I am dragging today........we've been sick here, everyone except (thankfully) my grandma. Still praying that she doesn't contract any of what any of us had. Mostly cold stuff with some having stomach issues. I had some serious sinus pain going on. I am on the mend, but still very tired and a little stuffy still.
We have been enjoying some very cool/cold weather. We had our first fire in the fireplace this past Sunday, over which we roasted marshmallows as a super special treat, then (some) hot dogs for supper (which is not as great as it sounds, especially with three little ones clamoring to get in there and roast) I actually let everyone roast one and then I threw the rest on the grill. I also made s'mores for dessert.
On a side-note with the fireplace - I had no idea how much wood you actually use to keep a fire going! Whoa! So far we've just used free wood from fallen trees, but if I want to keep the fire going, and I do, we'll have to buy some and/or try to get free wood.
Anyway, on to the menu. I'm working on planning Thanksgiving and trying to get menus for the next week or two, just to keep ahead.Monday
