I can really feel myself getting back into the cooking. I am debating getting a better webcam and making some videos. I'll probably test them out on YouTube first just to see if they get any response, but a few people have asked. Onto this week's food creations: Thursday (12/3) - We just did leftovers … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 37
Our post Thanksgiving week did not involve the usual "how to use leftovers in new dishes" menu that it usually does since I tailored our meal to be for just the husband and me. I will admit that I missed the usual chicken or turkey salad the next day. We did have a bit of … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 36
So after much debate on how to handle pandemic style Thanksgiving, I decided the husband and I would have our own little Thanksgiving feast. He suggested we do a virtual online pop-in for any friends and family who wanted to join. We set up a Google meet session to run from 4pm-8pm. We set up … Continue reading Thanksgiving Dinner Part 2 – the Main Event
I feel like I'm tired of saying "well, we are still here," but we are. The week before Thanksgiving normally involves a lot of shopping and a lot of planning for me. There is also some making ahead of dishes that can be. I guess this year was easier in that respect. I'll post a … Continue reading Quarantine Week 35
Since we were not able to have an in-person celebration for Thanksgiving this year, I prepare a meal for my lovely eldest and her roommates.

But yes, you can … Continue reading Cooking with Alcohol
It's 4:09 am, and I can't sleep, so I'm thinking about Thanksgiving. This is normally my favorite day of the year. I make the biggest meal of the year. I invited everyone to my house. That sounds like an exaggeration, but last year, we had our immediate family with me, my husband and our three … Continue reading Thanksgiving Planning 2020
The numbers keep getting worse and our Governor, Mayor and health officials are talking about a full shutdown again. For us, this means very little for our daily lives, as my husband and I have been pretty locked down since March. Some say I'm living in fear. They are right. I am terrified of this … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 34
A few days a week we are vegetarian when we have our youngest daughter. Other days we are total carnivores. Some meals are a combination.
So, our numbers are climbing. The election is still on-going, but it definitely looks like Biden is going to be our next president. I am so hopeful that he will be able to start healing some of the damage done by the last four years. Yes, I made a political statement there. If you disagree … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 32
