Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! I am starting on the stuffing, rolls and pies tonight and then taking all of that along with two cats on a two hour drive where we will be celebrating. Have a safe weekend. Circles of Thanksgiving found here.
Remember this post, about the new recipes I found for my november meal list? Well I tried them all. I would recommend all but the wild rice recipe. The gourmet mac and cheese was seriously the best mac and cheese I have ever had. It was so good. Try it, you won't be sorry! Now on to searching for recipes for next month.
P.S. I am starting a six monthish project-making a family cookbook with recipes from my cousins and aunts and grandma among others. I am excited about it. Currently I am starting to collect recipes and try and figure out the cover. I am thinking it would be fun to have some old pictures of my Grandma on each of the section dividers.
Thanksgiving is almost here! I have started drying bread for the stuffing. I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year but if I were I would love any of these centerpieces. You can find these and more here.
Can I just tell you how much I love the blog Black Eiffel? I loved the picture of the dresses I saw there and I really really loved the post where I learned all about these fabulous classic books with the beautiful covers.
Today I tested out the cake ball recipe I saw on Pioneer Woman. I love the way they turned out. Perfect for Rivalry Week in college football! One of the things I love about these is that you can adapt them to any holiday or occasion. I am excited to make some for Valentine's Day. I used a carrot cake mix and a white cake mix. I think I liked the carrot cake best. You can see the recipe here.
Prague has quickly jumped to my short list of European cities to see. It looks amazing!
The Charles Bridge was built in 1357 and was an important means of trade. The National Theatre in Prague.
Old town Prague. A highlight of Prague is the Astronomical Clock, which is on the side of Old Town City Hall. At the top of the hour there is the "Walk of the Apostles" where figures of the Apostles and Christ come out of the clock. This clock dates back to 1410.
The picture on the right is of Prague Castle, one of the largest castles in the world.
I saw some peacock earrings on a girl somewhere and they looked awesome! So I went to Etsy to see if I could find any similar, I did. While I was looking I found some other lovely peacock items. Enjoy.
I see posts about how people love red lipstick (see here or for bright pink here.) Personally I prefer muted colors, if I wear lipstick at all. Let's be honest, a little chapstick and I am good to go. If I am being really fancy, a little tinted chapstick. What do you think, is red lipstick for more than just Halloween?
