  1. Hope you had a nice day, E.C.! I laughed when I saw the deviled eggs in your picture! We celebrated at my sister-in-law’s house, and I’m usually asked to bring deviled eggs to any gathering. So, even though I don’t think of them as Thanksgiving day fare, I made them and took them to lunch today!

    • Thanks so much Dianna,
      You made me smile. Deviled eggs are the one food that disappears very quickly at our holiday meals. I think Deviled eggs are decorative to a table. We only make them for picnics or gatherings. I make them simply with miracle whip, mustard and a sprinkle of salt. Yours must be mighty tasty. If you don’t mind my asking, What recipe do you use? 😀


      • I don’t use a recipe: that’s one of the very few dishes I make without one. I just use mayo (or Miracle Whip), a tiny bit of yellow mustard, some pickle relish, salt, pepper and a little sugar.

          The not-needing a recipe is my favorite part. I tried one time to work it out in recipe form, but it didn’t work out. Like you, I prefer just winging it until the right texture and taste is achieved. I hadn’t thought of adding pickle relish or sugar, that sounds like a tasty addition. I may have to try that. Thanks for sharing your recipe, I appreciate it. 😀


    • Hi Dianna
      Yes they are. They’re canned store bought, but we rinse them and cook them down in chicken broth and they taste really good. 😀


    • Thanks so much Sheryl
      I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving too. Ah yes that food lasted only about as long as it took to sit down and give thanks. 😀


  2. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I think Chicken Slow Cooker Pot Pie and Muffin Flats would have made a wonderful feast. Looking back, I am glad to see you are getting the herb garden ready for another year of butterflies! I love your blue birds. They are regulars here. I keep water out for them year round. Now on to Christmas!

    • Thanks so much Mary,
      I hope you had a great Thanksgiving too.
      We plan for next year, to have a separate bed for the fennel and parsley away from the bird baths. We felt awfully bad about that. Before the herb bed with birdbaths, we saw bluebirds only occasionally. A small flock of them visits everyday now. I’m making sure to keep the birdbath clean and filled. Ah yes, we are on-to-Christmas already. The Christmas colors sure does perk up a home and make it more cheerful looking. 😀
