On days like these I always remember when I was a kid and how Mom would make everything so nice and snugglely!
Warm fuzzy blankets and the cozy couch. Hot chocolate and a snack of homemade cookies. One of my favorite was her oatmeal raisin cookies YUMMY !! right out of the oven was the best!

There is nothing better then the smells of baking in the kitchen. I sure everyone would agree. The thing I really enjoyed the most was helping her make the cookies. It brings me back each time I would see my son or my niece help her, as my sister and I use to .I think most of the flour was on them,then in the cookies,but that is part of the fun and it always turned out GREAT !
Today is the perfect day to spend on the couch curled up in your favorite blanket and family.Flip through some photo albums or pop in the family movies,and spend the day down memory lane .
Now that the holidays are near and people are sharin recipes you all might like this one,it make the season a little more jolly!
Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a
stuffing -- imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it
was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell
when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.
8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is Good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT) Salt/pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter
salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in
baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.
Listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey's ass blows the
oven door open and the bird flies across the room, it's done.
HAPPY EATING !!!!
