I had seen a couple of recipes on Pinterest that I was interested in making so decided to work on that for a bit. Had to run to Raleys to get some ground turkey breast and of course a few other things. Home and some lunch and I got started on the dishes.
For Ken, it was an andouille and broccoli with cheese dish. For me I made some shredded zucchini and the ground turkey breast making burgers out of them. Both of the dishes were really easy, but i sure can make a mess in the kitchen! Just not a neat cook haha.

At 1400 Ken went next door to help Karen carve some pumpkins. Never was my thing so I was happy to stay home and do this and a few other things. Even when the kids were young that was Ken's thing with them.

He got home at 1600 and said she said to come get me, her mom Izzie was over and Karen was making clam chowder (not my thing either hahah). We had already decided the day before that we were going over for Happy Hour since it was Halloween. I took some salami, cheese and crackers. We had a nice visit and eventually John got home. We left just a little after 1830 to come home.
We watched some television and enjoyed our dinner. Started a fire in the fireplace as it was getting cooler.

This morning (Thursday) I was awake about 0400 but didn't start the coffee until 0500. Enjoyed our leisurely morning reading about where our friends are who have started their southernly trek! Always fun to see where everyone ends up.

Like Ken said "I think I have
too much time on my hands"..LOL

I ran to town to get some water as we were out and get my hair cut. Got the water but Shari was in Reno working today so made an appointment for tomorrow.
WE haven't had a baked whole chicken in forever so picked one up for just a little over $4.00 today and stuck it in the oven when I got home. Smelled so good cooking! I also added some onions and sliced turnips to the pan. Since I'm not eating potatoes thought i'd try the turnips this way. Surprisingly they looked like my mom's roasted potatoes and they tasted pretty darn good!

Ken went and got the Jayco from next door and brought it home. He took the scary man down until next year and just got some things done.
We talked this afternoon and it looks like in order to fit everything in and be back home for his appointment on March 6th we'll probably be leaving right after Christmas. Hoping to meet up with our friends in Quartzite in January before we head for TN.
Since my grandkids are too old to Trick or Treat I had to steal my sister Linda's grandkids..

Have a wonderful evening!
