Five Friday Happy Bringers 11/26/21

1. Robert and I enjoyed a big ole modern family Thanksgiving celebration with daughters Amy and Emily (and their fams) and ex-wife/great friend Donna.

And a pic that defines Awkward Family Photo …

I had just made some silly, jokey remark, and grandson Daniel was the only one who thought it was funny. He thought it was REALLY funny.

2. Cranberry sauce. More specifically, MY cranberry sauce. With allspice, brown sugar, fresh squeezed oj and zest.

3. My aging, sometimes achy and imperfect but wonderful body.

{No pic until said imperfect body is perfect. Do not expect body pics in the foreseeable future.}

4. Robert’s sometimes odd but always delicious soups (which he often makes up on the fly). This time, Baby Bok Choy and Shrimp.

5. The countdown to Christmas. We put up our Travel Tree last night, Thanksgiving night—a tradition. What’s a Travel Tree, you ask? It’s a Christmas tree, with each ornament from one of our travels. (More about the Travel Tree on my blog each day during December.)

Happy Last Weekend in November!

What are you thankful for this day?

  1. Starting off this Friday morning with the right frame of mind … happiness and gratitude! 1. Turkey gravy. 2. Taking family picture when I didn’t want to but it was fun and turned out great. 3. My kitty cat purring on my lap this morning. 4. Sleeping until 8 am (past-military mornings were 5 am). 5. Starbucks coffee from my Keurig ☕️!

      1. If y’all can cook a turkey, you can make bone broth. Have a crock pot? Put in the turkey carcass, fit the crock with water, and add 1/4 – 1/2 c apple cider vinegar. Stir every few hours. Let boil for 24 hours. Done! Eat or freeze for future use.

    1. Here’s how I make it. 16 oz cranberries, 3/4 cup brown sugar (I don’t like it too sweet), juice from 1/2 orange, zest from 1/2 orange, 1 1/2 cups water, 1 teaspoon allspice. Combine all and bring to boil with cranberries popping. Reduce to medium for about 15 minutes or desired consistency.
