Over the Top Award


I've finally emerged from the whirlwind of cleaning, cooking and company that goes along with Thanksgiving. We're talking (this is one day's cooking) 4 sweet potato pies, 4 pecan pies, 2 blueberry pies, 2 turkeys brined, one ham, chicken salad.... followed by a full breakfast cooked on two mornings. As you can imagine, I've hung up my apron for a few days.....

I have a fun award from Ann of Blue Bird Hill blog! Do visit Ann... she has some beautiful art. Though she may not know this, Ann was one of my earliest inspirations in colored pencil work... and I continue to be inspired by her work.

The rules are:

I need to pass this award on to five people, then I need to answer a list of questions in ONE word. (a rule I was unable to abide by :-)

You made all those pies in one day!!! Next time we're coming to your house :-)
Did I tell you that Jack looks awesome? You did a wonderful job with his portrait.

Laure Ferlita said...

Wow, what a feast! Think I'm coming to your house next year! ;•)

Well deserved award, Ms. T!

And thanks for sending it my way! I'm honored!

Karen said...

Loved reading this, Teresa! Felt I got to know you a little better!

Rosie said...

Wow, your Thanksgiving feast sounds wonderful - the preparation must have taken ages no wonder you are having a rest from cooking - enjoyed reading your list, too:)

Krista Meister said...

Great post, Teresa! Nice getting to know you better. I see we share the same fear of heights. I can't even get on a ladder without freaking out. Ironically, I was going to name you (and Laure!) for the award, but saw you'd already been named!

And I got Laurel with mine. Thanks T. You didn't tell about all the 2 day cleaning marathon you did before the cooking one. I would have died doing that much. Sure bet your house smelled nice and yummy for days. Sounds like you will have a lot of company next year. I bet it won't be as quiet at your parents house with all the company.

My Goodness .... how many were you cooking for???

Whilst you were slaving away over a hot stove, we were at our holiday home in the Canaries as hubby (David) had a birthday on 27th and we like to celebrate it somewhere warm and sunny (where I don't have to do so much cooking and cleaning) :o)

Jan said...

Aren't you glad that Thanksgiving is over? It's my favorite holiday but it's a lot of work at the same time.

Thanks so much for the award, I'm putting it up as soon as I leave here!

Gary Keimig said...

Sounds like a lot of work. I like the pie cooking part. My favorite kind of desert and wouldn't you know my favorite would be the Blueberry Pie.
Really liked what you did with Jack. Great personality.

A very fun, well-deserved award!
