It took a while to get to my sewing machine, but when I did - I got busy!!
Getting back to cooking was also important as that is also a way I relax. Friends were hinting their disappointment that they might not get their goody basket for Christmas or have the platters I am known to prepare for Court folks and folks taking care of my mother. HaH!! I have already created the Banana Bread, Banana Walnut Bread, Apple Spice Bread, and Cranberry Sauce Breads and they are in the freezer for aging and safe keeping. However, the Banana Bread caused me to sustain a bad burn when the oven closed on my arm (sitting and loading the oven doesn't work easily) and the Cranberry Sauce Bread resulted in a badly bruised big toe and foot when a can fell off the counter onto my foot (attached to the bad leg). I will survive and I can cook again. On to Thanksgiving where I will let restaurant staffers do the cooking and the remainder of the holidays.
