Happy Thanksgiving

The time whisks on by,

 just w h o o s h e s doesn't it.

I am going to use lots of recipes from Food Network this year, specifically here.  I don't think I can copy and paste any better than you just taking a hop over and they're all my favorites!  "Clair's Thanksgiving" has some great stuff that I'm going to try.

I will not be posting before turkey day, so I am wishing you lots of gobble gobbles, a huge Thanksgiving hug and blessings from above.

Weekends are always SUPER busy around here. They are blinks. I go to sleep on Friday night, and Sunday night rolls around in the blink of an eye. Where did the time go? That happens more and more often it seems. Blink (rhymes with jinx) and it will be Friday again and you will find me scratching my head, just-a wonderin...where did the week go.

Well here's something that I can't believe I'm doing... thinking about Christmas, and looking at all the lovelies that are out there. Wouldn't you just love a table or two staged with a few of these items?
Yes, I do find them somewhat inspiring, as in 'I could make that kind' of inspiring. Just look at the precious little deer above, and the wreath accent on the door.
and this little guy looks just like a goat!! Maybe there is such a thing as a Christmas goat, I admit I haven't heard of the like, but I do lead a cloistered life.

And this goofy reindeer really got my attention, I just love this little guy.
all these little pretties are found at World Market.

I just love pepperment bark. It is the perfect finishing touch after a big holiday meal.

This is the recipe I am going to try:

1 pound white chocolate chips
1/2 cup peppermint candy, finely crushed

Preheat oven to 250. Line a 9x13 pan with foil, letting it hang over the sides. Spray foil. Pour the chocolate chips and crunched pepperment candy 'sugar' in an even layer on the foil. Place in oven for 5 minutes or until almost melted. Remove from oven, smooth with an offset spatula or knife. Place in refrigerator until cold and firm, about 20 minutes.

SERIOUSLY simple! I love white chocolate and pepperment, no dark chocolate in this one.

Wishing you lots of sweetness this week!

PS, here's a little sweetness you may have over looked on etsy...
Who knew such things even existed?
