in the holiday spirit.

    Looking forward to seeing the contest winners. Hopefully I’ll be one of them. 😉

    I was there Friday night as well–with all the hordes of people for the parade! Wasn’t that a delight? I do love it down there for Thanksgiving and starting the Christmas season by the ocean. The small town charm just warms my heart over the piped in music and mall atmosphere of home.

    Thanksgiving was good. We had tacos. VERY easy.

    I can’t wait for Christmas, because that’s the next chance for turkey — we never have enough leftovers! I love leftovers, but it’s barely left over after Thanksgiving! LOL

    Parade? There was a parade? Dang! Don’t know how we missed that.
    It was a perfect way to move into this time of year. Nothing like a walk on the beach on a foggy day, all bundled up.

    Thanksgiving was blissfully uneventful. Delicious stuffed turkey breast and the best fixins’ anyone could want. And I didn’t have to cook a bit of it.

    No parades save the one we saw on TV in the AM. Santa’s arrival was met with squeals of delight from my youngest. Football ruled the day…again.

    Two-word solution to dry turkey…turkey bag. Not kidding. I have never had a dry turkey ever since using the bags, and the turkey cooks in about 3-4 hours. Delish!

    Jess decorated on Friday and the house is beautiful. I wrote all weekend and finished my book. Yay!
