Crock Pot Sunday, Cubby lends a hand.
One of the things I love about this time of year is cooking warm meals of stew, soup, chili, or crock pot favorites. This is cubby stirring shrimp into the gumbo after he helped me clean them. He has gotten the knack of 'pinch & pull' when detailing and shelling shrimp and crawfish. He has been a helper in our kitchen since he was in diapers. The best way to combat picky eaters is getting them to: plan, shop, chop, cook, and clean.
I hope ya'll are having a wonderful week. Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving? We usually just do a in-ground roasted turkey with a few sides and dessert. Have you got all your holiday shopping done? I am happy to say that I have finished all the boys gifts. Thank You! internet. I don't do Black Friday because it is so not worth the hassle.
We still have not found the cat from our last post but, we keep looking for it. Sad thing is, I am afraid it has died by now without the neighbor finding it. Our neighbor works extremely late into the night and is gone most days before sun-up. So I am sending a little positive energy into the universe hoping he was able to free himself.
How are ya'll enjoying The Walking Dead or American Horror Story? My favorite character this season is Carol. I am glad to see her transition into a 'hard-nose survivor.' Most of the time I am on team Rick or Michonne. I currently have all ten hard bound copies of the entire comic series and usually reread them all throughout the year. On American Horror Story, Twisty the Clown is already dead but, I still am enjoying this Freak Show season mainly because of Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Angela Bassett, and Kathy Bates; those women rock the show each season.
So, what are ya'll looking forward to in the new year?
