    What? you think we all bounce around on these threads?
    Funny enough ... I was chuckling the other day as to how we'd bounced from one thread to the other, yet the same subject! And got thinking how confused others who drop by the threads would be!

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
    to all my American friends!!!
    .... I hope you have an enjoyable time time of appreciation with your family and the festivities planned are filled with many memories for years to come!

    My American Thanksgiving this year will be filled with rejoice that you, Honchey made it thru Sandy and what followed.
    And I will be recognizing the special blessings each of my PC/FWS friends have been to me.

    Happy Turkey Time ... Ladies!

    A fine day before Thanksgiving to everyone...the expectations are a'risin in waiting for the BIG turkey day tomorrow. I am so happy we have company coming in today and tomorrow! May it be a wonderful day for all.

    Honchey, I hope you all are feeling better. Dublb, you all will continue to be in our prayers. JanRN, hope you get a very good offer on your Mother's house. It is not easy to clean out and get ready for a sale...emotions can run high. Places where we were raised and Grandma's last house are all gone...torn down. Time moves on. QuiltE, we give you permission to celebrate with us on our holiday...along with Anael...too...meet you all at the Virtual RV.

    Off to the kitchen to do the casseroles and dessert cooking....have fun everyone!!

    Happy day before to all of you! Thanks for your kind thoughts throughout this entire year. Yinz were my "safe place"; I could come here and just enjoy all your company. This year for Thanksgiving it's just DH (MrjanRN) and I but I'm still cooking all our favorites. We'll just be eating them for a few more days--yay! Haven't been in my sewing room (my other safe place) in a few days; having withdrawal.
    Everyone have a happy, happy Thanksgiving--we all have so much to be thankful for. Eat responsibly--NOT! It's just one day and we can start a diet on Monday.
    Peace-Jan

    Our holiday plans have changed. W/DGM in the hospital we had ta regroup. DM isn't able ta git ready for us while she has been at the hospital sittin' w/DGM. My youngest DSis has the biggest house so we are goin' ta her house & we split the things DM was goin' ta cook between us. Actually I didn't take anything else home ta fix, both o' m DSis's split 'em. DH & I are fixin' the turkey & fixin's anyway. We also decided ta have our meal at supper time. This way if DGM isn't home yet, or even if she is home but not feelin' able ta goin', my DAunt can sit w/her as my DA will have had her family's Thanksgiving meal at noon.

    Amen to that thought JeanieG. Like the others on this trail, I have been busy fixing up goodies for tomorrow. Cleaned up the kitchen for the night, so we have a fresh clean start in the morning. Way more work to do then; did not get everything done today that I wanted too...just too slow. Forgot about having to feed people today...skipped all my thoughts to tomorrow. So we sampled a bit of tomorrow today.

    We all bought a book called the Farmer's Wife Sampler Pony Club. By Laurie Hird (I probably spelled it wrong.) It has 90 blocks & is so fun ta read about the kids gittin' their pony's. She choose a block that represented each story. Some o' us are done makin' their blocks & the rest o' us will be makin' blocks for a while ta come. (Like me. ) We'd be happy for ya ta join us.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family and friends and turkey. I have never cooked a turkey so please QNS if you have a spare drumstick in the RV its mine

    Bev I hope things settle down for you and your family and your DGM is able to celebrate with you.

    Anael and QuiltE we will just have to meet up at the RV for a sampling of QNS' fabulous hospitality.

    Will post pics of my finished Pony Club top on the weekend, tomorrow is a busy day for me and I was hoping someone else would post the first pic

    For 3 am on the clock, you explained Pony Club very well, Dublb. Hope things are getting better shortly for you.

    honchey, remembering you in early morning prayers; hope you all get better and on the road to recovery.

    Yes,, Mirabelle, in the virtual RV is turkey and stuffing ... one with oysters, the second with pieces of chicken in the stuffing. Green bean casserole, Sweet Potato casserole, Ham is comin' , and baked beans, green beans, mashed potatoes, 5 cup salad, 7 layer salad, salad fixings, incredible sweet corn, desserts: crunch, brownies, cake and pies.

    Gotta go bake that turkey and make the dressing. You all take care and have a good day.

    QNS---I hope that I can be like you when I "grow up". That menu sounds great!

    My sisters and I will do most of the cooking..Mom never really enjoyed it much so she is happy to turn over her kitchen to us. We will be having much of the same, the only addition I can add is a carrot casserole...very yummy. It is funny I had asked Mom Tuesday if she wanted me to bring it and she said no she thought there would be enough. Then Wednesday when she and my sister were at the store, my sister called and said "are you bringing that carrot casserole?" LOL I gave her the recipe and she is going to bring it instead.

