Wow what a great weekend!! I was busy from start to finish.   I was lucky to be invited to an old fashioned hoe down Friday, featuring a live square dance band and caller, a hay ride, bon fire and fabulous turkey dinner with all the trimmings. It was so delightful in every way.


Saturday was my Creative Hands Party with friends. We enjoyed the cake contest and so did our guests. It was a huge hit. It was a people's choice contest and our guests really got into the voting process. Congrats to all of our contestants. Hilda's Pound Cake won by 3 votes, so it was a very close contest. Our lucky winner from the guest book sign ins also won a nice gift from our artisans. Jennifer Tragash was our winning guest.


Our next party is May 6th in honor of Mothers Day. We will have an appetizer recipe contest this time for our award.


Sunday I was busy teaching again, so today I get a much needed day at home to prepare for the holiday week ahead. I will post Today - Wednesday this week and wish you all a marvelous day of Thanksgiving.




Quote of the Day- 



Recipe of the Day


Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon

Roasting a whole chicken is pretty simple to do, just season it, put it in the oven and walk away. As long as you have a thermometer you can't go wrong. The combination of rosemary and lemon has a wonderful Mediterranean flavor. Serve this with roasted vegetables. You can use the leftover chicken bones to make a wonderful stock.
