The topic: Hmmm….


The sweet potato casserole calls for four large sweet potatoes.  That you peel and chunk and put in a “medium-sized” pot.  I’m doubling the recipe.  So, I figure one large pot should do it.

It didn’t.  I needed to put them into two large pots.

I’m thinking that russet potatoes aren’t the only thing CostCo carries that are three-four times the normal size.

This oughta be fun.

The topic: What I found out


If you overstuff the garbage disposal with sweet potato peels, it won't run.

The topic: This is unexpected


I’m really missing my mom right now. Because of the parade.  Mom loved the Thanksgiving parade. She’d always ask me “are you watching the parade?” 

No, I wasn’t. But she never missed one.

And even though we didn’t spend Thanksgiving with her all that often, because of the parade, I’m missing her.  A lot.  My eyes keep tearing up.

Whooda thunk?

Well, mom, wherever you are, I hope you can watch your parade today. I’ll watch it, too and imagine that we’re watching it together.

Happy Thanksgiving.
