    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Thanks! We are not huge turkey fans and leg of lamb is always a treat! I make that for Christmas too. Can't go wrong with leg of lamb! Though I know a lot of folks don't care for it. More for me!

    That’s a great menu- especially the mimosa bar! I may use your smoked bacon in the deviled eggs idea. Sounds yummy!

    Smoked bacon is amazing, add some brown sugar to the bacon before you smoke it and now it's candied bacon... next level goodness.

    I learned one thing this Thanksgiving: If you accidentally knock a 34 oz glass bottle of balsamic vinegar out of the lazy susan and it lands on the ceramic tile floor with large grout lines, it becomes a huge, sticky mess to clean up. Those grout lines run under the cabinets and the vinger oozes back out for hours. I had to clean it up with paper towels, mopped three times(once on my hands and knees) over a few hours and I still keeping paper towels where it was oozing while trying to bake and cook. I rarely break anything ever.

    it sounds like it was a good bottle of nice thick balsamic! Ugh!! That hurts!
    If it’s still oozing try Quick Shine Deep Cleaner by Halloway House. It works wonders. I believe that this stuff can even make the devil disappear!
    My second go to cleaner is plain old fashioned liquid Ivory dishwashing soap. I got this tip from a professional detail house cleaner. It really does work.
    ‘Happy day after Thanksgiving to all. We’re all still in a semi food coma here but the leftovers are beginning to call!
