College Spirit

Meet Bosco, my college boy's pup. He's modeling the CSU cycling team's new jersey. I'm sure he's happy for the cover up-- it looks cold. And this dog does like to get under the covers.

Thanksgiving Ideas

I'm casting about for some Thanksgiving recipe ideas.

This cake has the whole meal on one plate. From the originator: "Whether this Thanksgiving centerpiece incites horror, amazement, or confusion when it’s served, it’s certain to evoke some kind of outburst. Warning: This dish is not recommended for people who require an inch of space between food groups." Recipe here.

Thanks to blogger pal Toad, we can also have dessert in like fashion.

Directly from Toad's post: "To stay in the true spirit of the feast offer to bring Cherpumple, the turducken of desserts. Cherumple is a 3 layer cake (yellow, spice, white) with a pie baked in each layer (cherry, pumpkin, apple). Recipes are plentiful, look around, I won't help." Toad also offers other insightful comments, as usual.

The Halloween Post

The Burger King and his queen. This was fun, even as I realized the bright-eyed boy is now about two inches taller than me. Maybe you can tell by the mask in his left hand, he was the Burger King king. Best friend #1 was Ronald McDonald, and #2 best friend was Col. Sanders. They are too funny. My dad came for lunch on Sunday to see Troy dressed in his costume, so of course we had to go to the nearest Burger King (not nearby, by the way) to get lunch. You would have thought a gen-u-wine celebrity had landed in the restaurant. The little kids were clapping their hands together and pointing, "There's the KING!!" The manager and all the counter ladies came around front with their cameras to have their pictures taken with "the King." And to top it all off, they only charged me half for all but Troy's meal, and let Troy have whatever he wanted from the menu for free. McDonalds and KFC were not nearly so gracious later in the evening when their mascots visited.

Here are all four, I mean, three, amigos.
A good time was had by all, and there's enough candy in the house to take us through to Easter.
