It is starting to look all "Christmasey" at the Culp household. There's still a bit more to do but my talented fairy will be coming tomorrow to put the finishing touches on things. A few ~a very few~ miscellaneous thoughts for today...............
I had never seen or had dressing cooked in a black iron skillet until this past Thursday. We shared a Thanksgiving meal with some dear friends (we had our family Thanksgiving on Tuesday) and that is her dressing in the above picture. I remember in my childhood watching my Grandmother bake her dressing in a big roaster type pan and she did everything in a black skillet. But, apparently it never occurred to her to bake her dressing in it, or surely she would have. Regardless, it was simply delicious!
If you do not know about Flings, you should. They are a disposable trash can and they work like magic. I saw them and decided to give one a try and I'll just tell you, they work like a charm. They come in basic colors and patterns or much fancier, if your occasion calls for it. I believe the cost is around $4 each. You can thank me later for telling you about these. ~smile~
Yesterday marked the 5th anniversary of my Mom's death. If you missed my special blog entry yesterday then you might want to go here and read it. It was the hardest anniversary I have experienced thus far, and writing this post was very therapeutic for me.
Blessings to you as we begin the Christmas season!
