My mom is a expert seamstress/quilter and a beautiful lady.
My dad is a superb craftsman and quite the smart ass.
I have many qualities and traits that have been handed down to me from them and I love them both very much. Thank you mom and dad for everything.

1. My friend Laura Johnson has this witch from H.R. Puffnstuff as her profile pic on facebook, I laughed out loud to myself when I saw this. Thanks Laura, you kill me.
I am also thankful for this quote I read at Jimmy John's gourmet sandwich shop while having lunch with Mike and I will tell you I thought of you Kayola when I read it.

I am thankful for candied sweet potatoes. Last night we had meatloaf with bacon on top YUM, candied sweet potatoes, and green beans that we canned this summer for dinner (Carolee, I' m not sure if you remember but dinner is the thing you make in the evening for your starving family that you love and you don't have to own a duster to do it). Mike made the sweet potatoes and they were heavenly. Here is the recipe for y'all.
Candied sweet potatoes
4 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 T. butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts or tiny marshmallows
1. Peel fresh sweet potatoes; cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks. Cook covered in enough boiling water to cover for 10 to 12 minutes or until just tender; drain.
2. Transfer potatoes to a 2-quart baking dish. Add brown sugar and melted butter; stir gently to combine. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are glazed, stirring gently twice. Sprinkle with nuts or marshmallows; bake 5 minutes longer.

It is kind of a funny thing that I joke around with my sister and friends, my sweet pink duster. My sister and I will often say in a phone conversation, "Can I wear my duster?" (to a restaraunt,etc.)
Anyway, hats off to my duster, love you so much friend and am so thankful for you!

Today I am thankful for Lion House buttermints. I have a small tub of these in my office that I forget are there, but when I happen on them it is such a joy to pop one into my mouth and feel it melting on my tongue with the sweet buttery taste a true blessing to my mouth. Enough of that. Have a great Tuesday.
