Oh no I hate to hear that your husband feels that Cracker Barrel is unhealthy. I usually only go there when on special trips once or twice a year. But thought we could get a good turkey dinner there.

I am sure when you give your dad that licorice he will know just how much you do love him. He will know where you had to go to purchase it.

I love Cracker Barrel, but my husband used to work there and so he knows exactly how unhealthy their food is. emoticon He'll hardly ever go there with me anymore, even though it's right down the streen from our apartment. emoticon

I hope my dad knows just how much I love him because of the fact that I'm actually going to venture into the mall to buy his Christmas present....

There was much rejoicing!

Not sure if anyone in the family is going to have special thanksgiving dinner but I saw a recipe today for Pumpkin Mousse. Sounds so easy and no cooking with a graham cracker crust. Gonna try it in a pie shell and see how it comes out. If no special dinner plans then my son and I will go to Cracker Barrel for dinner and come home to this pumpkin desert.

Vali gosh I wish my mall had that licorice. I would go and get me some. Sounds delicous. Your dad has good taste in candy. LOL

I have most of my Christmas shopping done already, too. I've done most of it online because I'm really not that fond of shopping. Used to love it when I was younger....but I'm not younger anymore. emoticon

I absolutely hate going to the mall, but I'm going to make one trip there on Saturday to buy some really good licorice for my Dad. There's this candy shop there that has 8 or 10 different kinds of licorice. A few years ago I went there and told the gal to give me a few pieces of each kind because I knew that my dad (who just loves licorice) would be thrilled to get that as a Christmas present. And he was. emoticon I gave him slippers that year, too, but I think he liked the licorice the best.

So anyway, on Saturday I'm going to make my one trip to the mall for this Christmas season and then I'm going to make a new recipe that I want to try out. I hope I don't make anyone fall on their face in shock (I really, really hate to cook) but I'm going to cook this dish with green beans and sweet red peppers (a Spark recipe) to see whether or not my husband and I like it. If we do, then I'll make a batch that's 3 or 4 times larger to take to my aunt and uncle's for Thanksgiving dinner. Most years I just pick up a pie at the grocery and take that, but when I saw this recipe posted on someone's blog I decided that I'm going to be brave and try to cook it. (It looks easy enough...famoust last words emoticon )

So anyway, that's what I'm doing on Saturday. Of course you already know what I'll be doing on Sunday....

Enjoy your early Thanksgiving dinner. Just hope someone else does win the race but they will be outshadowed by JJ winning the championship. Oh I know something could happen. But not really much chance of it. Just dont want anyone hurt.

Sounds like you have your Christmas shopping all taken care of. Way to go.

Hi everyone. We're going to a friend's home for dinner Sunday and they are not race fans so I won't be watching the race. Oh well..not the end of the world. They invited us for an early Thanksgiving dinner. Foot ball will be on in the background, which is fine with me as well.

I did my Christmas shopping on line this am and have it finished now. The gifts will arrive at the designated addresses on Dec. 21.

Not much else going on here. Have a good day.

I see whe have a new member. Wish she would introduce herself so we could get to know her. JDRACN is her username.

I have lots of errands to run today. Looking forward to the last race this sunday. Just wish it wasnt such a done deal as to who wins the championship. Wishing for changes for next year. Know lots of you feel this way also

Have a good day nascar fans.
