Well Thanksgiving is over and we did our part in eating to much. Had a very nice Thanksgiving. We were invited to my sons home this year and I really enjoyed being able to bring something instead of cooking it all. It gave me a chance to try some new recipes. The yam recipe I wanted to try was soooo good and I will be posting it.
Here it is:
However I did make it with Yams.

I spent the last couple of days putting away things so I can start bringing out my Christmas decorations. This will be our last Christmas in this house . We sold our house and will be moving in the spring. It is very bitter sweet for me. I want to move but it is hard to leave someplace you have lived in for 30 years. It will be quite an adventure. I don't like being away from my THINGS , so that will be the hardest for me. I am a very homey person and I don't like being unsettled. So I sure hope we aren't for very long.
They have been perdicting snow here for 2 days but so far nothing. I would love to see a little snow but we live in kind of a banana belt and very seldom get any. While everyone around us does. I LOVE SNOW.
