Dec 6

We all seem to have survived the Thanksgiving madhouse.  Mama Bear was of course in her element, I think she had a good day, even weekend, since all the kids and local family were around.

The turkeys turned out pretty good, I even held a little of the smoked bird back and sliced it for sandwiches, love that smoked turkey hit…

In the post holiday week I also made my normal stock, but this time I did two separate pots, one from the baked turkey and one from the smoked bird.  I have to admit, while the normal stock smelled great, the smoked pot smelled wonderful.  I am soooooo looking forward to what comes from that down the road…

I on the other hand am enjoying today so much more.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Thanksgiving, but today we are under winter storm warnings, the snow is falling and I feel like winter is finally back.  I miss winter all summer long, I’m a cold weather kind of bear.

Knowing this storm was coming, I managed to put Mama Bear’s car back in the garage.  I had been working on rearranging some things to try to make it more functional during the winter when the car stays in it most of the time, didn’t quite make it, but at least the car is back in and not in the drive covered with ice and snow… 😀

One of the few downsides to working from home is that days like today, when the schools are all closed and people get told don’t come into work, my commute doesn’t get affected, I’ve still go to go down to my office to go to work, so no playing hooky for me… On the bright side, it is Friday, the weekend is upon us!!!
