I don’t usually cook when I’m here by myself but I really wanted some turkey and dressing this year…..add some broccoli casserole and cranberry sauce and it didn’t last long.



When I wasn’t sitting with Chesty or cooking I made a few blocks for my Rail Fence quilt. Heartstrings is having a sew along and I decided to go with Rail Fence blocks from my string bins rather than our usual HeartStrings blocks. Not so pretty at this point … I’m going to think of it as a utility quilt rather than an ugly quilt!

    Yummm, how did you get your turkey to come out so moist? Mine rarely does that. Sure glad the wee pup is feeling better and you can get a good night’s rest.

    I hope Chesty is feeling better. I love the rail fence blocks, so fun and scrappy. Did you sew them to a foundation?

    On the holidays, I also prepare a traditional meal for myself. Your meal looks pretty yummy!

    I like the String Rail Fence blocks: they are not ugly or utilitarian at all.

    Turkey is so easy to make, once you get used to it! My Mom used to make one just about every week because we are from a BIG family and the left-overs can really be used in a big variety of meals from turkey sandwiches to soup! If it was just a small weekly dinner, she would often make a turkey breast instead of the entire bird. Glad you took the time to cook a meal that you enjoy. We try to make a “tradition” of cooking meals for special occasions, most Sundays… and just because! Happy to hear that Chesty is on the mend too. Cheers! Evelyn
