One of the best parts

There is a lot to like about the holidays but there is one thing that I think is at the top of my list.....


The holiday appetizers are in the stores.  I'm such a sucker for these.  I am filling the freezer with an assortment.  These were the shrimp collection.  I hate to admit the number of evenings in my future where I will have an entire supper of appetizers.  Good thing I bought a jumbo bottle of plum sauce.  

I hit a bit of a snag today with the chicken wire project.  It seems you can't buy small enough quantities for me.  You have to buy a big roll.  So I'm going to ask around.  I am sure somebody must have some in their garage or basement.  I'm not buying enough for a coop when I only need a square.  

It feels like another Polar Vortex this weekend.  It's really cold.  I passed on watching the Christmas Parade tonight. Better plan to stay in and be cozy.  Fluffy socks, slippers and sweatpants!!

  2. I like that picture. I have chicken wire. I would send you a square.
    Or two squares. Give me the measurements and I will mail you some.
    Early Christmas present. :)
    You are so funny with those appetizers. I have never seen them before.
    Stay bundled up and warm.

  7. I love walking around Sam's Club tasting all the appetizers during the holiday season...yep, I'm cheap! I always tell Jack it's our dinner! Ha! I skipped our town's holiday parade too..it was warmish, but rainy. When the kids were little I'd brave it....now I'm picky about what I subject my hair too! Have a great rest of this weekend!

  8. I don't suppose you could find a friend who has a bit of extra chicken wire lying around? If you lived around here, you could, no doubt! :-) the appetizers look amazing.

    Could you ask on your local Freecycle if you have it there?

  11. You're lucky you can eat those yummy appetizers. On my restricted diet, I no longer can eat them so you can eat double for me. My mouth is watering.

    Let me know by email how big you want the chicken wire. I just checked and I have a brand new roll of small holes chicken wire in my shed and I can mail it to you.

    Staying home is my choice these day. I'm even too tired to watch a movie, lol.
    Have a good week.
