Sugar Scuttle and Orange Lemonade Twist

I wanted to share with you the sugar scuttle I purchased a few months ago. halloween-and-soup-0221

While visiting Shelia some time back she showed us her sugar scuttle.  I had never seen one before and I loved it.  I bid and won one on ebay and have never seen them sold anywhere else.  Since that time I noticed that  Sharon has one also.  It is really so shiny and has lovely etched details (I love etching on anything) but in the picture it doesn’t show its “true” self unfortunately.  The cute little spoon has its own little spot to sit on the back.  It really is cute don’t you think?halloween-and-soup-0173

I was looking for something on out one of my favourite recipe sites, KraftKitchen the one with the free quarterly magazine you can subscribe to and have delivered to your home, I came across this delish drink.  I haven’t made it and probably won’t be until the warm weather comes along but it looks so good.   Some of my friends in warmer places might want to give it a taste.  orange_lemonade_twist2  The picture comes from the Kraft Foods Site and thats where you’ll find the recipe also.  Let me know what it tastes like if you make it before me .  Yum!

Thanksgiving and Hallowe’en Oneliners

Its Friday again and I hope you’ve had a great week.  This weekend is our Thanksgiving and we’re having turkey dinner at my place.  There will be 10 of us which will includes my brother and his girlfriend who are here from British Columbia.  We haven’t all gotten together with him here for Thanksgiving, or Christmas in years so it’ll be special.

I’ve made some pine cone turkey name place holders but because things have been busy I can’t share them with you right now.  I should have some pics for you by the end of the weekend.  They are cute though.

In the meantime here are some corney little Hallowe’en one-liners….you might want to share with your children and/or grandchildren.  Have a lovely weekend.   Judi

Birthday & Italian Dinner Prep and Great Shopping Deals

Just the 3 of us

I’m finishing this post at the top.  We had a nice birthday party for Son #2.  At the end of the day everything did taste good and we had laughs and I was so happy we were all together.  This is a picture of me, Madeline and the birthday boy.

So it was a very busy and productive Saturday.  One of those days that seems to go on and on and things get done!  Wednesday is Son #1’s birthday so we’re getting together at my place tomorrow for dinner.  I can’t imagine how involved this simple birthday has been today.  I was up early and went shopping to Oakridges Outfitters and bought 2 really nice shirts for him.  One is a button down shirt that has a neat texture and is a dressy casual look.  The other is a  really neat t-shirt.   I may treat him to a couple of car wash coupons as well.
