Snuffle, Snuffle

Everyone here has a cold.  I11 is hopefully just about over his since I think he had it first.  K8 doesn't seem too bothered but he is sniffling and snotty nosed.  J14 has been coughing, V has been slightly feverish and snuffly.  I've been having the sinus drainage down the back of the throat for about the last week and, frankly, I'm getting a bit tired of it.  V and I both have to work tomorrow (V only til 1:00) but the kids are all off school until next week.  Hopefully if they get a chance to rest up tomorrow they'll be good to go on Thanksgiving.  We'll have to be careful around all the family so we don't share more than a meal.  
My sister from Colorado and her sons will be at my parent's Thursday- they're bringing the turkey with them so it won't exactly be Iowa local.  I still need to decide what to bring.  My Mom was NO help.  I got the traditional midwestern indecision:  "Whatever you want to bring is fine".  ARRGH!!!


  1. I used to get that remark, and I'd reply with "Cool. I make this really amazing corn and saurkraut dish. That's fine?". Luckily, this usually resulted in "well, how about just a plain vegetable." :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

  2. Ha! Unfortunately that probably wouldn't work at my parent's house. Everyone loves sauerkraut so they would be looking for a corn and kraut dish!!! I'd have to come up with something amazing. I think I'm bringing brussels sprouts in maple butter with toasted walnuts. Pretty tasty. That and a pie.

  3. We actually got a bunch of our friends "turned on" to brussel sprouts! We slice them in half and pan-cook them with some bacon and a splash of balsamic vinegar.


  4. Hmmm, that one sounds great as well. I'll have to try it.


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
