    That's so sweet of you, Faye! Thank you for celebrating with me!! I will share ... and certain the response will be, "It's a privilege to serve!"

    Em2s - I am so thrilled to hear your soldier is home safe!!!! Please pass on my thanks for noble service to our country.

    Observant - the link for the cookie recipes and photos is below. You can also search for posts you are looking for in the search box at the top right of every page on wral.com. For instance, to find the cookie recipes, I typed in "cookie swap" and scrolled down to find the most recent post. I hope that helps when you are looking for stuff on the blog in the future since it's so time consuming to try to scroll through pages and pages of past posts. :-)

    Prime rib feast - ?! Could cause blog caravan-ing even in polar bear weather ;)

    OvErJoYeD...got word our soldier is home from combat. Wishing we could all have traveled to give a hero's 'Welcome!' ...and so longing that everyone's soldier was home safe and sound! Deeply grateful for everyone that serves - hometown or abroad!!

    Hoping to keep those in my 'nest' warm this evening with cassoulet (navy beans slow-cooked overnight, added several thawed freezer items incl Thanksgiving ham, pork roast from last weekend's sliders, bacon crumbles from breakfast, etc). Will serve with seasoned croutons, bread 'n butter pickles (thanks to sweet aunt) & sharp white cheddar cubes (freezer/thawed), hot beverage bar & blackberry pizzert. Head-to-toe warm wishes to each of you & your loved ones!

    Observant, your menu sound lovely! Enjoy the good food and good company! :)

    Coupon4me, have fun baking. I may do some myself. ;)

    Dinner last night was homemade meatball parmigiana wedges (what we call subs back home). I think tonight's menu will depend if I bake this afternoon.
