Doo not ete me!

We did not eat the chalk turkey.
We ate a different turkey.
And it was the best roasted 'herb' turkey I've ever cooked/eaten.
Found the recipe here.

I also have a new phone/camera/life enhancer that I am learning and playing
around with and found an app that little mr. b, my comic lover especially likes.
(I really did love my old dumb phone, but it stopped speaking to me & I had to move on.)
I've also been taught by that young man how to make a screen shot,
so you can see what I used to alter that beautiful 'herb' turkey picture.
Here's that for you now:

I have one last screen shot for you.  I took it the old fashioned way.
We paused the screen, I walked up to the television and took a picture.
Because with all this 'herb' turkey talk,
I had to laugh when the following popped up.

(25 seconds - I rock in the running to get the camera category!)

Apparently, followers of a certain cartoon will all soon be speaking Ferb Latin.
And adding 'erb' to  many of our words.

Hi guys. Whatcha doin'?
Erb-ferb Atin-Lerb.

We heart Phineas & Ferb. We also love Candace, who totally reminds us of one of our children,
who is taking Latin right now. She's worried about her grade in that class.
Maybe she'd do better with Ferb-Latin. It might seem more familiar to her.

This year I am thankful for:
emerging readers & writers
the ability to laugh
my family
my friends
good 'herbs'
and that our turkey wasn't one bit chalky.

Ok, so I am very thankful for oh so much more than just that list. You need to know that. Also, you need to know that I am especially grateful for you. Thanks for spending a little of your precious time here with me.
Happy Thanksgiving {weekend}!

PS- I forgot to show you the Thanksgiving pepper miss s caught for us.
It had disguised itself as a little turkey, but miss s is clever - she found it and carved it up.
yum, yum, yum.


  1. Great post! And your herb turkey was delightful. Probably the best I have ever eaten.

  2. PS - I'm really glad you're blogging again.


So glad you've come to visit!
I'd love to hear {read};) your thoughts!

Again, I haven't written in a while, but I don't want to forget this one. It's a doozy. I work in an elementary school. I teach ...
