in my treasure box. It was always
carried by my mother.
am sure that many of you have never seen.
Her theory was that if she carried them
with her always she would never want.
They were passed to me upon her
me by my husband on our 58th anniversary.
It is to large to put in my treasure box

Nothing in the pot for me yet. Geesh, I
live here too. You would think that a girl with
a bumb leg would get some attention. No,
just a lot of food going on in the kitchen.
Ooops! I underestimated the food preparation.
This is a crock pot full of chicken gizzards and
thigh pieces cooking for ME!
Well, she is still working on Christmas stuff.
On the cooling rack are the spinich balls. I
made 60 of these last week and they are almost
all gone - so another 60 - requested by
friends. Also a great receipe for a
small gift for friends that request them.
And I always find myself with this!
not many "gadgets." However, I love this gadget.

prepacked half turkey breast (boned)

several of those to supplement
the roasted turkey. It roasted beautifully
and Eloise and I have been having
it for our dinner the last several nights.
it always ends up this way!!

This is only a sampling of the ornaments
that were exchanged.
