Hello Again!! Finally!!

It has been so long since I have written a post, I don't even know where to begin. I am fine, just haven't had a free minute to breathe. Since I work at a grocery store, I have been working such long days. November - mid January is our busy busy time of the year as you can imagine. Most of my days are at least 14 hours long right now. Then it is try to cook and clean a little and spend as much time with my family as possible.

How was everyone's Thanksgiving?? I hope everyone had lots of food, family, and fun!!! We had a great day with tons of yummy food and got to see some family.

I have so much catching up to do. I don't think I've read a single blog since the very beginning of November. I can't wait to see how all of my blogging friends are and what you have all been up to. I can't wait to see what goodies you have all been making too.

I have tons of new Chandelier crystal ornaments for sale right now. They make really beautiful Christmas Tree ornaments!! I went to my MIL's house today, she just got finished decorating her tree. It was so beautiful. I will have to bring my camera next time I go for a visit. Her entire tree is decorated with gorgeous crystal ornaments and crystal garland. It is so sparly!! I have something new this year, Frosted Crystal Chandelier Ornaments. I haven't seen the frosted crystal anywhere else, and it is so so pretty. Especially for Christmas Tree decor.

I have a great recipe to share with you. It is the perfect use for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner leftovers. It is not exact measurements, just one of those recipes you have to kind of estimate.

Take some leftover turkey meat (about 1 cup) cut it up into small pieces. Do the same with about 1 cup of leftover stuffing. Mix into about 3-4 cups of leftover mashed potatoes. It works best if the potatoes have been refrigerated and are cold (so they are somewhat firm). Mix them all up with a little salt and pepper and add a little seasoned salt and a tiny bit of Adobo(you can substitute garlic powder, but only use a little dash) I also added a little smoked paprika and some seasoned salt, but you can add any spices you like and have available. Form into balls about 1.5" across. Drop into hot oil to fry until nicely golden brown all around. Try to wait until they cool down a little. Me and my kids ate the whole batch of these in only a few minutes. They are sooo good we couldn't stop eating them.

I wish I had some more photos to share with you. I haven't been out to take any cool pics. I am going to try and visit as many blogs as I can. I miss talking with all of you guys so much. I don't even have a Christmas Tree yet. It was snowing all night, but we barely got a dusting. I wish it was colder so we'd have accumulated more. I love it!!!
