**I have a feeling I know in what direction most will go this week, so of course I’ll take the opposite route.

I thought I’d try a humorous haiku today. Sorry––not sorry. 😉

Haiku Friday – Love & Last

30 Apr

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge

 

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I have to admit that when I read the prompt words for this week’s Haiku Friday, Love and Last, I was in a weird sort of mood. Once in a while, I get in a goofy, laugh at everything, I want to play and joke around mood, and that’s the kind of mood I was in when I wrote this week’s haiku. I was also starving after hours of writing and I wanted to celebrate because the writing went well. So I celebrated with––you guessed it––food.

I love leftovers

YOU

A million stars

Twinkle above in the night sky

One shines the brightest

Do you believe in true love? Are you in love?

Do you enjoy leftovers? What are your favorite leftover foods?

One Of My Favorite Words: Scrumptious!

60 Stylish Table Settings for Thanksgiving – under the table & dreaming by Stephanie Lynn

 

 

Hello, and welcome to my blog! I am a writer, but I am also a woman with many interests, and I’m a bit of a “foodie.” Anyone who knows me well would agree. I enjoy trying new recipes and even inventing recipes of my own. Baking, grilling, broiling — I love it all. I also enjoy eating good food (prepared with love of course, it’s the tastiest kind). I have prepared a list of food traditionally prepared for Thanksgiving so that even those of you who don’t traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving in your country can enjoy a feast fit for a king and queen on Thursday the 28th of November, or whenever.

I remember when I moved into my first house, everyone expected me to host Thanksgiving dinner at my new place. I searched all over the net for recipes. I had 15 guests! Everything turned out great (thank God). I have found some delicious recipes in various terrific blogs. Here I provide a menu of recipes so that anyone can prepare a complete and delicious Thanksgiving meal. If you’ve never hosted a Thanksgiving meal before maybe you should surprise your family this year. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a great deal of fun, and your place will be blessed in the process. (To find the recipes and instructions click on the title links above each picture.)

I would love to hear about any funny (recipe gone wrong), unusual (Tofurkey anyone?) or rewarding (you invited a homeless person to dinner) Thanksgiving experiences you might have had. Feel free to tell me all about it in the comments section. I will share my favorites in a future post. ;D

 

 

I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without a beautifully roasted turkey. 😛
