Growing up I can't count the times my Dad would whip up what he called "Oatmeal Quickies". They are so easy and so yummy. Last night we made them as a family. Aaron and Ace ate sooooo many. I can't believe that they didn't get sick. It was the first time I had ever made them and it brought back such memories--Thanks Dad!!
Ace came in our room today and informed us that Rouge was sick. For those of you who don't know Rouge is our dog. So I asked what was wrong "He needs to go to the doctor, Mom Rouge has Chicken POPS!" What a laugh I got out of this--poor Ace was so serious. He almost looked annoyed that I was laughing at him.
I can't believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! I love this time of year. Today, we planned our menu. We decided this year that we would change things up a bit. We have family coming to visit and thought it would be great to cook some foods that are more "Louisiana Style". So this year a shrimp dish will be included with the main courses. We will still have some of our favorites though. Mike went to the store today to start gathering the goods. Since we do most of the shopping on base, we know that as Thanksgiving gets closer some items will run out. Check back for feedback on how everyone enjoyed our not so "traditional" Thanksgiving.
