Thanksgiving morning has started off nice & lazy…Okay, I have washed some dishes, and I’m debating on what ingredients I’m going to leave out for whatever bread I end up making. I’m trying to decide between sweet potato biscuits, or regular dinner rolls. I think I’m going to go with the biscuits, just because they’re a little different. Abby’s going to venture out to her parents’ so I don’t have to worry that I might run out of food or anything. It’s nicer than they predicted. Cold as all get-out, but it’s actually sunny, and apparently not too slippery (Jay had to go into work for about an hour this morning).
I probably should’ve fluffed it up a bit before I put it outside, but I was just so excited to hang it up (and it really is chilly out)! My only complaint is that we don’t have an outdoor plug close enough that I can plug in the lights on it. Although if I hung it actually ON the house itself, I would be able to plug it in then. But I bought a door hanger for it, so that’s what I’m going with this year. Maybe next year I’ll mix it up a bit.
While Jay was at work, I made some oatmeal for the bambino & I. I almost cleaned out my jar of Dark Chocolate Spread eating pancakes the other night, so I caved into a blogging trend and made some OIAJ (oatmeal in a jar, for those people like me who had no idea what the hell that meant the first time reading it!). I have to say that I was unimpressed by it.
No matter. I can say that I tried it, and I don’t honestly see what all the fuss is about. I’m just not that cool, I guess!
The bambino was being a bit of a stinker this morning, and tried to swipe some pumpkin pie while the oatmeal was cooking:
Funny, he did the same thing when I set out the tiramisu at my birthday party. No matter. Had they opted to come here, I think Abby & Donavon would’ve found it as amusing as my sister Kendra did when I told her about it! I should take it as a compliment that he likes my cooking so much he just wants to grab handfuls and shove ’em in his mouth!
And with that, I suppose I should go wash a few more dishes and go ahead and make those sweet potato biscuits. I also have to figure out some lunch for tomorrow, although I figure I’ll just take some leftovers in my fun new lunchbox!
