Continued Thanksgiving Preparations

I'm afraid stitching has taken a back seat to Thanksgiving preparations. Today I made a cheese ball. If you were going to make one, if you used this recipe yours would be very similar to mine. (I can't give you our actual recipe because it is my aunt's closely guarded secret, which is actually all over the internet.) (And frankly, I use way more blue cheese than even she calls for!)

Then I cracked open a box of Jiffy mix to make corn muffins. This is step one for Triple Corn Stuffing, out of the Black Family Reunion Cookbook. This stuffing is delicious and decadent, and I only eat it once a year.

BTW, we finally ate the little pumpkin from Farm Share Friday. We had the hazelnut, pumpkin, and feta salad. It was amazing! The dressing totally made it. Be sure to try it. (The pumpkin skin was edible, which was a surprise.) Also, the dude has seen the veggieducken recipe and now he is all gung-ho. If we thought we could get away with it, we'd serve it for Thanksgiving dinner. As it is, it's probably a project for Saturday. Stay tuned!

Thank you for your comments. They keep me going as I near the end of NaBloPoMo. And I am sorry that I still owe a few of you replies. I'll get there!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving where ever it may be. Go ahead and write your Thanksgiving day blog and schedule it. I did! So much easier then being super late in the day or missing it entirely.

A cheese ball with blue cheese?! My family sends their appreciation in advance (we're cave cheese nuts).
