The "Weekender"

I seemed to have turned into the Weekender, because as soon as the weekend approaches I turn into this cooking maniac.  This is mostly due to my new blog, but I also can't seem to find time during the week to get anything productively done except work.  So I have made it my mission to get in the kitchen with my mom and sister on the weekends and cook/bake up a storm.  The Holidays definitely encourage us to do this more often, so I hope I can keep this up after January!   

But I also try to keep busy during the weekends because during the week all I want to do when I get home is veg on the couch and watch television galore.  I recently found out that Madalene loathed TV!  She thought it was a waste of time and that we all could be doing better things with ourselves than being sucked into such nonsense.  Her words, not mine.  And for the most part I think she's right, but there will never be a time where I watch no TV.  So, on the weekends, I try my best to listen to her and keep my TV time to a minimum by staying active and creative in the kitchen.  This also helps me stay connected to her and my mom.  We've been having a blast in there and I'm learning soo much about my family, their past and how to keep all our traditions alive for the future.

So, the agenda for this weekend entails Frozen Yogurt Pumpkin Pie and gosh knows what else... probably just a lot of prepping for Thanksgiving Dinner!  We're going to brine and BBQ our Turkey this year.  Have a lovely weekend, All, and I'll share my cooking adventures with you next week!  Ciao.
