I haven't had peanut butter pie in so long I'll have to have my leftovers first before I start cooking againHappy thanksgiving! Oh that cheesecake and peanut butter pie really hit the spot... So did the pumpkin pie....and the pecan pumpkin pie....
I may have put on a few extra pounds
Wow that's a lot of effort. I am sure the pies taste great. Maybe that's why I never cared for pumpkin pie. I never had one made from scratch.The only way I ever eat a piece of pumpkin pie is if it's made with a pie pumpkin. These 2 for a dollar each gave me 10 cups of pumpkin which is 5 pies. That's 40 cents for pumpkin per pie all day (cheap cheap) and it tastes so good and well that's why chefs gain a bit But oh my garsh I had to have my son chop it with a great big knife and pound on that knife with a piece of 2×4 just to cut them in half then I had to do 2 hours in the oven steaming them. Today I processed the batch into batches for baking pies. Tomorrow I'll be a baking. It's sooo worth it
Yes that's why I never really could eat them too. There's something about canned pumpkin that I don't like. It gives me a little heartburn or something. I also don't use cinnamon. Only ginger and cloves but even when I made fresh pumpkin pie with cinnamon I could anyway. I stopped using cinnamon because I have so many family members that are allergic to cinnamon.Wow that's a lot of effort. I am sure the pies taste great.

Oh yeah I actually did get to see that woodpecker again. I didn't get a picture but the bird will be back. It looks so much like a sparrow but bigger that I don't always notice maybe. It has a black and white speckled underbody also. Hops along the ground but hangs on the tree and pecks. It's probably definitely a northern flicker. Google said the tree pecking like a woodpecker is just for communication and it's rare to get to see that Most likely female and it's very common here in Ohio. I'm happy the bird started visiting me though. I've never noticed them before.Yes that's why I never really could eat them too. There's something about canned pumpkin that I don't like.

I woke up at 2am. I tried my best to go back to sleep but nooo.... Razberri had a new vet introduction wellness appointment today so there's no way I could. I wound up absolutely loving my new vet though. She does torts too. She's an adorable young lady maybe we'll get another veterinarian member. I'll have to have Sapphire get his wellness check and establish a vet too soon. Since we ladies tend to chat I have plansWow, that's a late one Ms Cathie!
Yuck, rough day yesterday....no, or not enough sleep. Maybe today will be better as I slept for 5 hrs. I close the vents at night so it gets cooler in my room. I left the sliding door to my deck open 2 ft last night, when I woke at 1AM, it was 51F in my room! My bed is a heated waterbed so it's cozy when it's cold but 51 was a bit chilly! LOL
It's up to a reasonable 70F now for shower time!
Matilda is up behind me, eating and bathing and turtling.....life is good!
Yes. I was apprehensive. My veternararians office finally hired and replaced the exotic vet on staff. My last vet I miss extremely but he retired during covid. She's adorable And she likes torts too . He didn't. I think she's going to work out . And we got along famously or the deal would be off in a heartbeat. We'll see when I take my tort in for a wellness visit.You couldn't sleep b/c of your apprehension in meeting the new Vet? I'm so glad that you like her and are comfortable with her!
Is thanksgiving then instead if Christmas or do you do dinner at Christmas too?I cooked a ham a couple weeks ago, then the turkey a few days ago. Thanksgiving is just another day here at the turtle farm, no big deal. My daughter and I had an understanding many years ago: I love the way my house smells when a turkey is cookin' away in the oven, and she likes to make turkey dinner at her house, so we both just have our own day.
Then I had turkey soup a couple days ago, but it didn't turn out very good. But I'm lovin' those turkey sandwiches.
I asked my friend, Google, if the two stores where I do my grocery shopping will be open on Thursday (the day I normally make my one trip into town each week), and she said yes, they're both open. So Thanksgiving is just another day here. . . post office to get my mail, grocery shopping and maybe the gas station, if needed.
I don't do holidays. Because I like turkey and love the way the house smells when turkey is in the oven, I take advantage of the holidays to buy a turkey. I usually cook it as soon as it's thawed out.Is thanksgiving then instead if Christmas or do you do dinner at Christmas too?
I'll bet certain visitors enjoy the leftovers though. Even on Christmas or Thanksgiving , the first question I get asked when they walk in the door is Do you have any leftovers I usually do because it's really hard to cook for one or two. I'm usually glad to have leftover eaters. Then I don't have toI don't do holidays.

No special dinner at Christmas. It's just another day around here.
My Dad, born '23, used to feel most Holidays were invented by people in order to make money from other people.I don't do holidays.
