This year's Thanksgiving was a little different this year. Daughter-in-law Michelle lent her Food Sciences skills yesterday making the world's greatest homemade apple pie ... and then for the first time, the turkey carcass didn't go home with my sister-in-law. I never make soup after Thanksgiving. I quit the kitchen after the big day each year. But, Michelle had Turkey Noodle Soup making in her plans for today.
And, I'm suffering from nesting instincts myself. Thinking of ways to bring a new shine around the house. I decided to do it with paint ... today ... as my version of "Turkey Soup."
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