    In case anyone wants to try it, here is the recipe:
    1 med chopped onion
    3T. Butter
    4c. cooked carrots
    1 can cream of celery
    1 can milk
    1/2t. salt
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2c. butter melted
    3c. stuffing mix (fine, more like bread crumbs)

    Brown onion in 3T butter. Set aside 1/4c. cheese. Combine the onion, carrots, soup, milk, salt and cheese. In separate bowl mix melted butter and stuffing. Then stir all together put in 2 1/2qt casserole, top with cheese.

    Bake at 350...30min covered, 15 min uncovered.

    Mmmmmm......the RV smells good this morning! Bev, I pray that your family has an uneventful day and that you can enjoy each others company. Honchey, you didn't say if your health would keep you from getting together with the family. I pray that you and your DH have strength and are showered with much love today. Carrie, sounds like your family enjoys some wonderful traditions. Will you give your daughter the sewing box today too? QNSue...you sound like a Pearl Mesta...the hostess with the mostest. I bet people love to be in the kitchen with you and help keep things moving. Thanks for the virtual RV so our continental friends can enjoy the meal with us. Mirabelle...do you have anything similar to our Thanksgiving? And another question that might sound stupid...do you have turkeys in Aussie land?
    My turkey breast is being cooked in a crockpot so I'm not sure when we will eat. The oven went out long before I got here and DH doesn't want to replace the stove until he finishes the kitchen counters. I'm not holding my breath. It's already been two years to get a plug-in rewired and a new ceiling done. I've come to the conclusion that relationships are more important than things so I enjoy everything he does do and don't complain about what he doesn't.

    Here's my fresh cranberry sauce.
    One bag fresh cranberries
    juice of one medium orange...zest from the peel
    1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
    1 tbs fresh shredded ginger.
    put all ingredients in pan and bring to boil. The berries will pop. Reduce heat and cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens some and remove from heat.
    This beats anything that you can buy in a can.

    It's just past breakfast, and you all have me drooling with all this delicious food.

    A tradition with my "adopted" family are
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/recipes...k-t202928.html
    They're always a hit ... and should there be any leftover, which seldom happens ... they make a great base for a leftovers casserole or a soup. mmmmmm!!!!!!!

    Carrie ... you have my attention with those carrots! Will be saving that as a Christmas potential

    MiraB ... I can't wait!! I can't wait!! I can't wait!! to see your PC all together!! YIppppeeeee!!!!!!!!
    Same question ... no turkeys in Aussie-Land? Hard to believe that'd be possible!!

    GGal ... turkey breast in the crock cooks pretty fast. You'll find it's nice and juicy. As a suggestion, raise it up, so it doesn't sit in the drippings. I have a small dish that fits in upside down that works when I do a turkey breast or a meatloaf.

    QNSue ... thanks for your all-inclusive RV, I think we non-Americans really are celebrating with you folks! I can almost smell the turkey cooking!!

    DublB ... and please correct me Honchey, if I'm wrong ... my take is that we will still posts our 90 blocks in the weekly threads and this thread will be for the bonus blocks, any sub-blocks, and of course the completed quilt tops. Also, I guess, it'd be the place to post pics of the WIP tops as we work away at determining the placement, etc.

    Am I on track here Ladies?

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you all!
    It's a perfectly beautiful mild November day here ... and will top off at 12C!!
    so I hope it's as glorious for you as you enjoy all your festivities.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Very quiet here in janRN land. Just DH & I so like Ggal, just doing a turkey breast. Although not in crockpot. Laughing, Ggal, because my kitchen has been torn up since January. I'm working around a ladder, drill, extension cords, etc. Clutter drives me nuts but you are so right: relationships are more important. After 42 yrs of marriage, I'm resigned to the fact that he's messy/I'm neat. After dinner we're going to a Festival of Trees. They have donated, decorated trees on display that are actioned off in 2 weeks for charity. Some are so creative: railroad tree, Steelers tree (of course), and lots done by local businesses to reflect their business. Always lots of fun.

    Please everyone, have a great day and give your loved ones an extra hug along with that extra helping of pumpkin pie.
    Peace-Jan

    Yes we do have turkeys down under, a lot of Aussies living in the southern states cook them for Christmas lunch, which is our important day.
    Because we have lived in very hot areas we keep our Christmas lunch very simple, chicken, ham, lots of prawns and a selection of salads and maybe a hot potato dish. I have just never cooked a turkey, when I was younger my grandmother always cooked duck and pork for Christmas.

    Honchey my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on this important day for you, there is certainly a lot to be thankful for.

    QuiltE you will just have to wait a little longer I am about to dash out the door to head to my embroidery club for the day, but of course had to pop in to say hi to everyone

    What a terrible accident in Texas, it made our news this morning.

