Since I have severe food allergies it's nearly impossible to get a cake or baked goods from a bakery or grocery store. I decided that I really wanted chocolate cupcakes with butter cream frosting. Every time Ive attempted to make cupcakes they are a complete failure. This time I managed to have success and they were quite good. The recipe is from Martha Stewart's Cupcakes.
Then of course, we had Thanksgiving. Rob and Shannon came over and hung out for the day. They worked on refinishing a chest and then came in and helped with dinner. For the past few years we have had our Thanksgiving on Monday since Andy has the week off. We then get to have turkey all week long and not have to worry with cooking.
Earlier this year I won a book naming contest on Veryl Ann Graces blog. I was so excited that she chose the title that I had come up with! Last week a signed copy of Murder Comes Unraveled arrived in our mail box. I loved the first book in this series, Murder Spins a Tale, and the second one is equally as good! When I opened the book, I was so surprised to see that Veryl had mentioned me in the dedication. I am so honored and was quite speechless! Thank you so much Veryl. Not only do I get to read another wonderful book written by you, but I will have this very special copy too!
Ive also had knitting time and am now up to 198 Hexipuffs! Ive recently coerced Beth into making them as well. I can't wait to see her's. She's such a prolific knitter, I bet her quilt will be done in no time!
