    ThanksGiving cooking...

    I use to get up in the wee hours and cook n bake everything in one day...
    Well I have gotten wiser as I have gotten older..
    Now I cook/bake for 4 days .. It really makes it so much less stressful for me...

    Monday I started my breads for the stuffing Yes I bake my own breads ,we stopped buying store crappy breads..I also made yeast Dinner rolls..

    Tuesday I baked a Pumpkin Pie from our own pumpkins... You can see we had already hit the pie ... See next to the flowers...

    [​IMG]

    Wed I made the stuffing, The greenbean casserole, Fresh whole cranberry sauce, And mashed up the Cauliflower (NO white potatoes this year) also made a pudding pie from scratch...I don't use package pudding (yuck)

    [​IMG]

    Thursday morning I start it up early..With making a few snacks for the day...

    Don makes the devil eggs...

    [​IMG]

    I make the candied Yams, put the turkey in my rotisserie around noon...


    [​IMG]


    About 40 mins before the bird is ready I stick the other stuff back in the oven...Of course it did have a tent on them...

    [​IMG]


    I start my meatless gravy


    [​IMG]


    The Turkey is ready,I let it spin for a while with out heat....

    And dumped 15" on us .. LOL The weathermen called for only 3" ..:lol3

    Ok HB doesn't have his helmet on yet... But by the time he was finished blowing the drive,and some of you know how long it is..He wished he had it on ...

    Great pix Tracy, I love your place...I've waiting to read this or "think" it, it's my favorite for this time of year, Robert Frost of course:

    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound's the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    Happy Holidays pal. Give D a big squeeze from all of us, and take one for yourself.

    Very fitting for today too...
    The shortest day of the year !!!

    We did get to see a glimpse of the Lunar eclipse :norton

    Well we got up at 2:30 am we had a light cloud cover spitting light snow , But at 3:10 the moon would barely peek in and out..
    We hung outside till 3:20 ...
    Got to see a grand deep orange orb ...
    And then the clouds blotted it out again ..

    Well I was glad we got out to ride on Jan 6th... As we have been snowed in
    again ever since...
    The total of snow fall since Dec 4th.. is :drums 67" and counting..
    All I can say is thank goodness it's NOT all on the ground right now.. Just about 8" left.. The cool thing is the driveway is almost clear enough to get a bike out :clap ...

    I will be posting some more RR's ... Stay tunes :evil:deal

    The paperwork proof and $$$ is for the IBA ..(Iron Butt Asso.)
    So they can prove your route, and then send you a sticker,license plate holder,and a doc that is suitable for framing and a Member's number...
    I hope that helps.....

    Sorry I did see your post sooner... Thanks for the bump..

    I have to get cracking on my RR's... Winter has been a bear ...

    A few weeks ago we heard :ear
    What sounded like a Howl at night... :yikes
    Now we know what coyotes sounds like and this was NO coyote..:nono
    The last few weeks, I have found some tracks..
    Now there are NO big dogs in our area...
    So we did a little investigative reporting and found out...
    That the Gov. had released Wolves in our area...

    Don saw his first set of tracks the other day...
    I saw a few sets already with my walks in the woods, looking for dead trees to cut down...

    Well the other day I was walking ... And this time I had my camera!!:clap
    Note the shape of this print,it's nothing like a dog and to big for a coyote of fox.....Plus it's way to pointy..

    [​IMG]

    Look at how big this print it...This is a fresh print in hard pack ..So no spreading in soft snow..

    [​IMG]

    The width is right too...

    [​IMG]

    I walked off the stride of the Wolf track,and it has a 6 1/2 ft - 7 ft. stride!! ...

    It's kinda of cool.. But now we have to really watch tha cows when they calve..Soon like in the next few weeks... They should be syn.. so all should calve with in a week of each other....

    I just wanted to share, it's a strange feeling when you see one for the first time in the SouthEast !!
    As you know right away it's NOT a dog....

    LOL what's next Big Foot !!!

    My Gosh I love my mountain....
    Here's a nice sun set for ya'll
    Yes we do have a nice slice of heaven on earth!!

    I took these the other evening.....

    Highbinder and I went to the CatHerders Campout II..
    This was our first time to this event.. We missed last years...

    It was in an area that we where familiar with as we use to live 80 Miles from there..

    The campout was at a cool place... It use to be a ski resort way back when..
    The old ski lift was still there .

    [​IMG]

    Riders kept rolling in ....

    [​IMG]

    Tents were all over the place.

    [​IMG]

    There where banners...That said it all...

    [​IMG]

    Friday night was BBQ Capri aka Martin....

    [​IMG]

    ScottP was the man in charge with tending to Martin...
    And what a fine job he did too...

    HBN was there for support.. Showing the love!!
