What a Day. I’m glad it is now Wednesday.

1. Grocery Shopping.  I remembered to bring my neat-o shopping bags to the grocery store. I used all of them! Starting the Holiday Eating/Cooking/Shopping/Party Season!!!

2. Dan and I have been hosting a monthly dinner party for a Boy Scout Event Planning Committee.  I love cooking for them because they love my cooking! They are coming again on Sunday, and I’m not ready. The house is in shambles, getting ready for Silver Bella, changing decorations, and also overall laziness.

To be fair to myself, I have a wicked case of allergies, a sty in my eye again, and general malaise.

This Sunday, I’m cooking a turkey, stuffing, gravy, and a cranberry jello salad. I bought some frozen pies from the Village Piemaker. Man O Man, these pies are good!!!

3. I’m trying to buy more local products.
I’ve started getting Milkfrom Burbach’s Countryside Dairy. It is sold at Hy-Vee stores, along with the pies.

Another item at Hy-Vee that I tried today was a new kind of chicken.
Just Bare Chicken says it’s nothing but all natural chicken. The meat was very good.There is a Farm Code on the package where you can put it in the website and find out more about where your chicken grew up. My code was smeared…..but now that I think of it, I may NOT want to know where it was raised….

I also got an Organic Smart Chicken.
I baked them both and compared.
They were both good.
The Smart Chicken was bigger and meatier.

We ate our chicken while watching election returns……..
Then I cut up the rest of the meat and made homemade chicken stock from the bones.
Our house smells GREAT tonight!!!

OH, I almost forgot my secret weapon. Holiday Coffee and New Flavors of Bailey’s!!!
(Pear’s Coffee is roasted in Omaha!)

PS. It is a well-known fact that I have Bailey’s in my coffee EVERY MORNING!
