May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

A Recipe for Turkey....

HAPPY THANKSGIVING..........Here is a recipe I thought you would like for the holidays

Ingredients: 1 whole turkey

1 large lemon, cut into halve

salt and pepper to taste

butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Rub butter or oil over the skin of the turkey until it is completely coated.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and any other seasonings you prefer.

Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;
Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up, one on
each side. This way the juice from the lemon will release into the breasts.
Cover and bake for 30-45 minutes.

Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes.
If you've followed these steps correctly, your turkey should
look like the one in the picture.Bon Appetit!

As you prepare your pies.....

Been sorta hectic in the Folk-n-Fancy household with two down with the flu last week in my family and one turning into pneumonia. Unfortunately the two with the illness were my son and DIL who were supposed to be moving into their new apartment this past weekend. Needless to say, with help they got moved in about 2/3 and I'm itching to clean up after the moving mess. So while patiently waiting I have been stitching (no pics yet I'm afraid). So while YOU patiently wait and prepare those delicious pies, I thought I would just give you a little reminder of exactly how those pumpkin pies are REALLY made.....ENJOY, YINZ GUYS!

Monday Night Football....

Being it's a Steeler Monday Night Football night for us Steeler Fans, thought I would give yinz guys a little treat with the Steeler Dotee I put together for a swap.
Dotees really push me to be creative as I don't think much on them just start with some material and keep adding. I'm great at following patterns but not at making things up if you know what I mean.
Okay...that's it for now....back to regular scheduled programming yinz guys...till next time! GO STEELERS!
