Happy Thanksgiving!

I am sitting outside in the cool breeze while watching Emily play on her little pink ride-on toy...and thinking of how I don't have much to show or tell today because I spent a bit of the day yesterday cleaning out my pantry! My DIL was the one who did most of the work, cleaning and arranging...I was outside throwing stuff away and gathering up a total of two bags of stuff for the Goodwill. It is amazing how much gets stored in the pantry and NEVER used. I just decided if I hadn't touched it for a year or longer, I probably never would. I'm ashamed to say we found things that had expired as far back as 2005. Scary...but then again, it was things we would never eat anyway.

I am thankful for many things...mostly my family, the roof over my head, good food to eat, and all of you, my blogger friends! Thanks for aways being there, and I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful! See ya again soon!
xoxo- Julie

I never fail to find grossly expired items in my pantry. It's always refreshing to give it a good cleansing (:

I chuckled when I read that you were sitting outside. Here we are having our first snow flurries after receiving 4.5" of rain the past two days. I am ever thankful of the rain. We are still 10" behind for the year. I will take every drop. Happy Thanksgving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Julie!

Your are not alone...I sorted through my pantry today and found a container of baking powder dating back to 2007. lol

Julie, I thought about sitting outside yesterday to enjoy a cool breeze after being in the hot kitchen for so long, but the temp with the wind chill factor was minus four.

Hey, how come there's still a can of pumpkin in the pantry? Shouldn't that have been put in a pie? ha-ha

I really enjoy the variety of subjects that you blog about.
