I brought our homegrown sweet potatoes to my family's Thanksgiving, along with a fresh cranberry relish. Took advantage of a few online Black Friday sales- 30% off a book on Amazon, discounted fabric and shipping at Joann's, & 30% off men's clothing on Amazon. I went through Swagbucks and ebates when they gave points, and went through The Prudent Homemaker's website, when it was a category that didn't give points, as I believe those type links get a credit regardless of category. If that's is incorrect, please share. After delivering soap to a client on Black Friday, I stopped by a couple of thrift stores, for their 50% off sales - one store had everything at 50% off, the other had all clothing at 50% off and housewares at .10. My favorite find was a large floral rug at 50% off.

After we ate Thanksgiving leftovers on Friday, I still had a bit of sweet potatoes and cranberry relish. On Saturday, I turned those into muffins, using our eggs. Made colcannon using our potatoes. I've been reading about the benefits of bone broth. As I'm a longtime vegetarian, I asked my sister if I could have the two drumstick bones to make bone broth for the pups. Though I followed directions, my first try boiled dry in the slow cooker, so I tried again, on low this time, and they were very happy pups. I'm adding a few spoonfuls of broth to their dinners each night.
J and I planted our garlic. With rain in the forecast, it seemed like a good time. I harvested the dried pods of okra for seed. Made progress on my new item for next week's show, I've got 6 finished, with high hopes to finish more this week. I'm pleased with how they're turning out, and need to take a photo to share here. Made a frittata using our eggs and potatoes, and roasted brussels sprouts with our garlic. Made yogurt. How was your week?
