And it begins...Thanksgiving preparations closely followed by Christmas decorations, altho I have heard quite a few people who are doing the Christmas decor first. I was even thinking about beginning with the Christmas decorating this weekend...IF I can convince someone to bring it all down from the attic! Do I really want to go thru that? Am I really ready to hear grumbling about getting it all down, THEN the choice words because most of the lights won't light up? Heck yeah...afterall, that is what its all about right? Us women see it as ohhh and ahhhh look how pretty this will look....not our men, they see it as I am about to cut every damned light out of this tree and string new ones! Oh Joy ! 

I am totally looking forward to having an entire week off. I know it will just fly by but that's okay...I am still looking forward to it. The early part of the week will be spent preparing for Thanksgiving dinner here at our house with my little family. I am really looking forward to that...all the fixin's! Turkey, ham, dressing, sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, corn casserole, rolls and dessert! OH and let us not forget the wonderful gelled cranberry sauce (that only I eat). It will be a feast at the Hernandez house. Then the end of the week, we are trying to get away from it all for a couple of days...SO hoping that works out for us.
As most of you know or read today...Hostess Bakery is going bankrupt and shutting down more Twinkies, DingDongs, HoHo's, Snoballs and O M G Donettes!!!!! Say it isn't so!!!What is this world coming to? I swear if Lil Debbie's ever shuts down, there will be mass rioting and it will not be nice (and that is just in MY family!) In all seriousness tho, it saddens me to see businesses shutting down after being around for so many years! This company will lay off 18,500 workers! That's just awful. I guess its a sign of things to come...God bless us all!

I will have a special overnight you can't guess who it is! He has us wrapped around his little finger and has our hearts so full of joy! Cannot wait for him to get here!

Have a blessed weekend. I will leave you with a delicious recipe that you can make for Thanksgiving...everyone will love it...I promise!



  • 1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 1 (8-ounce) package corn muffin mix (recommended: Jiffy)
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, stir together the 2 cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, and melted butter. Pour into a greased 9 by 13-inch casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheddar cheese. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.
