Wednesday, I had to make the stuffing, sweet potatoes, dessert, pie (yes I made them for other guests, but with little sugar), bake the turkey, ham and rolls. I got everything done but the turkey, and baked that Thursday morning, along with 4 other veggie side dishes. I put up my outside Christmas lights, which are minimal, but pretty and noticeable (no roof or ladder climbing).
Friday we had our 2nd Thanksgiving, and Saturday our 3rd, where I got to taste my first heated cider with a shot of salted carmel vodka. We watched the Buckeyes win, and headed home to relax.
Sunday, Dec.1st rolled in with thunder and lightning. A wintery-mix headed in with it. We cut wood until the rain arrived again.
I can't believe my Mom saved this, and one of my brother's displays it at Christmas. I made this way back in elementary school, ha ha! It's a pringles can Santa.
Question: Does anyone have a homemade whole wheat bread recipe? Also, does anyone have a good homemade whole wheat roll recipe? Thanks! Or even a book title to check out of our library as well? I'm going to try some recipes from Jovial's website.
Today I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

Prayers for my friend's mother. She passed away last week. She broke her foot while in the nursing home, was sent to a medical clinic where she was on life support. My mother - she fell and has lots of pain and one very big bruise.
