Thank You Blogger

Interesting and Noteworthy Blogger-powered Blogs

We had a terrific Thanksgiving here, if you celebrate, I hope you did too. And the icing on the cake (or should I say pie?) was that Blogger picked Taste With The Eyes as the Blog of Note for Thursday, November 27! WOW. In between cooking the Big Bird (25.90 lbs.) and making the dressing, other side dishes, and playing with my nephews, I took a break to post that adorable photo of Stone. Little did I know that a neat surprise was waiting for me! There were comments from folks far and wide who had never visited Taste With The Eyes before. All this was due to the absolute honor of being chosen as the Blog of Note. I am really excited to meet new bloggers. The friendships that I have made so far are amazing. It is a special relationship that we form and how we come to care for strangers met through our blogs, a unique experience indeed. To my old and new friends alike, I sure do relish your input. To the Blogger Team and Blogger Buzz at Google thank you so much for this awesome distinction and wonderful opportunity to make new friends.
Oh, the party is not over yet. At 1 o’clock this afternoon we have 20 or more friends stopping by for our annual open house, we call it Leftover Day. We’ll be putting the leftovers out on the buffet and grilling some delectable turkey and honeybaked ham sandwiches on the new panini maker!

Last night was a blast. After dinner, we played a hilarious game called Mad Gab. Everyone was in stitches. The boys insisted we play charades, so we did that too! So I’m wondering, how do you feel about leaving the dishes until the morning? Me? I feel just fine about it. Would rather laugh and play while everyone is here. The dishes can wait. But they can’t wait too long, now we’ve got another party in a few hours, so I gotta go take care of business…

  7. I’ll tell you how I feel about waiting for the next day to do dishes. It always seems like a good idea at the time, and then makes me feel worse in the morning if I had too much wine with dinner! Congrats on being named a blog of note!

    I wish you could too Ronell.

    Yeah Sandi – still washing… but wouldn’t trade it for anything. We had such a good time together with family and friends.

  13. LL,
    I have never heard of Blogs of Note, I found you thru Marie at Proud Italian Cook’s blog.

    Re: dishes left in the sink.

    You are kidding, right?
    I couldn’t leave them overnight.
    The kitchen has to be SPOTLESS or I wouldn’t go to bed!!!

    What time is the open house?
    I’ll be right over, I can do your dishes!!!

  14. Congrats! Wow what a mess to clean up lol. My mom started a tradition a few years ago of going out to this fancy restaurant for our Turkey Day. Good food, just not the same.

  15. Wow!! Fantastic blog! Great values: food and family and giving thanks. Thanks to you!
    Jann Gumbiner, check out my quilting blog

  16. I love your pics and am inspired. I’m a budding photographer married to a talented chef. Hmmm… I might eat a few cold dinners in the near future as I forsee myself taking too long trying to capture the aroma with my lens. I wanted to take a moment to answer your question regarding leaving the dishes for the next morning. I say, “Yes! Enjoy the dinner, the company, the evening!” But my husband on the other hand, is obsessive about cleaning as he cooks and leaving a spotlessly clean kitchen before he can enjoy his evening.

  17. Great Thanksgiving posts! I wish I would have left the dishes til morning too — I’m working on letting go of the little things for a while! Sounds like you had such fun … best wishes for the upcoming holidays as well!

  18. Congratulations on being chosen Blog of Note! 🙂

    I washed the glasses only the day after, so much safer for them, with me being wide awake instead of under turkey influence. It did take me three days, though, to put all those dishes and pans and pots back on the shelves and into the cupboards. 😉

  19. What a great idea, i wish i would have found you sooner! I wouldn’t have been eating stuffing for the past 3 days!
