Thursday Thankful....

Let's cut right to it, shall we?

1. Milk, glorious milk! Our does are still milking their little hearts out - to the point that I had 3 gallons in the fridge this AM. So, today I am making Manchego.

2. Forgetful accounting. I forgot to write in a deposit, so I had an extra $40 in my account. Doesn't sound like much, but I was able to buy our turkey yesterday (24 pounder, for $0.98/pound) I still need to round up the side dishes, but that's no big deal.

3. The internet. See, SG asked for sweet potatoes for turkey-day. I've never seen them served any way except for sweet potato pie, so...I needed marshmallows. Only.....marshmallows aren't kosher. Not locally, anyway.....but, thanks to the internet, I was able to find kosher ones (made with Glatt Beef gelatin!); they're not cheap, but they're currently on the way here. Of course.....I have since found out that SG has never HAD sweet potato pie, so.....I guess I need to find something else to use the marshmallows in. :lol:

4. Field trips. We're gearing up for our next field trip - the Dead Sea Scrolls are in Ft. Worth, and we're going to go sometime this month. :bounce:

I've got more, but I'll save them - we need to get school started. And I need to cut the curds!
