We awoke this morning to a cold 17ºF here in south-central Ohio. A little colder than normal for this time of year! Brrrrr
I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving, my first one without mom. I miss her so much. She was in a nursing home but I was still able to visit her. She wasn't able to speak for the last 3+ years and I'm not sure if she knew me or not but she knew someone was there. Alzheimer's is so devastating.
Enough of that for right now or I will be in tears. Thanksgiving will be a quiet day just Kevin and I as we have no other family near. I do have a cousin in southern KY. but that is too far to visit. I would love to move there, Kentucky and Tennessee are 2 of my favorite states.
I posted a recipe today for my great-grandmothers cream puffs.....they are soooo good. I hope you enjoy them if you try the recipe! I hope to try and post a recipe a day if I can decipher her writing. The recipes are written in pencil and a lot of them have faded, torn or are smudged. Her cookbook has been around for many years and I am so glad to have it. She lived with our family so everything was passed on to mom and then to me. I hope to start passing her things onto my cousins kids while I'm still around to see who gets what! It's time for the younger ones to enjoy the family things what there is of them, not really that many. I'm just glad her kids have a love of antiques and family!
I'm off to the kitchen now to get those chocolate chip cookies baked that I keep putting off. I know I won't be able to bake them without eating a few and I don't really need the extra weight...but it is almost the holidays....right!!!! hmmmmm sounds like a good excuse to me to sample some!! I'm going to put on a big pot of spaghetti sauce on to cook too for tonights dinner and I will freeze the rest for other meals.
Have a great day and keep warm,
