Then you have time to hop another plane and come here for pumpkin pie and birthday cake!

I'm about to start it now--I have to do a bit of clean up, and then I'm onto the supporting players. I have the casserole done, decided to do some ww cloverleaf rolls, so am loading the Bread Machine, and then it is Gingerbread time...stay tuned...I'm taking some ingredients from several of the yummy sounding recipes and incorporating them. We'll see with the DH thinks. If I have time, I'll make a stencil of a turkey and use it to dust the top with powdered sugar. If not, he'll eat it plain. Dang, I wish my digital camera hadn't died!

Fresh garden peas and gingerbread? I am going to heaven!

Wish you could have joined us, Addie. If I must say so myself, everything turned out perfect. I have a piece of gingerbread waiting for you with your name on it. And, we didn't eat the peas, thought those would be for you. I assume the mother ship will drop you off in your nightgown around 2:00 a.m. I'll leave the back light on and hope the mother ship doesn't get called back to base after take off...(wink).

Next week, my brother and his wife are in town for a bit so I'll do a giant ham, scalloped potatoes and I'll figure out the sides later.
How about 3 Bean Salad?

My guess is that it is gravy thickened with corn starch instead of with roux. I think corn starch is gluten-free.

Definitely in my nightgown. I hate putting clothes on. I love peas and look forward to the gingerbread. Just let Rocky and the girls know I am on my way.
