Cookbooks


For Halloween, last night, many kids showed up at our house even if it was raining. Some had cute costumes. My daughter had carved pumpkins for our front porch. They were really nice.

It’s already November and I am starting to think about Christmas, decorations, food, and gifts. I like this time of the year.  I was at Costco this week and enjoyed walking the isle with all the decorations.

Food plays a big role during the holiday season in our home. We like to eat what my grandmas were cooking and baking for their family. We will be making tourtières, chicken pot pies and many desserts.

  20. I love turducken, so yummy. For many years it has been a Christmas tradition in my family to have Christmas Morning Wifesaver, Land of Nod cinnamon buns (both recipes from The Best of Bridge), and fresh fruit salad for Christmas morning brunch. I really look forward to this holiday meal even though it isn't labor intensive. I even prefer it over my big Christmas dinner.
