Happy Thanksgiving to All our Friends and Relatives !!!!

I know I'm terribly behind in blogging, but there hasn't been anything too exciting to report from this end, just the ordinary day to day stuff. I have been scanning your blogs so I'm not behind in my reading.
We are preparing the motorhome for our winter journey, and finishing up chores that require attention here at the house, before we take off.
We did get the wasps under control finally, and Rick did manage to replace the few shingles on the roof that were bothering us as they were starting to curl.

This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving. We will be taking part in a big turkey dinner on Sunday with upwards of 20 friends and relatives.

I just popped my favourite Thanksgiving dish into the oven. And I will share my recipe here with you all...Let me know if you make it and also how you liked it. Our family looks forward to it every thanksgiving, I serve it as a vegetable

Sweet Potato Casserole
3 C sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
1 C white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporate milk
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1/3 cup butter

1/3 C flour
1 C brown sugar
1 C flaked coconut
1 C chopped pecans
1/3 C butter, melted

Combine all ingredients until smooth. Pour into 2 qt casserole dish. Mix all topping ingredients and spread over sweet potato mixture.

Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes

 We are excited about the eventual arrival of Larry and Marilyn, and also Angel and Buster. Then we will have something interesting to blog about. It is also possible that other rvers will be travelling with Larry and Mar so we will also maybe make some new friends.

Take care everyone enjoy your weekend..and stay safe out there.....thanks for stopping by...

  1. Hey, Happy Thanksgiving! It sort of crept up on us. No such thing over here.
    When our daughter wrote to tell of their "weekend plans", we started to clue in.
    We're thinking I'll pick up a turkey breast for tomorrow and we'll stuff it. Nice and simple.
    Have fun.
