Today was Grouchy picture day. She kept sleeping in the cutest positions, that I had to take her picture. Of course she is the cat that does not like her picture taken & if sleeping when she hears my camera turn off, she will wake up & give me the evil look or just get up & move. So I have to sneak up on her
Grouchy tuckered out after chasing these three mice. Of course she is sleeping/guarding them anybody touches them & she is up & ready to chase again
Grouchy was looking so cute sleeping on my half made bed. I tried to take a picture & she yawned in the middle of it. OR what she really is doing is saying "MOM!! I'm trying to sleep here, lose the camera"
I caught her later

No, I do not sell Pamper Chef, but love their stone ware & this is why. I baked chicken breast with a coating in my oven. Not all the breast would fit in my Pamper chef stone pan, so had to use my little Pyrex also. Both pans were cook together, same chicken, same time & temp. This is what my Pyrex pan looked like at the end of baking the chicken (took a good 2hr soaking to get it clean)
This is what my Pamper chef baking pan looked like. After soaking in hot water for 5 min. it came clean very easily. By the way ladies, I do not have a dish washer, so my husband & I wash the dishes. My husband will gladly clean my Pamper chef stoneware any day because they are so easy to clean.

I helped fix & serve Thanksgiving dinner to around 55 - 60 seniors at our church. This is a tradition at my church & I love helping with it. This year I was able to cook one of the turkeys. What was also neat was the three home school families in our church were able to come & help. The kids (8 of them) along with one of the moms were in charge of fixing drinks. They also help serve the meal & refills. They did a great job & had fun visiting with the seniors of our church.

After working in the morning, I spent the afternoon helping my husband process deer. Here we have six - 2 lbs. roast ready to go to the freezer. These are from the doe our friend shot. We also ended up with 20 lbs. of roast from the buck my son shot. Those roast will be made into jerky after Thanksgiving. We didn't weight the steaks but from both deer we also made 33 lbs of hamburger.

With my boys coming home for Thanksgiving break & more deer hunters coming for the weekend, I needed to make an easy breakfast that could be taken to the woods to eat. So I tried a new recipe - Gluten Free Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins. My boys loved them. Had no idea they were gluten-free. The recipe is at this link http://goodcooking-semperfi.blogspot.com/

My goal today was to get a picture of the sunset. It was a beautiful day & even got up to 68F degrees, not normal November weather for this area. So about 10 minutes before schedule sunset (according to the internet) I look out my window & saw the sky starting to glow with the evening colors. I got in my jeep & drove 3/4 mile to the southwest edge of town. But the time I got there these clouds were rolling in, & in 2 to3 min the temps dropped from 68 to 48. This is why we have tornado in this area. Oh well, here is my sunset for today. (ha, ha, ha)
Hope you all had a great week. I'm looking forward to this coming week - Thanksgiving celebration, my boys home & the Christmas tree goes up on Friday!!! God Bless & have a great week.
