Mona’s, November Food for Thought

I still have not heard from the Jason Show. You will hear about it on Facebook.

I’m not a fan of fall, but October is great for two reasons….my birthday and Halloween. Of course, both require costumes.

My Kiss costume was painted on by Jeff Dougherty

BIRTHDAYS in our household were special and “special” is what I do each year. I don’t cry anymore… I’m just glad I’m still here!

Two years ago friends of mine had a huge party for me, no special age, just nothing to do in Side Lake at the end of October.

About 85 extroverts attended. The noise level was unbelievable. Well, I broke my ankle getting in my Uber car and didn’t go to the clinic until Wednesday. Yup, it was broken. I had to leave for Sauk Centre on Friday and fly to Florida with my daughter-in-law Sarah and friend Jackie. It took a lot of people to help me pack, fill the vehicle with gas, go to the bathroom, etc… I had a 4-1/2 hour drive without stopping. My wheel chair and crutches were in the vehicle. I made it and had a great time! I am a very careful walker now. The boot is not fun!

This year for my Birthday Costume I wore my fascinator , tux jacket with red bow tie & white gloves.

Picture is with my funny cousin Brian from Alaska. I’m cradling a large bottle of vodka.

Ready for a turkey, dressing or stuffing, or whatever you call it!?

I use Bernie Borovac’s Dressing Recipe every Thanksgiving! It can be found on page 104 of “Let’s Party“.
Great salads are my favorites! Wilted Lettuce and Boston Inn Salad on page 112. Wilted Lettuce is an old recipe probably from the 1940’s. Try them!

Have a great Thanksgiving and don’t overdo it. Learn to pace yourself like I do! HA!!

Keep smiling, Mona

P. S. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU TRY SOME DECADENT CHOCOLATE ‼️😋
