Hello Sunshine! {updated with links}

It's Thanksgiving Eve. We have had several days of chilly and rainy. I'm so thankful this morning for the sunshine pouring in my windows. The temp is still chilly, but at least I'm not getting wet when I venture outside. The kids and I are headed to the grocery store. I'm crazy that way. It's a mad house the day before Thanksgiving. I know...I was there last year. Anyway, I need some herbs for the turkey and some ingredients for a pie we have not yet chosen.

So, what's on your menu for tomorrow? I'm responsible for the turkey and deviled eggs and
Cinnamon Apple Cranberry and the spinach and artichoke dip I've been making for over a decade now! (Wow, time flies!) YUM-O! I'll update later with recipes, and give you the recipe for the delicioso shrimp burgers I made for dinner last night. Think fried shrimp in a bun but not a po-boy. They were gooood!

Update: the turkey was eh...not so great. I wish it would've been a little more moist. Oh well, I'll try again. The Cinnamon Apple Cranberry was goooood! I will keep this recipe fo-sho! Carleigh was a doll and helped me with the deviled eggs. Don't you wish there was an easy way to peel those hard boiled eggs?! There isn't. I've tried everything...even the egg peeler thingy off the TV. Anyway, Carleigh commented on how I make the deviled eggs. She said, "Is this one of those recipes you just guesstimate?" Yes, yes it is. I put the yolks in a bowl and break them up with a fork. Then I add a few tablespoons of mayo, some salt and pepper, a few dashes of dill weed, a little marjoram, a little (maybe a teaspoon) dry or wet mustard, and mix with a hand mixer. If I decide it needs something upon tasting it, I add some more of whatever it needs. I then add the mixture to a large baggie and clip one of the ends to make a pastry-type bag and pipe them into the egg whites. It's so much easier and prettier that way. I saw a recipe the other day for deviled eggs with a kick. Can't wait to try them. If you get to it before I do, let me know how they turned out...Spicy Sriracha Deviled Eggs.

Here's a glimpse of fall around our house...and a little cutie at her Thanksgiving lunch at school a couple of weeks ago.
