Before November ends!

 I did finish painting my kitchen stools black. The paint stayed a bit tacky for awhile, but they are finally completely cured.

 It seems like yesterday that I put out my fall decorations. Now I will be replacing them with Christmas decorations.

 We decided to try our hand at frying our turkey this year instead of baking. We ended up frying 3 turkeys. They were wonderful. We prefer fried over baked!
Luckily, we had nice weather for it! Of course, we had plenty of food. The menu included: the fried turkey, Giblet gravy, Cornbread dressings, jellied cranberry, Broccoli Rice, Green Beans, Sweet Potato Casserole, Cherry Coke Salad, Stuffed Celery, Rolls, Fruit Salad, Creamy Pumpkin Pie, Kentucky Pecan Pie, German Potatoes, Sourdough bread, Buttermilk Pie, and Traditional Pumpkin Pie.
Now on to the Christmas preparations!
Y'all come back,


  1. Christmas is certainly barreling down on us now, isn't it?!

  2. Awesome photos. Yummy that all sounds soo good ! ya did a wonderful job on the sstools they look great ! Have a great day !

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We fried our turkey as well. I was surprised how juicy it was. I still haven't put up my Christmas decorations.

  4. (to answer your question, thelma & louise are catahoula hounds - well, thelma is mixed with some pointer blood too, we think, since she howls like a hound. the louisiana catahoula leopard cur is a tough breed bred for wild boar hunting. :) we rescued them off the back road where someone had dumped them and left them to starve...)

  5. We've never tried fried turkey here... but it sure looks good!

  6. Cherry coke cake? Now that sounds yummy

  7. The fried turkey sounds wonderful and I love how the stools turned out!

  8. You are brave to fry the turkey - but it looks like you have it well under control. Love your "new" black stools!


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