    All is well here; everyone came, saw, ate, divided up the leftovers, put the Great Room back to the way it was before, washed up most of the dirty dishes and went home. So you all divide the leftovers in the virtual RV...the ham, the turkey, the chicken and the dressing (two kinds), the baked beans, green beans with jowl & bacon, sweet potatoes, 5 cup salad, pies and brownies. Enough left here to do us a whole week and a half.

    No, I have to have my kitchen if I am expected to cook; afraid that would be grounds for divorce with me. But each to their own and what they are happy with. Dh shows (as I do ) that we eat well. bf's daughters were quick to thank us for hosting the group so they could visit with their Mother & Father today. They were amazed at how BIG my kitchen is; most fun today was watching the daughters and granddaughter working in my kitchen...Guys got into a bit of the action too. Very informal, just ask where an item was, and I would point or tell them where it was in the kitchen. Funny, bf was telling my dh were some plates went today!! No one felt 'crowded' today with 19 people moving about in the kitchen or great room...little boys were running outside to see the guineas and ducks and chickens. Poor cats...between the two little dogs and kids, they disappeared during their visit here.

    Thanks for the carrot recipe, Carrie...not what I would ever think of, but I love carrots and will try that delicious sounding recipe. Love the exchange of ideas here.

    Turkey got done in good time but we didn't go wild with the fixings. Just stuffing and cranberry sauce besides the usual peas and baked sweet potatoes. We did finish it all off with pumpkin pie. Ummmmmm. It was such a beautiful day here we climbed in the truck and just wandered the back roads for a couple of hours. Thoroughly enjoyable. Once home, i cleaned the kitchen, straightened my sewing room and checked Bonnie Hunter's blog to make sure she wasn't having an early Black Friday posting of her first clue for Easy Street. Nope.
    QNSue...it sound like your guest thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality. It would have been fun to be a little fly on the wall.
    JanR.... Right now things are pretty neat on the surface but so many things half done!

    We had a nice day today too...left here around 11 and got home around 5. The weather was beautiful here today too. The guys went outside for a while and started a fire to sit around while visiting.

    I have a husband that starts projects and doesn't always finish as quickly as I might. I too have learned the relationship is much more important. It would be hard if it was the kitchen, but since dh does as much cooking as I do, I doubt that would be a room to wait.

    The carrot casserole was something an older lady brought to a church potluck several years ago. My husband really liked it and asked her to give me the recipe. It is almost a meal in itself.

    Tomorrow we don't have much going on (no shopping here!), so should be able to spend some time in the clubhouse. YAY! I have a demo to prep for and then Rosie blocks to catch up on. I am working on squaring up my PC blocks here and there....I bring my tv tray/ironing board in and press a few while watching tv, then trim them down when I am back up in the clubhouse. After the demo a week from Saturday and 2 table runners, I am done with stuff I *have to* do so can get back to working on my PC quilts.

    Whether celebrating with the multitudes (or as a couple, looks like some happy times were had today!

    QNSue ... what a grand day ... and nice that everyone feels so at home that they just do their part and let you tell them where to find things! I had to laugh at your BF telling your DH where to put things in "his" kitchen!

    GGal ... yea for a road trip!! I did that with a friend yesterday ... we had a few errands to do in Menno country, so along with that came some good back road touring!!

    MiraB ... I'll be patient! I can understand your not cooking turkeys in the heat ... it takes so long, so the heat in your home would be terrible. I know some here who do turkeys on the BBQ, in order to keept the oven space for other things. Another friend bought one of the portable roaster ovens and has found it to be a great entertainment asset. She doesn't have a huge kitchen, so it often gets put out into the garage to keep the space for other things.

    QNSue ... with all your cooking ... something you may need? ^^ ?

    CarrieM ... your DH was pretty sly "please give my wife the recipe!". Wondering? do you always make it with cooked carrots? or what about using thawed frozen carrots?

    Football? ... and how many of you played football? Isn't that supposed to be an American Thanksgiving Day tradition? And watch football?

    Well I'm home & sooooo very full.

    QE ta answer your question about football: I got ta listen ta my Houston Texans play, go inta overtime & finally win, for the first time on Thanksgiving Day. Usually we are at my DM's house & the TV is in the other room & the guys usually have the Cowboys on. (I really don't like Jerry Jones & I refuse ta support him. So I have my Texans.) I cooked ta day & the Texans were on where I could hear 'em, & some times I even snuck a peek at the game. It wouldn't have happened if we had had Dinner (at noon) instead o' Supper (at 6:00pm.)

    DGM is still in the hospital. I sure hope she can go home tamarrow.
