Started getting ready for our Thanksgiving feast today. Since kids et al
are coming on Sunday the 24th I figured to do the easy stuff today. Got
the eggs boiled for devilled eggs, will make them on Sunday morning as
they are easy. Got the sweet potatoes cooking so I can mash them and get
them ready for sweet tater casserole  with brown sugar, pecans, and
marshmellows. That will be for the youngun's and I'm saving one small
sweet tater for me to eat plain. I was surprised that our supermarket
had 6 varieties of sweet potatoes on sale for 50 cents a lb this year. I
bought Garnet, a variety I'm not familiar with but the taters were
really nice, firm and had a good skin color to them. 

A cake is in the oven and will be ready in about 15 minutes to set out
and cool a bit. I will then ice it and put it in the 40 year old
Tupperware cake saver and set it aside. Along with a couple of pies that
should appease the clan sweet tooth. Boy, I sure do like cooking for my
whole family.

Life is good.
