It's Nancy's Fault

Just kidding, Nancy. It's wonderful to have you back to blogland.
But reading her latest post, and remembering that I began blogging with the same intention, to be consistent, faithful with posting, including pictures, :) made me realize how lazy-- I hate that word, but it fits--shame shame-- I have been.
So, with a big mea culpa, I'm making an attempt to get it done.
Only one catch, today we are going to see the wee princess, so there won't be anything for a couple days, again. Forgiven?
To share some information, hopefully worth reading: This Thanksgiving I decided to make different side dishes than my fam has enjoyed for dozens of years. Out with the green beans, canned cranberry sauce, dressing and sweet potatoes. This year, along with old faithful baked corn and mashed potatoes, I made spinach gratin, cranberry conserve and a dressing, all by Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. Everything I've ever made from her recipes has been easy and superb. These were no different. Incredible!! The fam actually loved them and preferred them to the regulars. Success!!!
How was your Thanksgiving?
Blessings,
Linda

I think that we all start off with the intention of being consistent with our posts and pictures and then life gets in the way and we don't live up to it. But I'm sure it's temporary! The recipes you tried sound wonderful and I'll have to look them up.

Oh you are not the only one that has been 'lazy' with blogging! I started off with the same intentions...to be faithful with it. but you know, life happens and sometimes it just takes precedence over blogging! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it :D

Enjoy your time with the princess!

Thanks for letting me off the hook. You are great cyber-friends.
I'll keep trying to do better.
