I like it. Anyone else? I'd hate to have a forum that was of interest to only 2 people!

SandiW,I think it would go over pretty good since this thread has gone for 3 pages now.
If you think so you go ahead and pick the first 'catagory',
or if you don't want to be the first,
tell me to choose one and I'll start something.
Then we can go from there.
Hows that sound to you????

I finally got to catch up with you! I see that GDG Brian posted on it! Good going!

Back to favorite foods: Pretty much anything!

Recently, I've been on a "chewy" pasta kick. The thick pastas, like buccatini. Rachel Ray showed a great recipe with artichokes and pici (really thick spaghetti pasta) that looked very simple and good. Think I'll give it a try in the next few days.

What's everybody's favorite way to serve cranberries????

As my grand daughter says...

"Uh Uh,not me,I don't like it."

When we ask how she knows she doesn't like it her reply is...

"Cause I've never tried it and I never will."

Confused Shocked Confused Shocked Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Go figure...kids... Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

But I truly DON'T like cranberries.

Soooo - your favorite way to eat cranberries is NEVER! Works for me! Unfortunately they seem to be appearing everywhere. Bet you real a whole lot of labels!

I've discovered that getting older can really change your taste buds. I always hated peppermint - now it isn't as strong and I don't mind it. Still don't like sweet or roasted red peppers, though.

Yes,it does seem like they are everywhere at this time of year.
My mom can fix them 100 (seems like) different ways. Smile Smile
She and my dad (mainly dad) still try to get me to try things.
My dad will HIDE things in the meatloaf,like shredded carrots or bell pepper.
Then call me and tell me he has an extra for me to come and get it.
I get so tickled at them sometimes.
They both have birthdays coming up soon.
My mom will be 71 on Nov.17th and dad will be 80 on Dec.26th.
Since my mom retired in 2009
('bout this time of year) they really can make us laugh.
You should hear them sometimes...then Dad will go to the golf course
and Mom will look at me and say "HE'S drivin' me crazy"
But I couldn't see how... Smile Smile Smile Smile
I'll quit blabbing now and go on to another thread.

ConnieLea: If you ever read any of the "Cat Who...." mysteries, you know that the hero's favorite meatloaf contained a secret ingredient. So - if your dad offers you a meatloaf from the cookbook that was published in 2000, "The Cat Who...Cookbook" BEWARE - the secret ingredient is 1/2 can of cranberry sauce! Actually, it's a good addition! It is used in place of ketchup to cover the loaf.

We are moving into the holiday season - so I'm starting to fill my refrigerator with ingredients to make "take along" spreads and dips. Today's purchase was frozen artichoke (okay, that really is a staple here) and goat's milk cheese to make a really super artichoke dip!

Hope everyone is looking forward to the fun (and incredible amount of work!) of the next several weeks!

SandiW,unfortunately this year our get togethers will be scaled down some.
My mom is having some problems with her legs and hips
and can't stand long enough to do what she would like to do.
Needless to say all of us pitching in won't work,
she's always done the big parts herself.
We were allowed to bring things like drinks,ice and cups...not food. Smile Smile
We may try to surprise them this year
(and hope we don't get into trouble) Smile Smile
and just all of us show up at the same time with everything we need.
Brother & I are discussing it...

Don't be too busy to enjoy Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

In 2010 I had surgery on my left wrist in early December. In 2011 I had the same surgery on the right wrist the week before Thanksgiving. The two surgeries broke my habit of doing it all! Good thing. My adult children now automatically pitch in to do stuff. My husband and I plan to do the meat and the rest of the family will fill in with everything else. Since I have use of my hands this year, I'll be making pies for Thanksgiving and gingerbread for Christmas.

You Mom will enjoy having everyone around and will probably not be too upset to have the work taken off her shoulders.

Hope everyone has a joyous holiday season - it begins in just a few days!

Yes,the holidays are upon us without a doubt.
We used to do the 'everyone bring something' deal when my grandfather was still with us,
but then we had his 4 children,their spouces,
their children and their spouces and their children if any.
Up to 4 generations...
22 was the highest count that I remember.
But once we lost Pa it shifted to each of his children having just their own kids and grandkids and maybe some of the others dropping in for coffee and desert later on.
It was a huge change after all my 35 years.
To top it off...today is my moms' birthday...
and we have dads the day after Christmas. (aren't we lucky?) Smile Smile Smile Smile
Just kiddin'...we are luckier than some just to still have them with us.
Don't overdo it on those pies...someone might eat too much. Smile Smile Smile Smile
Like that would ever happen. Smile Smile Smile Smile

I don't have a large family here - including the grandchildren (6, 3.5 and1.5 - who don't eat too much) there are only 9 of us for dinner. However, I've always made enough for everyone to have leftovers - including desserts! So, it is pieS, birdS, potatoS, etc!

At this time of year - I love things that can be made, refrigerated and eaten cold; such as a large bowl of shrimp salad, tuna salad, egg salad. Just add a tossed salad to it, some bread and dinner is served. This leaves time for all the other stuff that has to get crammed into the schedule during the next 6 to 8 weeks!

SandiW,I don't know why I've never thought about
tuna salad and egg (and olive) salad for meals during this time.
It would beat just 'ole ham or bologna sandwiches.

If my count is right...there are 12 at Mom & Dad's when we get together.
That's only half of what it used to be.
And sometimes it would be less than half.
