Thanksgiving holiday is coming up on November 22 for USA citizens.
In the USA turkeys are plentiful and not very expensive. Here it is a different story. A turkey or two will start showing up in some of the grocery store freezers towards the end of October.
Yesterday I purchased a frozen turkey that was around 13 pounds (6 kilos). Turkey for our family here in the Philippines is a once a year treat. It costs around $3.50 per pound!
Our turkey is in the freezer and will be cooked on November 22. We have invited a few friends over to share our Thanksgiving meal.
We will also be sharing our thanks to God for His abundant blessings, mercies and graces in our lives.
James is memorizing Psalm 118:1 "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for his steadfast love endures forever."
A great verse to know and meditate on.
Thankful for family, friends, turkey and much more!!!!
James was hungry this morning. He had a merienda (snack), then says, "That was good mom but I still have two hunger bars left."
Knowing he was talking in MineCraft jargon I replied, "well, just play in safe mode til lunch and then we will fill you up so you have no hunger bars left."
Ben, Kurt, and James are really into MineCraft. As a father/son project, Ben and Kurt are working on developing a minecraft server of their own!

My family wanted me to blog about my cook book!
I've gotten very absent minded since Jerard died. I've gotten quite good at starting to cook and then walking away to do something else, totally forgetting there is food on the stove to be tended. So I've burnt many pots of rice.
So, what happens to a cookbook left on a flaming burner?
Yep, it catches on fire! The smell of burning paper and smoke alerted me to the fire! So I'm hoping I can find another copy of this book! It's my favourite cookbook!
