Doctor, Doctor

A long, long time ago, my cousin Henry asked me to make him Minced Meat pie. Who in their right mind EATS minced meat pie?! I had never seen one, made one, heard of anyone eat one. Whatever. He asked, and by golly, he shall receive!


Those who are lucky enough to host Thanksgiving dinner enjoy the benefits of leftovers. Those of us who show up with tupperware are just as fortunate. This year, I left the plastic containers at home, and missed out on days upon days of creativity of turning disgarded turkey into a culinary wonder.

Right now, I am on the countdown to my first ever cookie sale.  I have 3 days.  I have baked so much, and as of this moment, I am ready for the preparation of presentation.  Today, I shopped for decorations and trays.  Tomorrow, my friend Tina will be over to mock up the sales table.

Thy Daily Bread

Sometimes you just have to go against the grain. When it comes to bread, we enjoy Ezekiel for breakfast, toasted with pbj. Lunch would be the sandwich rolls that take lunchmeat to the hoagie level, and dinner is piping hot fresh "good bread".
