Because we have the largest abode, Thanksgiving will be at our house again this year. OJM says she is bringing the turkey. She hasn’t told me yet what I am providing. I am not quite certain who else is coming, but the door will be open and the table will be set — sort of.
Actually, Amoeba and I are pretty light on possessions. Somehow we knew our stay in Hawaii would be “short time” and we didn’t collect too much. So, every time we have a get-together we eat off paper plates. That’s why I have been looking at Paula Deen Dinnerware sets and dreaming of serving my guests on real plates.
Another thing I always miss when we have large gathering is my Mini Slow Cooker. I used to have a couple of them and they are great for keeping the side dishes piping hot. Of course, I still have my full-sized slow cooker, but I doubt we will have any 6 quart side dishes!
Even though I won’t have these wonderful conveniences for this holiday season, I have bookmarked shop.com so once we’re back on the mainland, I can stock my kitchen. I have many recipes I haven’t cooked in ages just because I’ve not had the tools that make doing so easy. This holiday season if you are looking for something and don’t want to pay any more for it than absolutely necessary, be sure to check out the comparison shopping feature at Shop.com.
