Thanksgiving for Two


This year many families are going low key for Thanksgiving.

This nasty pandemic is putting a damper on the normal Thanksgiving get togethers. Typically my husband and I go to my niece’s home with the rest of the family – my sister and her husband, my niece’s family, my brother, my grandson and his girlfriend and anyone else wee can find to bring. It’s a loud and wild event and we have a lot of fun and eat too much. And everyone gets a little turkey to take home for sandwiches later. Bot not this year.

This year my grandson will stay home with his mom and sister. My niece will have her mom and dad (my sister and brother-in-law) and my brother will be home with his room-mate. And my husband and I will celebrate alone. But we intend to enjoy it!

We’ll stay in our PJ’s most of the day. No chores except cleaning up after ourselves allowed. And we’ll even have a Thanksgiving meal – with enough leftover for sandwiches! Continue reading

What’s for Dinner? Sunday Link up #290


Holy Moly – Thanksgiving is THIS week? With the pandemic raging all across the world, many people are spending the holiday very low key and very small. We will be having it just the two us (watch tomorrow for a Thanksgiving for Two post). It’s going to be a strange holiday season this year. But in keeping with the theme – I am very Thankful that my family has managed to stay relatively healthy through all of this. I am thankful that we embrace each other and care enough to sacrifice one day to keep each other safe. And, until then, do you know…

S’Mores Cocoa


Seems it’s always National something day! Well, today is no different. Today is National Camp Day.  What? Camp day in the middle of November? Yep. A day set aside to celebrate camping. And not just camping, but those camps we all got to attend as kids!

But what can we do amidst the covid 19 and the cold and the rain that brings that wonderful feeling of camp? Well, there are two things that we always had at the campfire – hot cocoa and s’mores. So why not combine them?
