Spud, don't worry about the double pictures.  One can never have too many pumpkin muffins! 

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 25, 2014 at 12:45pm

Don't know why the picture got posted twice!

These pumpkin muffins are good.  Just as I come in the door of WinCo, they always have some cookies, muffins, or other sweets, that they cook in bakery.  A couple of months ago I tried some cookies and liked the taste and the price, so once in a while I buy what they offer.  So far, I've liked everything.

Thanks Felaine.  I'll try to remember that if I ever get the urge to eat some cranberries again.

Spud, cranberries keep wonderfully well in the freezer, and you don't have to thaw them to cook with them (and who can eat raw cranberries? Ew.)

I don't eat much turkey, but, at this time of year, "WinCo Foods" usually have turkeys at very good prices, if you buy a certain amount of food, so I will have some if it thaws by then, if not, the next day, or....

Will have no cranberries.  Don't care for them unless fresh, but even them, a few go a long ways, so I don't buy them because a lot of the package goes bad before I eat them.

Bought some pumpkin muffins and a pumpkin pie at WinCo, but I will probably have to add more spices to the pie, as store pies are always too mild for my taste.

Felaine, I'm sorry you have a poor thanksgiving.  I like Randy's idea of the Thanksgiving fairies sending you some turkey money.

I tried several kinds of cat food last year, and they were edible, but I didn't like the pieces of bone in them.  Do cat's like the bone pieces, or is it that the manufacturers are too cheap to grind the bone finer, or what?

My sister and I will be joining my father for a Thanksgiving dinner at his retirement community--a first! I can imagine what they'll have!

If I'm not satisfied, I'm going to fix my own T-giving meal later. I just don't have freezer room for leftover turkey. It may have to wait 'til christmas.

Felaine, at least you have a sense of humor. Give me (us) your address and perhaps the Thanksgiving fairy will send you some turkey money.

I'm truly sorry to hear that Felaine. Like Daniel, I wish I were closer.

I am at Laura and Larry's home enjoying the forest and its inhabitants. Michelle and her family will be with her partner's family. Laurie, Zac and 4 month old Brooklyn will be here, as will some other of Larry's family. 

Our menu is a traditional one with turkey stuffed with sausage dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, a green salad, cranberry sauce made with oranges. Larry will make two pumpkins pies. 

There will probably be 15 for dinner, although that could change. 

One thanksgiving morning several years ago, I woke up to an empty house. Laura and Larry were both gone. With no one around, I started the turkey and finished the rest of the menu. When everything was ready to eat, as if planned, in came the entire family who had been called out in the night to fight a house fire.  All the adults in this family participate in the volunteer fire district, they never know when a call will come.
