For those in the USA I want to say Happy Thankgiving. This picture is sort of like me today. I'm cooking a full dinner including turkey, dressing (with italian sausage and mushrooms), riced potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes (with crushed pineappld brown sugar and marshmallows), green bean casserole. And there's pumpkin pie for dessert. I cheated this year and got the pie from Costco. Their pies are way bigger than any pans I have, so there will be lots of leftover pie.
Our eldest daughter is bring the rolls and driving in from the Sierra mountain foothills. It will just be the 3 of us and it will be a casual and leisurely afternoon dinner.
If you one of the readers of my recipe blog (link on the right) then your next visit will make you happy. I plan on having a photoshoot of our dinner and posting it tonight or in the morning to the recipe blog. And maybe some recipes too!
I've sort of lost my blogging groove the past couple months due to a lot of things, but I plan to be playing catch up very soon-maybe this weekend - so don't give up on me yet, okay? I've lots to show because the one thing that has kept me sane recently is my stitching, crocheting and knitting!
A lot of you know me as a fiber artist of sorts. I have been teaching crazy quilting and embroidery for years now, but I also love good food. I have collected and experimented with recipes for over 45 years. I have even edited a cookbook for our local garden club. I also am happy to say that I own my Mum's handwritten recipe book which contains recipes from my grandmother and recipes Mum collected since she and my Dad wed in 1925. When I was searching for a name for my recipe blog where I will be sharing a lot of Mum's recipes this blog name just popped into my head. When I was a child I used to hear ladies at church functions like weddings, potlucks & picnics ask "who is that little girl sitting over there all by herself?" Someone else would always answer "Oh, that's Lulu's Girl; she is very shy!" Some of you know that I've overcome the shyness, but, believe me, it took a very long time!
