It was a quiet and relaxing Thanksgiving Day.
 Started out by  making some Thanksgiving Fixins
Home-made Cranberry sauce !

 Watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.
Believe it or not it is quite a chilly day here in Florida . My son could not make it home for the holiday, he just finished special training at Lackland Air force Base,San Antonio, Texas and headed back to his base in Louisiana.
 I miss him so very much & was happy to talk to him on the phone while he was having dinner with some friends.
 Girlfriend I think???? 
Too soon to tell I guess ...
I was sad a little bit today ..the holidays are tough due to missing family in all ...
however my husband Rick made 
Thanksgiving Day very special !
We enjoyed each other company cooking together & watching Football ! Go Steelers !
Too bad they lost to Baltimore :( 

Not so much !

Tom the Turkey ...Out of the oven ...
Ready to Rest & Carve!

Right beside all the Fixins !
Ready to Eat !
I did go off my GF diet for the day...
However I did make Cornbread/Gluten free 
Stuffing with sausage & mushrooms.    

To change things up a bit for dessert ...
My husband & I made an apple crisp ...

Although we still had a mini pumpkin pie !

November Reads!

                   Here is what I'm reading this month .... 

Suzanne Somers Book collection
 I have several of Suzanne Somers Books ... 
 I'm currently  reading Bombshell 
The book, a series of profiles of and interviews with 15 physicians, spotlights a dozen bombshells, or breakthroughs, that Somers says will change the way we think about getting older.Telomerase. The biggest bombshell in the book, Somers says — the thing that will most change the way we age — is something called TA-65, a daily supplement designed to reverse the aging process by activating telomerase, an enzyme discovered by three Nobel Prize-winners that lengthens the telomeres on our chromosomes.

I got a new cookbook ....
You Can Trust a Skinny Cook by Allison Fishman

                        Reading a Cowboy Love Story ...
