Oh boy… crazy busy week ahead but it ends with a great time with friends – even though APPARENTLY Homecoming is NOT ABOUT ME, but for my children now!  WHAT the heck, when did that happen?  I LOVE going to the parade and football game then on to some party with all my old friends – BUT now the evening starts that way but somehow ends with me taking and picking up kids to the annual dance….so;  I found a fun recipe for “hot caramel cider” that you can make in a crock and I shall have it ready for when all the running is done on Friday Night – so, it’s alllll  gooood!!! 


Lots of plans for today….  BONUS gas point deals start back up today, gotta start the “snack stash”!!  I still have more apples to finish turning into something, I have made a few batches of applesauce and still want some apple pie filling.  I am thankful for one more Turkey in the freezer to be made up prior to this year’s sales…  Roasting it TODAY for a fabulous Roast Turkey Dinner tonight  – after we get home from CRAZY practice, of course – and will have enough turkey left-overs to make all the chicken meals planned for this week (simply replacing the chicken with cubed turkey) – so smart and resourceful I am… LOL!!    BTW, can someone do our laundry?  I am needing blankets washed and winter loads started, BUT there just is NOT enough time and 1 load per day is just NOT cutting it!!!  I sincerely STILL believe I would make out like a bandit with 2 washer/dryers!  Anyhow, here’s the week:
