Veal (or Turkey) Meatballs with Basil Cream Sauce from From My Carolina Home

Ready for a delicious dinner that is on the table in under half an hour? I have had this recipe ready to go for some time, but just haven’t had the time to get to it.  It is so good that I’ve made it several times already and My Sweet Babboo thinks it is a winner.  With only 15 minutes to prep, and 15 to cook, it comes together really fast.  I really like the delicate flavor of veal for these meatballs, but I know veal is expensive, and I don’t buy it unless it is a ...

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving from Clever Chameleon

Happy Thanksgiving table top quilt with turkey at Clever Chameleon

Wishing all my Canadian friends a wonderful holiday for the coming weekend

Australians as a whole don’t do Thanksgiving, although many traditional churches do have a low-key harvest thanksgiving service in our late summer or early autumn. But I like thankfulness, and since it’s likely impossible to indulge in too much thankfulness, the Chameleon and I are getting on the Canadian bandwagon today. Happy Thanksgiving for the weekend and Monday, Canadian friends and everyone!

Talking Turkey: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Talking Turkey colour board at Clever Chameleon

October’s Island Batik Challenge is “Top It Off”

Top it off button for October's Island Batik challenge

My challenge as an Island Batik Ambassador in October is to: create a holiday runner or table topper, any size; must include appliqué. But don’t you think that’s a bit too easy for the Chameleon? He’s a challenge veteran by now!

So, let’s make it a proper challenge then. Purely self-imposed. Hmmm…… How about also: use the Accuquilt Cleopatra’s Fan die supplied in the July ambassador supplies box; make it juvenile; and choose a culturally irrelevant holiday. That should Top it right Off!

Hahaha. Sure! Luckily ...

Snow Birds from From My Carolina Home

There have been a wide variety birds on the feeder this month, particularly when it snowed earlier in December.   DH has kept the feeder full of nice cracked sunflower seeds, and I made a suet cake for them too.  The goldfinches on the upper left have put on their more drab winter garb.  The one on the upper right is a Carolina wren, with a titmouse and then a bluebird below.  We have chickadees and nuthatches too.

We seem to have a whole family of bluebirds, three of them sharing the lower feeder on this cold and snowy day.

Christmas Dinner from From My Carolina Home

This weekend is the time to shop for those holiday foods for Christmas dinner.  This is a fun time, planning the meal, deciding what would be festive and special.  For many years now, we have done a Standing Rib Roast.  Yes, a bit expensive, but it is Christmas and that is only once a year.  These are not difficult to cook, and that post will show you step by step how to do it.

Beginning of Winter from From My Carolina Home

After a warmer than usual Autumn, we finally got a cold spell over the past couple of weeks, turning the remaining leaves pretty colors. Most of the trees are bare now, but a few remain here and there.  This picture is from the last week in November, early morning mist is settled in the valley with clouds low over the distant mountain ridge.

the weekend of thanksgiving . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

This is going to be a culmination post ... covering the long weekend which isn't really over, because we get Monday, too -- but that will be for another day's post.

Wednesday was pie and prep day. I love pie and prep day! This year's was particularly good because I found the *best* pecan pie recipe. Pecan Pie is Todd's favorite, and for years I've struggled to find a recipe that felt no-fail and tasted delicious.  
This year, thanks to Genius Kitchen and PCrocker, my search is over. I admit that I made a few changes right ...

Delicious Ways with Leftover Turkey from From My Carolina Home

Are you tired of turkey yet?  Sometimes I freeze big portions of turkey to use later, and most years I’ll boil the bones for soup, or turkey and dumplings.  I thought today would be a great day to show you some recipes to make the leftovers taste like a fresh meal with different flavors.  Starting off, this recipe uses a lot of little bits left over, with your leftover cranberry sauce and some barbeque sauce, you have a totally new meal.  I used toast only because I didn’t have any sesame seed buns, but they are great with ...

Turkey..Pie..Nap…Oh MY! from Lisa H Calle's Blog


The sun is shining brightly in Hilton Head where I prepare to tee off for a round of golf; my second love in life. But before I venture into the rolling, green hills composed of 19 holes I wanted to wish all my fellow followers a Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope your plans include eating WAY too much turkey, indulging in a few holiday drinks and slumbering peacefully as Mr. Tryptophan slips you into nappy land.  Those are my intentions for the next 24 hours!

     What would Thanksgiving be without including Black Friday and Cyber Monday? So let’s whoop it ...

Thanksgiving Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

I love Thanksgiving, it is my favorite day of the year!  We usually don’t have company on the day, but we enjoy extending the holiday through the weekend before getting to the December frenzy.  On Saturday, we are having a small dinner party of six, so of course that means a pretty table.  I set it up early so I can enjoy it all week.

So many reasons to be thankful... from Sew Preeti Quilts

I was not going to write about it because this is a quilting blog and not an everyday life kinda blog. But it is my quilter friends that I am thankful for and it is the everyday life that inspires my quilting.

Give Thanks from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

In my family (Kara), the Thanksgiving meal has a lot of must-haves. Stuffing is probably the most critical element, but you can't have stuffing without good turkey.

With all of that, you have to have gravy, which is my personal favorite. Our must-haves are so important that we once stopped a Thanksgiving meal just as we were sitting down, because I forgot to make the green bean casserole, which is my son's favorite.

Over here in Germany, today is just like any other day for obvious reasons, but living where we do, there are a lot of Americans ...

I was looking for something totally different last night and came across this page with recipes for smoked turkey. If you scroll down a bit you’ll see a recipe for smoked turkey with blue corn stuffing and cranberry salsa. I don’t have blue cornmeal so I’ll use regular cornmeal but the stuffing looks good –...

September in the Garden from From My Carolina Home

The garden is winding down, and the hurricane has helped to move things along.  A few critters did their share too. DH modified the bird feeder so that less seed would spill into the tray, which made it a bit more difficult for the larger birds like the cardinals to eat. So, feeling sorry for them, he purchased a second feeder, and mounted it below the first one.  The little birds like the goldfinches began using the new one pretty quickly. The cardinals continued to go to the big one.

Then later, success, they figured it out.  He later added ...
