Post Thanksgiving Wrap Up

Thanksgiving is in the books. The kitchen is cleaned and scrubbed and dishes all put away. This year really was my most relaxing yet. I did several dishes on Wednesday and just heated them on Thursday, the girls each made a dish and it was just generally quiet. Hubby's nephew was dropped off from a friend's house as his folks were gone. The family he was with had the flu. If we are plagued with that this week I am not going to be a happy girl. Oh well what are you gonna do?

Yesterday we solved this problem. The girls are now in a run in the back corner of the yard. No more poop on my patio. That was not a good part of free ranging in my small yard.

All the fall decor is packed away. So now onto Christmas. Outside lights go up this weekend.

Tonight is turkey soup. Do you ever make Bisquick drop biscuits? Just add some grated cheddar cheese and yummo! The family loves these with soup.

One last look at at the table pre-feast.

Happy Thanksgiving from Q!

Wow, that is one clean kitchen!!! It sounds like you had a nice Thanksgiving too! My girls do stroll across the cement from time to time, leaving a bit of doo here and there. I try to hose it off straight away. Mostly they prefer the grove and the yard thankfully.
Mine are barely laying eggs. Molting is an ugly mess!!!

Ugh! I'll pray that y'all will escape the flu. Princess Q is so cute....what an adorable photo!

Always made the drop variety when the boys were growing up...never added the cheese, though. Next batch I make I will try that

Having leftover turkey soup for lunch today ! : )

So very nice! I love those chickens.
Wash, wash your hands often it helps to keep the flu bug away!!

Hope you don't get sick. It's never a fun time. The little girl in the picture is so cute. My thanksgiving decor is coming down today.

There's been a lot of colds and flu making the rounds here but thankfully neither have visited my family. :) Hope you all stay well. Today I made olive bread -- I don't use Bisquick anymore but I do make cheddar biscuits. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Your table looks great! And your kitchen is bright and spotless! Hopefully I'll be able to get some Christmas decorations up this weekend, too.

Elaine, your table was lovely. I prepared several items ahead of time too. I had not cooked the whole meal it years but I did okay. xo, olive

Hi Elaine-
Hope you don't get that flu bug. I'd hate that.
I've just about caught up on my clean up after having all the kids and the littles here. Just our family with 6 kids and grands...1 brother and my dad and 2 nephews...31 people!

I have kitchen envy!
As to the chickens... I'm feeling the same way- I hate that they would poop on our porch!
They are pinned right now. For winter.
Much easier this way.

take care! Pat

I remember those biscuits well! I think they've changed the formula of Bisquick over time...but with cheese added sounds good!

Hope you don't get the flu...Your kitchen is so neat.

I hope you don't catch it either, but I'm sure it meant so much to your nephew to have him over!

My niece is a married mom of two, and she still talks about the time that we had her over to Christmas dinner.

She and her parents were supposed to go to the in-laws that year (it was their turn). But my sister-in-law's siblings and their parents didn't want to be exposed to my niece's mono, even though they'd be safe as long as they didn't kiss her (at least, that's what they were told).

So she wasn't welcome there. She was very hurt. We invited her over and she still remembers that "kindness" as she puts it. We never caught anything either, lol!

However, the next year we gave them all the flu when my son exposed them.....oh dear. Little kids slobber all over everyone and everything, lol!

Quick question, do you mind if we pin things from your blog? I'd like to pin your kitchen and a couple of other things. Is that o.k?

momstheword said...

Ooooops, I forgot I also wanted to ask you what did you make ahead? I just want to know for next year. Thanks!

Whenever you post a picture of your chickens, I feel that it won't take that long until my chicken house is back and some chickens picking up worms and seed around here. :-)

Linking from MHC and fascinated by your city chicken journey, especially since it's something I'd like to do, but we have zoning laws against it.
