Debby, sorry to hear your news

Carolyn, oh poor little Alex, hope all goes well for him.

You gals are cooking up a storm and wow, done with Xmas shopping Sandy! Good thing we have cut way back on gift giving, I just don't like doing it anymore and always hated the wrapping.

Thanks for the support on FB gals when I post about my toffee, made 15 lbs in the last 24 hours. :
Judy, love reading your posts, you always cheer me up and make me laugh

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and or friends and be safe in your travels.

Yes, MK, just melt the CC in the broth. So yummy!!
And prayers for your DH that it's not something serious.

Another busy day today and then tomorrow will be "cooking day." I just hope my back holds up.

Good morning..

Alex's big surgery is this morning..Poor little guy..I hope it makes it through okay..but if something happens, then I'm resolved to that.. He is 16..Thanks for your thoughts and prayers..

What??? Melt the CC in the chicken broth? Did I miss that????? I have a turkey carcass in the freezer and chicken broth in the cupboard and cream cheese in the fridge. That must be a God thing....

Yes, it is really weird not having Alex around this morning. You do get used to having them around..Hopefully, he won't have a cone of shame..

Yes, MK..let's hope and pray that they can resolve your dh's health situation.

Debby: So much to do when a loved one passes..Praying that you get through this time and enjoy the holiday with family.

Buffy, honestly, you are amazing..I hope you make tons of money making that wonderful toffee..We need a LC version..

I'm pretty sure the low carb version of Buffy's toffee is looking at the pictures of it on Facebook, lol. It looks sooooo good I think I might gain weight just by looking!

Sometimes I like to chop green onion tops into my CC and broth soup. You have to give it a try, for sure!

The vet called. Alex is fine. It was a type of skin cancer but it came off clean. I think he will have a pretty big scar and no cone of shame. Hurray!! I will get him tomorrow afternoon.

I love green onion in my chicken broth. Just made those cranberry walnut cookies. Easy and good. The recipe made 36. Gotta freeze them quickly.

Thanks, Buffy, for the input on the magic eyes....I think Gary will be very happy not to wear the glasses he has been wearing for the last 40 plus years..I will be, too, when my cataracts are ready..LOLOL..

Taking Alex to the vets tomorrow..I hate to, but he has had a cyst that is looking funky.
If it means surgery, then with his kidney problems, I will ask for a gentle anesthetic (for me). Dh will go with me, so that is always good..

Got my jammies on at 5 o'clock..LOL..

I do think I will be wearing lots of purple next Saturday..Poor KU..They were beat in
3 degree weather by Iowa...No points for them. They should have stayed warm in the locker room and drank hot chocolate instead of freezing to death for a goose egg.
So happy Alex did well with his surgery. Our little elderly kitties!

Sorry ladies I've looked everywhere for that chia pudding (lemon). I'm now thinking it was on the back of the chia seed bag that I bought at TJ's. I'll send it along when I buy another bag. Cindy? Maybe you can help with the recipe???

We'll be having Thanksgiving with inlaws this Thanksgiving. I will be bring my pumpkin pudding made with Chia seeds for my desert so all is well and covered on this end. Weight is dropping steady so I'm smilin' Ketogenic diet is the one that's doing it along with taking HTP-5 a couple of times a day. I've found my notch and hanging on for dear life. Ha!

I'm so glad Alex's surgery came out on the plus side. He is such a trooper and has a great Mommy to care for him now.

Buffy that toffee looks amazing!

Time to head to the TV and see what's on my list. Take care.

*whew* So glad to hear about Alex.

Sharon - congratulations congratulations congratulations!
Ketogenic was perfect for me, too.
Ahem. *is*.
I promise I still eat that way.

I made some peanut butter fudge yesterday. My mom is crazy about peanut butter and we're hoping this will sound good to her.

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (I used Smucker's Natural)
1 stick butter, unsalted
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup DaVinci SF Vanilla syrup

Melt pb with butter in microwave or on stove top, stir in cream cheese, stir in SF syrup.
I put mine in an 8x8 then cut into 20 pieces, +/- and store in refrigerator.
I think this recipe is all over the internet, so I don't know who should get credit, sorry.

Sharon thank you for looking for that recipe. But if you think Sandy and I are going to forget.... we won't.

There's not one of you that doesn't make me smile. Thankful for all of you.

Happy the pooch is doing well!
Mine too... Molly is wearing out all the dogs here... 3 large, one small, then the neighbors 2 on one side & one on the other side... the goats... and anyone who looks like they'd like to play. At one point she got the bigger dogs to chase her... no way could they catch her! During the boring times of day (when the other dogs are sleeping)... she's burying their bones in mole hills!
We didn't do much today. It seems SIL needed a break from the emotions of going through stuff... Did get my exercise done... not much else.
Hope everyone has a joy-filled thanks-giving!

Good morning!

It sounds like Molly is in charge wherever she goes. How fun and a good distraction for all during this sad time.

I love peanut butter. Will have to try this recipe. Thanks , Judy.

Need to go to the gym this morning. Bad.

Anxious to see the big kids tomorrow.

I pick up Alex this afternoon. I'm sure he will happy to be home.

