You must have some strange tea....I never put chopped vegetables in mine. Cinnamon or peppermint maybe, but never vegetables. :grin:

Sorry, no sales available for anyone who's name begins with a V. Well, maybe those chocolates. Care to share?

This morning I went back into the document with my Thanksgiving menu on it and added this year's results, including recipes, times - actual cooking times as well as preparations, for example how long it took the 12.2 lb. turkey to thaw in my refrigerator (not someone else's), and who liked (or didn't like) what. I did that last year and found it very useful this week. Saves little gray cells trying to remember.

What a great idea. Sort of like your grandmother's cookbook with all the little notations. Something for the next generation to see when it comes their time to do the dinner. The extra special touch is that they won't have to try and read your handwriting. Who said the 'good ole days were better'.
