I love making bread but don't like kneading it so have always relied on my trusty kneading attachment on my mixer to do the heavy work. Well.......until today. I have hunted and hunted and hunted and hunted and I cannot find the crazy thing!!!! Do any of the rest of you spend a good part of your life hunting for things? Please say you do and make me feel better. You know, misery loves company!
Ssoooooooo...... I did all of the kneading and gave my arms a good workout. Not that they need it or anything mind you....I wish...... Can't wait to bake these off and have that lovely aroma wafting through the house, that and hot spiced cider are my two favorite fragrances of the the holidays.
I will be having around 25 this year for Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone brings something and helps and I love the hustle and bustle in the kitchen with each one doing their designated job. I cook the turkey, stuffing, potatoes and rolls and everything else is brought in by someone else. I did buy some sweet potatoes yesterday and I'm going to make Mallow-Topped Sweet Potatoes this year, it's a recipe I found through Taste of Home. They have some of the best recipes and they are easy to make.
My niece Jo-Lynne at Musings of a Housewife told about a wonderful give away that's going on right now.
HP TouchSmart 600 Giveaway
Biggest giveaway ever! Got your attention? Good, because the rules are a little different from previous giveaways so read all the information carefully.
The HP TouchSmart 600-1055 is a desktop PC where, as the name implies, you can touch the screen to manipulate information. It comes with all the stuff you desperately covet with the bonus of being able to pinch, rotate and drag things anywhere you want with your own little fingers. Is that not completely fun?
Windex not included.
Go to scribbit.blogspot.com for all of the instructions! This is one super give away!!! It seems like after a rather slow summer there are great give aways popping up all over!
I'm sure all of you women out there have heard the new guidelines for mammograms and self exams. My opinion on this is RUBBISH! Don't let anyone talk you into not having your regular mammograms and to not do breast self exams! Many, many lives have been saved through these two procedures, my Mom's included. She is a 17 year cancer survivor because she had her regular mammogram even though there was nothing that could be felt. It was a mass rather then a lump and only mammogram detected it.
I was in one of my board meetings Thursday evening at the hospital and of course this subject came up. There are doctors on this board along with those of us that are patient advocates and ALL of the doctors there agreed that this was a terrible announcement to put out to the public. They all will continue to recommend that their patients continue to have their regular mammograms and to do self exams so please disregard what the media is saying. There, I got that off my chest.................sorry, couldn't resist the play on words.
On that note I think I will start making bows out of some very pretty ribbon that I bought for our wreaths at church. I am on the decorating committee and we try to come up with different things each year and change the color of the ribbons on the wreaths. My late mother in law taught me how to make them many years ago and it has served me well over the years making my packages festive looking and for my decorating. If anyone wants to know how to make them just leave me a comment and I will do a bow making tutorial next time. :o)
Hope you all are having a great weekend and please forgive my misspellings as I'm too lazy to look everything up in the dictionary. :o)
