I'm just trying to figure how much and which snackies I should make for our Star Wars movie marathon... and how to make an entire Thanksgiving dinner in snack form so that we don't have to leave the couch...
Sounds like a great time! How about Hawaiian roll sliders, (turkey and cranberry), stuffing fingers with green bean casserole dip and mashed potato poppers. I would love a challenge like that.

I set the table today for our meal tomorrow. With 6’ spacing between two couples, we’re maxed out at a table that usually seats 8-10. I set salt & pepper & butter for each end, and I guess we’ll use different sets of serving utensils when we serve ourselves in the kitchen (one couple at a time...). I’m still hoping we can eat outside. They’re calling for 70 deg, which will be fine, but also a chance of rain. Setting the table makes it feel a little festive, as do these turkeys my son and I made when he was little.

Good Choice' I cant see exposing ourselves to possible covid' If its not absolutely necessary. I dont even like going to the grocery store! I use every precaution not to cross contaminate when I do, tell the Family the same. We cant be careful enough.
Change of plans' because of the spike in corona virus I felt it was to much of a chance to have even a small Family Thanksgiving Dinner! " It Takes A Village" is my thoughts to overcome this dreadful virus. Blessings to you & yours Happy Thanksgiving 🙏🏼💞.

Happy Thanksgiving! I’ll be spending it alone as sadly I was exposed to the Rona. I’m cooking dinner so that my daughter can come pick it up. We will be zooming for dinner.
Ugh sorry to hear that. Hope you are recovering well from surgery and that the C19 exposure turns out to be a nothing burger for you. 💐

When we lived in Virginia, we'd have gatherings of 15 to 21 friends at Thanksgiving. Since we've moved to the country, the most we've had is 6. With COVID we had exactly none this year, but still had a good time putting on a spread for ourselves and had much fun putting together a meal package for an older gentleman up the road who had nowhere to go due to COVID. We made sure to keep the cold separate from the hot items that could be reheated, so he could easily throw out the cold items if he wished. Hubby said he was most excited to receive his Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings.IMG_8585.JPG

So sorry that you had to eat alone with daughter on Zoom. Your family must set a date in the future to have a celebration meal! I hope this quarantine just turns into a much needed vacation for you.

I'm sure he did! What a great thing you did! And I have to ask - did you get a ladder out to take this shot?

My holiday meal lol. A turkey hoagie and cranberries lol. I had work overnight Sun mon tues, and it takes me a few days to recover. I bought chicken, cranberries and broccoli to make, but when i started pulling everything out of the fridge to cook, i decided to order door dash lol. I did make the cranberries though. Been waiting for them for a year lol,

I did indeed use my little step ladder. :)

@lenarenee probably a selfie stick ;)
Alas, I only have an ipad, and not a smart phone, so I used a ladder. You can just see it in the lower left of the shot. :) I'd love a smart phone, but I twitch/shake just enough that I find it almost impossible to key in a phone number or type on them! Silly things. LOL

As a newbie to soap making, I've had myself thinking mostly about the right oils to mix and which to start with. I however went for the 100% pko because I wanted to see how it turns out. IMG_20201128_004717.jpg

Oh and I used a soapcalc to get the required weights for my recipe. After 24hours the soap was looking good and I unmolded but accidentally ruptured a few. I know this recipe is probably not good for bathing as it will definitely deprive the skin of lots of oils but what do you think about having it as a laundry soap.

Here is the recipe tooScreenshot_20201128-201010.png
