Is the blogosphere doing OK, now that we've had a day to process the election? Since I don't talk politics, I won't mention it, but know I'm also processing what happened.
On to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have a Friendsgiving every year, and the past couple years I've brought the same thing. Pecan tassies by Martha Stewart. This came about a couple years ago when we were trying to decide what to have for dessert. I don't like pumpkin anything, and a friend doesn't like apple pie, but we still wanted to stay with the Thanksgiving theme. Pecans it was, and I found this recipe in my Martha Stewart cookie book. I'll be making a triple batch because a couple families are hosting hockey players. And those boys can eat.
And can y'all believe Thanksgiving is in exactly 2 weeks? We hit Halloween and bam! holiday season.
Holiday cups are here! I'm not a coffee drinker, and it's still not cold here. It was 51 when I woke up this morning so it's a start. But I love seeing the designs, and I'll get a hot chocolate every now and then. I even have an ornament from a few years past. According to the article, there are 13 designs this year, 11 of which will be available in the US. I like "Evergreen Forest", "Love and Joy," and "Poinsettia."
