Happy Thanksgiving! The holiday season shall now commence! It all starts with a personal favorite – an all out shopping spree. I used to Black Friday bargain hunt in the wee hours of the morning tromping from store to store.
These days however, I take a more laid back approach and choose to shop online and avoid the masses while scoring great, maybe even better, bargains. I can’t really brag this year that I’m pretty well done with my shopping before December even rolls around. It’s still early in the weekend and I still have hope that by the time I crawl into bed on Cyber Monday that I can be nearly done.
Thursday was laid back for the hubbs and I . We had stuffed shells and home made bread and salad for dinner. The whole turkey shebang with family is on Saturday.
Today is a day for making carrot cake for Saturday and a batch of cookies for me. I love oatmeal raisin cookies and I happen to make some pretty good ones. Sometimes I soak the raisins in rum, but the rum is gone! Hmm..don’t know how that always happens LOL.
If you’re in the mood for Awesome Carrot Cake please visit the I Am Baker blog. Love her recipes!!!
Back to shopping!