I'm off to DD's house today. This is our pre-T-day cooking day. Since she's started have the dinner I always go over and help her and DGD and her best friend and whoever happens along helps too. We usually end the day with a little wine and it's always a fun day along with being very productive. I wish I'd had a day like that all those years that I was the one fixing the dinners, lol. Oh well, I'm pretty sure it's now a tradition that will continue in the family long after I'm gone, which makes me happy.
Have a great day everybody!

Judy, thanks for the recipe. PB fudge is DH's absolute fav!!!

Sandy - I would look so much more forward to today if I had people come over to help and we ended with wine and smiles... I'm thinking it's something I will work toward. I like preparing a few of the obvious dishes the day before - makes the day itself so much nicer.
Thanks for sharing that.

Re: pb fudge - I think some people add vanilla protein powder. I did not.
It might give it more body or structure.
SS and I are pushing each other out of the way to get at it so I think I'll leave ours as-is.

Buffy, did we ever think of the reason I thought I needed a giant container of corn bran? It is Thanksgiving and soon will be Christmas, and that giant bag of corn bran is taunting me and offending me.
It better watch out.
I wonder if it might add a texture or taste of corn to faux cornbread?

Carolyn I hope Alex's return home is nice for all of you. Bless his heart and yours.

Judy,
scalestepper posted about using corn bran in her almond meal cornbread recipe. I did a search for corn+bran and found lots of posts so hopefully something in there will make it click for you. I tried to link it here but apparently have forgotten how to do that.
Somebody is also making tortillas with it? When you find out why you bought it, please let us know so we can figure out if we need to buy some too, lol.

HA HA HA! Watch out! I'll probably just send some to you!
I burdened Buffy with some about a year ago and neither of us could remember what/why I bought that behemoth.

I'll search for it - tortillas sure sound good. I keep saving various tortilla recipes but never make them - so far...

Happy "almost" Thanksgiving day to all of you!
All I have to fix is cranberry relish and that is done and in the fridge. We are going to my step daughters home. Glad that is all I had to make, I had some toffee orders to fill today and a unexpected order today for 2 1/2 lbs, so made 5 more lbs and did the deliveries. I already have orders for 10 lbs next week

So glad little Alex is doing well, bet he is glad to be back home with his Momma

Sharon, so happy to hear keto is working well for you, it really did for me too, ahem, that is when I was doing it

Sandy, I really like the way your family handles the meal prep, great tradition.

Molly seems to be quite the fun loving ring leader

Judy, I always loved PB fudge, yum

At this time of year I always have these thoughts of having Norman Rockwall holidays . Did those ever really take place or was he high on something?? I don't live in a six bedroom Victorian, my kids and all my grandkids can never all come at the same time, it seldom snows in TX, there have been a few divorces, remarriages, one son-in-law is from Canada so it really isn't thanksgiving to him, oh heck, give it up Buffy

Have a wonderful day tomorrow, each and every one of you!

Hi ladies,

Alex is doing great. His scar is about 5 inches long. The cost for this whole thing was. $130!! I couldn't believe how cheap it was. Maybe we should all go to vets.

Anxious to try Affare today. 2 pm reservations so I ate a big breakfast to tie me over.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!!!!

Judy: Brett found an apt in a place called Mission Hills in BA. Next week is going to be crazy.

Brett's move is a self move (again ). He will find a few friends to help his old parents from lifting too much!!! Dh has eye surgery Tuesday in OK city so he will move on Fri or Sat. AKK.

Hugs all around!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you wonderful, smart, funny people!

Carolyn, I hate the idea of Gary moving anything with eye surgery.
Friends for moving are the best idea and I think Brett's parents can help with pizza!

DH is working at home and I am trading off time with mother with my sister, but if I can help, even for a little while, let me know. Do you still have my number? Let me know and I'll give it to you if not.

Hi

I don't think Gary should lift anything either. Will double check with the dr

Nice Thanksgiving. Went to the Judy Dench movie. It was good. True story, too

At Barnes and Noble on the way home.

Hi all! We had a great Thanksgiving. Lots of good food, friends and family. And no drama! A wonderful day!

But today I keep thinking about the "corn bran dilemma", lol. I did a search here at LCFs using "corn+bran+tortilla" as the search terms and came up with several very tasty sounding recipes/ideas for using the corn bran. So Judy, please check those out and see if any of them ring your bell as to why you bought the corn bran. Honeyville is having a big sale this week and I think I need some more oat fiber and just might need to order some corn bran to go along with it.

I think it had something to do with corn bread.
When I was going through my Thanksgiving recipes I saw a couple I thought I wanted to try last year.
If you get some corn bran, warning: it is a giant bag.

Oat fiber is always good to have on hand. That is a good sale from Honeyville (now that I just bought 2- 5lb. bags of almond flour! )

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful, too.
BABIES!

Maybe I could send you some $$ and you could send me a tiny little bag to try?? You keep scaring me with "it's a giant bag full", lol. Some of those posts make it sound fabulous! But I don't always have to best luck with some of those recipes.

Glad your T-day was great. Babies make everything better, don't they?

The DGS born 10/2 is now throwing his head back and laughing.
How can this be??
He and DGD have been smiling only a little bit, but laughing??
DD said it was like they were cracking jokes together.
Not sure what could be better than a baby's laugh.

Question for you cooks, please.
I have the turkey carcass but nothing else to throw in the pot for broth.
How much water do I use?
I mean, I wouldn't cover it with water, right?
