The last 2 months have just FLOWN by for me, and the first thing I gave up was blogging. But now I'm ready to get back to it. I'm not sure how many readers I have anymore, but whoever you are, I've missed you! I've had a very fun fall, so I will eventually recap the highlights for you. For now, I'll talk about this past weekend: Thanksgiving!

It's been 3 years since I started this blog! Happy anniversary to my little cyber garden. This Thanksgiving has been really great. We "got my parents" this year, so they were here to help celebrate and cook (well, my mom helped with the cooking and dad dog-sat the pups). It was a perfect meal!
Here is Todd's beautiful fresh bird. I don't know if it was so special because it was fresh and never frozen, or all the love Todd put into the brine. Whatever the reason, it was magic.

You all know that my Thanksgiving breakfast tradition is to bake monkey bread. This year was no exception. Every year I have a dilemma because my bread grows so much that I wake up to an evil monster lurking in the kitchen. This year, I decided to outsmart the small bundt pan, and make it like the restaurants who serve it on their buffets. In a big pan.
Finally, I woke up to what I expected! The bread had risen without a mess! I learned that it is more difficult to cook this way. I need to put foil over it so that it completely bakes without over-browning. Oh well, next year will be even better!

And this is what we got to eat!
Our pups had a great time being SPOILED rotten by their grandparents. They went on walks, and took naps on the couch, and got belly rubs all day and night long. Just LOOK AT THIS!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, however you wished to celebrate! Thanks for reading, and I'll yap with you again soon.
