I had a great morning and early afternoon today. It started with a performance with a small brass group from The Salvation Army in Lothian, Maryland, at a red kettle…the first of the season. That’s right, Christmas is beginning before we even have Thanksgiving! After a couple hours at the kettle, I stopped at the Amish Market in Annapolis on my way home. They had loads of fresh spinach…so there’s some Spicy Red Sauce with Spinach in my cooking future!!
I’ve also got to get ready for our Love Feast covered dish dinner at church tomorrow. While my mom and dad are traveling to Atlanta to be with my sisters’ families for Thanksgiving, my preacher specifically asked for dad’s macaroni and cheese. So, I’m on the hook for that and a double green bean casserole. Have I mentioned how much I love to cook?! But I really can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week already. Where has my Fall gone? And, if you find it, you might as well keep it, because Christmas is already banging on the front door!!
I think I’m going to try another new jam recipe today, too. I have a scrumptious looking recipe for Carrot Cake Jam. Sounds too interesting to not try. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
Now…it’s time for a Saturday afternoon nap (right after I put on my sauce to cook for the rest of the day!).
