I wanted to take a moment to say:

May your stuffing be tasty



May your turkey be plump,


May your potatoes and gravy


Never have a lump.


May your yams be delicious


and your pies take the prize.


Finally, may your Thanksgiving dinner


Stay off your thighs!







The YUCKY Pickled Egg Recipe: (and I said yucky only because I dislike them.  I am requested to bring them to every get together and at least once or twice a year just for hubby)

1 cup sugar
1 cup vinegar
12 whole cloves
2 12-15 oz cans of beets
1 dozen eggs - hard boiled, peeled

In a large plastic bag or non-staining container with lid, dump 1 can of beets. 
Place the eggs on top of that.
Dump the second can of beets in.
Bring the sugar, vinegar, and cloves just to a boil.
Dump the sugar mixture over everything. Seal the container and let them soak at least 1 day, but 2 to 3 is optimal!
Enjoy (because I don't!!!)

*credit to the lil poem goes to an email - wish I was that talented*

p.s. meant to tell you I don't think I'd like these, either. I hate beets, for one. And I won't even go into the rest! lol.
