Cooking Up a Storm

I was up at 5:30 am today, as I babysat the little munchkin next door for an hour.. At 8 am, we went out for buttermilk pancakes and lots of coffee, and of course bacon. When we came home, I was in a cooking mood, you know the feeling. I first made almond-orange biscotti, with orange-flavoured liquor; plus I made a delicious turkey, carrots, turnip, bok choy and soba noodles..I love throwing unusual goodies into the pot. I really don't like soup much; but my hubby loves it and as he has been working alot of ot and has diabetes, the soup works as a good lunch. When he came into the kitchen area and saw the liquor on the counter, he asked if I had put it int he soup...LOL...maybe next time..I have made the best beef stew with tequila, hubby doesn't like his booze being used that way !!!! Well better go and see what other mess I can create in the kitchen, oh wait, I have to find the counters and sink first !!!

Take care and have a great day with the family/friends..

I have decided to complete another change on the blog..What do you think? I love changing colours, pictures and backgrounds.

Tuesday is December 1st and I am feeling the season this year.I have been making Christmas cards,buying little gifts and actually looking forward to Christmas.

Many people are sad during this season due to depression, finances, or remembering things lost over the years. I have been trying to make small changes in my life and reaching out to others less fortunate makes me feel that is the way for me.

Take care friends and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been so fortunate in making new Blogging friends!!!
