Onion Rings & Potato Soup

We decided to celebrate Thanksgiving with our kids and grand-kids this Sunday. It is hard going between 2 families on holidays, so we chose another day to celebrate. I made a big breakfast this morning for our son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter, who stayed a few hours. My husband and I were invited to our daughter's in-laws for dinner but Mike wanted to relax in his lazy boy and read the paper and just have a relaxed day off so we decided to attempt to have dinner at Bob Evans but it ended up being closed. We then went to the Bass Pro shop to see if their restaurant was open, it was closed. So, we ended up eating at Quaker Steak & Lube, next to the Bass Pro Shop. We were greeted by very friendly staff who acted very lonely and so happy we decided to stop in and spend our holiday with them. They did have Turkey dinners but for some reason, it didn't sound good anymore. I had a taste for something entirely different, out of the ordinary....would you believe I ordered onion rings & Potato soup? It was delicious! They served the onion rings on a car antenna with a sauce on the side called Louisiana Lickers ...a spicy sauce they serve with wings. My husband ordered a bottle to go. We were entertained by big screen t.v.'s all over the place which had on the football game and Kelly Clarkson singing at half time. The decor in the restaurant was corvette cars up on jacks high in the air and one car was even hanging on the wall. My husband was amazed at how they were able to hang a car on the wall. Who would have thought we would be sitting in a booth on Thanksgiving Day, eating out of the ordinary food and enjoying a most unusual holiday together in this style?.....When we got home I enjoyed pumpkin pie and cool whip, while chatting with my sister on the web cam. I have one thing to say about this day.............To this, I give Thanks!

"Happy Thanksgiving"

I am so Thankful for so many things, too many to mention. My prayer is that everyone in the world has food to eat and a warm shelter. I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. Psalm 9:1.

I hope this Thanksgiving Day, you are surrounded by loved ones and enjoy the great dishes and beauty that surrounds you!

"Throwback Thursday"

Carter, my middle grand-son at 2 weeks old....He is 5 years old now. This is my favorite picture of him. It is so Carter. Love him. When he comes to visit me, he is so emotional at leaving because of the attachment to me. He's a deep thinker and you can see it in this picture! Visit pinks and blues for another fun T.T.

"My New Cookware"

I treated myself to an early Christmas present and simply love them. It's the 10 pc. Rachael Ray Aluminum Cookware. I had all pots going today on the stove and clean up was a breeze. They match my Fat Chef kitchen so well. I originally got the all orange enamel ones but was not happy with them. They seemed very light weight and was not what I expected. I returned them for this set and am glad I did. The best part was they were on sale 20% off, then I had a coupon for an additional 30% off.....I sure do love bargains.....Happy Cooking!

"These boots were made for crawling"

Abby spent the afternoon with me today. She is showing off her pink boots. We had so much fun playing. She has 2 new teeth, which makes 4 and a new one on it's way. She is starting to crawl. She is such a joy to have around.....

"Mimi got stung by a Bumblebee"

Abby is doing her Elvis impression with her lip in this Halloween photo from last night. She was the cutest little Bumblebee I've ever seen. It was a great night having ALL "4" of the grand-kids stop by. I ended up following Steph, Jeff and the boys to a local church for "Trunk or Treat". My husband was stuck with passing out the candy...poor guy.

Carter and Noah dressed as Pirates.....They have always loved to play dress up, so a few Christmas's ago I filled for each one, a trunk of dress up items. I was blessed to find a clearance at the Disney Store. I'm glad they still like to put them all to good use......Love these guys!

Gray was a Frog, in case you didn't notice....He wasn't too happy about keeping his outfit on last night but Mimi did talk him into it when it got colder.....
